Be part of a team that is passionate and committed to making a positive difference to the lives of the pupils and their families; in an innovative new school in Rugby, for children and young people with autism and/or social, emo-tional and mental health needs.
In September 2019, MacIntyre Academies Trust opened a new and exciting Academy in a purpose built state of the art building in Rugby, Warwickshire for children and young people with social, emotional and mental health needs and/or autism , aged between 7 years and 19 years. The new school has specialist facilities including a sensory room, therapy room, interactive immersive classroom, soft play room, recording studio and photography suite. We are very proud of our holistic curriculum which enables the pupils to benefit from blended therapy in the classroom. We have a café located at the front of the school where parents can meet and the pupils can display the items they have made within the school which will be available to purchase. We are passionate to support our pupils and families from the local community to ensure the best outcomes.
Whilst the new building was being constructed the academy was located in a temporary modern school building on the out-skirts of Nuneaton and opened with 30 pupils in September 2017 rising to 55 pupils in September 2018.
MacIntyre Academies is delighted to have been chosen to set up this new Academy which joins the existing ‘Endeavour Academy’ in Oxford which opened in 2014 and ‘Discovery Academy’ which opened in September 2015. MacIntyre Academies is sponsored by MacIntyre Charity, which over the
last 50 years, has developed a strong reputation nationally, as a high quality, person centred organisation.
We are currently recruiting for an inspirational and creative Class Teacher to join this new and exciting school, this a really exciting opportunity to be part of something very special from the start.
Reporting to the Deputy Principal you will be responsible for the delivery of teaching and learning within the range of key stages 2, 3, 4 and post 16 whilst looking for continuous improvement by monitoring and assessing the achievement of our young people. You will line manage teaching support staff and provide effective communication and guidance surrounding lesson requirements.
You will also work closely with internal and external stakeholders to successfully deliver the vision, ethos, aims and objectives of the academy. This will enable successful learning and achievement by young people and sustained improvement in their spiritual, moral, social, cultural, mental and physical well-being in preparation for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life.
You will need to be an exceptional classroom practitioner, hold QTS and have demonstrable experience of working with Children and Young people with Autism, associated challenging behaviour and other complex needs, whilst demonstrating proven experience of implementing the national curriculum at key stages 2, 3, 4 and post 16.

If you have Autism, BESD or Alternative Provision experience that will be an advantage but not essential.
