Special Educational Needs Teacher – Kisimul School

Due to continued organisational growth and development we are recruiting for outstanding Teachers to join our Education Team at the beautiful Kisimul Upper School located in Friesthorpe, between Welton and Market Rasen.

About the job:

No two days are the same, so we want Teachers who can work at pace to turn ‘can’t do’ into ‘want to’ and are motivated by working with young people with complex needs. You will be highly motivated in your belief that every child can achieve and reach their potential.  The ideal candidate will enjoy working with children in a calm and engaging demeanour, whilst being resilient and using innovative styles of teaching.

We want to hear from people with drive and a willingness to go the ‘extra mile’ to improve the lives of the young people in our care. Whilst previous experience of working in a SEN environment would be desirable, excellent teaching skills and the right motivation, personal qualities and levels of resilience are just as important.

Visits to the school are actively encouraged and highly advisable.

What will I be doing?

• Establish and maintain good working relationships in order to promote the development and effective delivery of the school curriculum and maximise our young people’s achievement.

• Teaching students according to their educational needs and acknowledging that every lesson counts.

• Creating a well-ordered and secure environment that will ensure the educational well-being of individual children within the group.

• Managing behaviour with confidence, resilience and perseverance. Following agreed and consistent strategies alongside school, therapeutic and residential colleagues.

• Ensuring careful and ongoing assessment of the students learning to inform further planning and next steps.

• Ensuring that tasks and activities are matched to the ability of the children- allowing them to make progress at the right pace and level.

• Working with school leaders to complete and teach individual pupil plans where students have specific needs. 

• Liaising effectively with parents and a wide range of professionals.

What do I need?

• Must have appropriate teaching Qualification (QTS or QTLS)

• Have some knowledge of SLD / ASD

• Resilience

• Be an outstanding practitioner

• Understanding of the curriculum in order for successful planning and delivery

• The ability to manage challenging behaviour effectively

Why work for us?

A few reasons we think it’s a great place to work:

• Continuous professional development & training for a clear career path

• Pension

• Opportunity to enrich the lives of young people and make a positive difference

• Be part of a fantastic team who work hard together and support each other
