We are seeking to appoint a high quality, fully qualified teacher to join our team. The successful candidate will lead the planning, organisation and delivery of the Mathematics curriculum across the school; they will also contribute to the Culture programme and cross curricular working practice. Teachers at the school are encouraged to be involved in the provision of activities in our extended day/residential programme (this is not compulsory and is negotiated individually but is paid).
Elemore Hall is a well established and thriving Durham LA maintained, residential and day special school that has recently expanded to meet the needs of up to 86 secondary aged pupils who have social, emotional and mental health difficulties. Many of our pupils have additional general or specific learning difficulties.
The school is committed to providing academic, social and residential education of the highest quality in partnership with pupils, governors, parents, carers, the LA, health and other agencies. Due to our exceptional location, learning outside the classroom is a central feature of our provision. Pupils engage in a range of formal and informal activities, including horticulture, bushcraft, beekeeping, conservation and an appreciation of the natural environment as courses in their own right and to supplement and support the classroom curriculum. The successful candidate would be encouraged to make full use of our outstanding setting to fully support the mathematics curriculum and make extensive use of the opportunities for cross curricular study.
We would welcome applications from teachers of all levels of experience including NQTs, getting the right person for our school is our priority.
