The school is based in the London borough of Croydon although students come from all over London and the outskirts. The class sizes in this small school are not large and are very manageable (6-8 pupils) as well as being well resourced in terms of both equipment and staffing ratios (2-3 TAs).
This SEN School boasts a number of specialist facilities on site including a multi-sensory room, soft play room, gym and playground. Situated only a short walk from the rail station and a number of bus stops making it easily accessible by public transport. This is a highly regarded special needs school with a happy environment and great links in the community.
As an SEN Teacher within the Primary phase, you would be planning and delivering lessons, differentiated to meet the individual needs of the children in a class with Key Stage 1 pupils. The curriculum you would be delivering is aimed to provide an inclusive, supportive and challenging environment for the children and encourage them to actively participate in their learning.
Due to the needs of the children, this SEN school is looking for someone with experience in working with children with similar needs. Experience in planning differentiated lessons and marking students work is essential. Each child has an individual learning plan you would be expected to write, monitor and discuss with therapists, parents and senior leadership.
This SEN school trains all staff in Team Teach in order to manage behaviour and a number of communication aids including PECS and Makaton.
The School is friendly, supportive and with a high level of respect and autonomy for teachers from the SLT, this really is somewhere where a passionate, proactive and positive SEN Teacher will thrive!
