Primary Teacher

  • South East London (Lambeth)
  • EYFS - KS2 SEMH Primary Teacher
  • Senior Teacher
  • Starting January 2021
  • Permanent Contract
  • Must have UK teaching experience and strong behaviour management
  • Must have QTS or QTLS
  • Team Teach would be an advantage

Are you a trained mainstream primary teacher looking to take a step into Special Educational Needs?

Do you have strong behaviour management skills and are keen in working with students who come from difficult homes and display limited social and emotional awareness and challenging behaviour?

Are you interested in working with smaller sized classrooms of around 4-6 students?

Do you want a job that is both challenging and highly rewarding?

If so then this Lambeth SEMH Primary Teacher role is for you!

For this SEMH Primary Teaching post you will be required to teach class sizes of 6-8 and all students that have been temporarily or permanently excluded from mainstream education. Generally the students will have very challenging behaviour and you will face different challenges throughout the day. On the other hand this primary teacher role is very rewarding and can offer progression for somebody looking for a step up in their career. You must have very strong behaviour management skills as all students present varied levels of challenging behaviour.

This is a really good Lambeth Alternative Provision Centre that is keen to recruit a permanent member of staff to join their highly successful and inspirational primary team staring in January. You would be working on the primary site of an excellent group of schools that use a therapeutic and holistic approach to the needs of their children. This role could bring additional responsibilities in terms of learning and assessment as well as supporting other teachers. Typically, the senior teachers will start on 36k but there is scope for higher salaries for more experienced staff and the right candidate may have a good chance of joining the leadership team. Ideally they would like someone with a primary background and I thought you'd be a good fit.

This Lambeth independent therapeutic special school provides innovative, specialist provision for pupils with social, emotional and mental health difficulties. it is widely acknowledged as leading the way in providing outstanding specialist provision for some of London's most complex children.

As a multi site all-through provision for pupils aged 5-16, they provide genuinely personalised learning and therapy programmes within safe, stimulating and nurturing environments. they have high expectations, a culture of ambition and a therapeutic, values-centred approach. As a result, they rapidly develop pupil's emotional well-being, willingness to learn, social and life skills, behaviour for learning and academic progress.
