Working in partnership to inspire learning, empower individuals and enrich the community of the future’
Beormund is a primary Special School for children whose social, emotional, behavioural or mental health needs cannot presently be met in mainstream education. The School is located within in the Borough area of Southwark, with excellent public transport and community links
We believe that every child is unique and we strive to provide the best possible, tailored support for children to flourish socially, emotionally and academically. We have a dedicated, enthusiastic and caring staff team from a range of backgrounds and skills, who genuinely want the best possible outcomes for the children.
We deliver a broad, enriched and personalised curriculum, which inspires learning and pupils generally exceed the expected academic progress during their time at the school. We work in close partnership with parents, carers and stakeholders to meet the needs of our children, with the aim of returning them to mainstream education wherever possible at the age of 11, if not sooner. We have high expectations of our pupils, staff, parents and governors and we aim to provide a calm, structured and well-resourced environment, which provides the children and their families with a solid platform upon which to build successful, productive and happy lives.
Beormund is playing a key role in supporting Southwark’s primary behaviour support strategy and our ‘Beyond Beormund’ initiative is making an increasingly significant contribution to inclusive practice by training and coaching teaching and support staff in mainstream schools across the borough.
Building upon this success and the solid foundations laid by the current Headteacher, the School is looking to expand in numbers and the new Headteacher will play a central role in planning and implementing a proposed move to a new-build school. If you are as excited by this challenge as we are and think that you have the experience, skills and energy to realise this vision, come and see Beormund for yourself.
This is an extremely interesting and challenging role and visits to our school are positively encouraged. For more details or to arrange a visit please contact Julia Padmore on the above number or via email.
