Crowdys Hill School is a dynamic and expanding special school for students with moderate learning difficulties and complex needs. The Primary continues to expand, and as a result we are currently seeking to employ teaching staff for our expanding school.
Although this role is to work within the primary, you will have the opportunity to teach across different phases of the school from KS1-KS3. This post includes an optional TLR - see additional attached job description and state on your application form if you are applying for the TLR post as well.
Our school takes a very person-centred approach to each of our students’ learning to maximise their independence and realise their aspirations. This really is a very exciting time to join the team here at Crowdys Hill as the school has recently moved in to a large, purpose-built extension.
We welcome applications from professionals at different stages of their career (no NQT), who have primary or SEN experience. Additional support and training will be provided for outstanding candidates wishing to further their specialist knowledge and understanding. We support all staff in understanding and managing the special needs of our students, and give all team members an invaluable insight and appreciation of the rewards to be gained from working in a school such as ours.
This is an ideal opportunity to make your mark on the education of pupils with SEND.
