Woodlands School is an outstanding special school for pupils aged 2 to 19 years of age with severe or profound learning difficulties or an autistic spectrum disorder.
We are currently looking to appoint a maternity cover teacher to teach our EYFS Class. They will need knowledge, experience or an interest in special education. Applications are welcome from teachers with primary or secondary experience, who are able to teach a wide range of subjects to pupils at the earliest levels of learning, preferably with some experience of working with pupils in the Early Years Foundation Stage.
It is likely that the successful candidate will have recent, relevant experience of working with young people with severe learning difficulties, physical or sensory impairment, behavioural difficulties or autism. However, this role would suit a candidate at any stage in their career as a comprehensive induction and training package will be provided. We would welcome applications from:
- Unqualified teachers
- Experienced teachers
- Teachers currently working in mainstream schools who are keen to pursue a career in special education
Our pupils say "Come and work with us! Woodlands School is the best. We like to work hard and have fun. We would like someone nice, helpful and caring. Someone who is unflappable and can keep calm and cope in an emergency. We don't want miserable people here! We like happy, smiley staff. We want someone who supports us in our learning, and it is important that you celebrate our differences and successes, and encourage us to do our best and keep trying. Everyone at Woodlands wants to achieve with your help."
If you think you might be interested in this exciting opportunity then please do not hesitate to arrange an informal visit and we can share with you our very special school.
