Blaise High School is looking for an experienced SEN teacher to join our committed and experienced SEN team for a maternity cover contract. Wherever possible, we aim to teach students in mainstream classes. This is reinforced by three different provisions for our students with more acute learning difficulties or some of our more vulnerable students. These students will often need extra support, a different learning environment for some of all of the time, or a more personalised curriculum.
We have two Student Inclusion Classes (PIP), each with 21 spaces. PIP Berwick works with young people with Downs Syndrome, and children with complex additional needs. PIP Canford works with children on the ASD spectrum and Speech, Language and Communication needs.
Blaise High School is a disruption free environment which ensures that teachers can teach and students can learn every second of every lesson, day by day. We are committed to our values of Ambition, Inclusion and Collaboration. This means we expect the very best outcomes for all our students and we get there by working with each other and never against each other. We show our ambition in our incredibly high standards from uniform, to our world class curriculum and reading programme. We are a school rich in diversity and we celebrate this daily, all of us believe that all of us can be successful no matter our background or starting point. We collaborate as a teaching team to ensure we are consistently able to improve our practice, as a school to celebrate and have fun together and as an entire community to be sure all of our students are ready to be successful every day.
We are looking for a teacher who believes whole heartedly in those values of ambition, inclusion and collaboration to join us. If you think this could be you then please get in touch. Every day is an open day at Blaise High School so you are welcome to arrange a visit to see our values in action and meet our wonderful team.
