We have an exciting opportunity for a passionate, dedicated, and innovative SEN Classroom Teacher to join our team at West Hill School. We are looking for an exceptional primary SEN teacher who can help our children to ACHIEVE as much as they possible can and FLOURISH in adult life. If you have prior experience this does not need to be from a special school and we welcome and support teachers looking to transfer from mainstream. We welcome applications from NQT’s.
West Hill historically was a secondary special school supporting children with Learning and Additional Needs (LAN) from 11-16. We are now a primary only setting. The Governing Body wishes to recruit exceptional primary teachers who are confident and enthusiastic about teaching a range of subjects.
Our primary children work at least 3-4 years away from age-related expectations and all pupils have an Education, Health and Care Plan covering a range of complex learning difficulties, including speech and language difficulties, autism and/or medical needs. Our models of learning mean that our children are based in mixed aged groups of 10-12 children. All teachers coordinate a subject and this will be defined upon arrival although for NQTs this will come later where possible.
We can offer you:
• Keen and eager children who are learning how to learn and ultimately love learning
• Friendly and support staff, parents and governors
• Varied curriculum and development opportunities
• An amazing environment in which children really thrive
Teachers at West Hill need to be team players and who embrace change as an opportunity. We are a “can do” school and we want innovation and enthusiasm to help us continue to develop our provision with us and drive forward our high standards. You will be a confident and adaptable individual who is ready to become part of our community.
