SEN Teacher required in a school on an exciting journey of improvement         

As Headteacher, from day one I’ve delivered a very clear message to our staff, students and parents. It is that every one of us must take ownership of ambition and raise our expectations of the success we can achieve, both individually and as a community. That idea now defines who we are. 

We are now looking for a SEN Teacher to successfully lead and be responsible for the teaching of students with Autistic Spectrum Disorders and/or Speech Language and Communication Needs, in a range of subject areas, within the schools enhanced learning provision, The Spectrum Centre.

All students who are part of the Spectrum Centre have an Education Health and Care Plan and are placed at the school by Croydon Local Authority. All students are taught a portion of their timetable in the Spectrum Centre and a portion in the mainstream, individual to each student’s needs.

The successful applicant will provide a high quality of teaching and learning provision to set clear learning objectives across the differing range of SEN needs and ages, (particularly those learners with Autistic Spectrum Disorders and other related conditions). You will also support students from the Spectrum Centre in their mainstream lessons, supervise and guide the work of any support staff (including TAs and HLTAs) who are assigned to work with post holders classes/students and ensure that a stimulating learning environment is maintained in the classroom, including provision of a high quality of display. 

This role allows you the opportunity to be part of the transformation of a community and the life chances of the amazing young people we serve. 

If you apply for this post, you must already be a dynamic, innovative teacher who will inspire, motivate and challenge. Above all, you will be passionate about helping our students set high expectations of behaviour, learning, motivation and presentation of work by establishing a purposeful working atmosphere and providing challenging and inspirational learning experiences. 

In return we can offer you a school that is totally focused on ensuring that every child is supported and challenged to deliver outstanding personal progress, the support of a leadership team dedicated to helping young people striving for more and as a GLF Schools’ employee, you will enjoy the benefit of working within an excellent support and learning network and will be exposed to significant collaboration opportunities across our schools. 

If you believe you have the skills required, we would like to hear from you. Contact our recruitment team by calling 020-8716-4987.

We would strongly recommend that you let us arrange a visit for you to visit the school to see for yourself why this is such a special opportunity.
