Looking for a position in a school that is as committed to the continued development and support of its teaching staff as it is to its pupils?
At Moor End we have the secondary resourced provision for students within Kirklees with visual impairment, with a capacity for 12 fixed-term places and 2 transitional places. Students within the provision attend mainstream lessons and are fully integrated in to academy life. In addition to these places, the team also supports over 80 students, across secondary schools in Kirklees, in an outreach capacity. The team consists of highly skilled teachers, technicians and educational teaching assistants who support the students' access to the curriculum. Students in the provision also access a personalised additional curriculum, which supports their independence, including - amongst others - mobility, braille and touch-typing.
We have a number of experienced and skilled educational teaching assistants who support students and classes that require enhanced input to access the curriculum. English and maths have their own dedicated teaching assistant whilst the other teaching assistants are managed, supported, trained and allocated through the special educational needs department.
We are an 11-16 mixed comprehensive academy with 1000 students on roll. In 2015, Woodside Pre School opened in the grounds of Moor End Academy. Woodside Pre School serves 2-4 year olds and has a 36 place setting. In January 2016, it was rated as ‘Good’ by Ofsted, with the inspection report stating ‘Children of all abilities make good progress from their different starting points. They are eager to take part and are well prepared for the next steps in their learning.’
Beaumont Primary Academy opened its doors for the first time in September 2016 and the staff and students moved into their fantastic new building which is on our Dryclough site on September 2018. For more information please see www.beaumontprimary.org.uk.
