This successful Primary SEN School is seeking to appoint an excellent and experienced SEN Teacher for a September start.
You will teach a class of students with various Autism and SLD. The school benefits from excellent staffing ratios, small class sizes and a highly personalised approach to learning. Due to the success of the School, they are expanding the team and this is an exciting time to join. The class consists of no more than 7 pupils from KS2 and the needs are complex. Behaviour can on occasions be challenging but to combat this the class is supported by 3 full time TAs and there are clear strategies in place for each of the children. Many of the students will be non-verbal so alternative communication systems are used such as PECs. You will deliver a highly adapted curriculum, sensory based, to develop students basic skills in Maths and English and Fine Motor Skills.
This Islington School offers state of the art purpose built facilities accessible to all students including those with visual impairment. These include:
- Hydrotherapy pool with sensory environment.
- Specially adapted and equipped science, art, music and technology rooms.
- Soft Play room.
- A Sensory room.
- Specially equipped playground.
- Two minibuses for use in the community.
