We are looking for a teacher to lead and manage provision for students with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities at Millbank Academy, including within our Additionally Resourced Provision for children with autism as it expands into its new home.
The Future Academies Trust is one of the country’s leading academy trusts; it was established with the intention of improving the life chances of children through an education that is built on the importance of knowledge, teachers who are experts in their subject, and an unwavering focus on raising aspirations for all. Our family of schools provide an exciting educational environment for students of all abilities, including students with complex Special Educational Needs and Disabilities. The Trust hosts 3 Additionally Resourced Provisions, including the Windmill at Millbank Academy, and prides itself on making its mainstream classrooms both aspirational and inclusive.
Millbank Academy is an OFSTED Outstanding school with an above-average percentage of children with EHCPs on its roll. In addition to this, it is the home of the Windmill, an Additionally Resourced Provision for students with a diagnosis of Autism.
