SEN Teacher

  • SEN Teacher (SLD)
  • 1 Year Maternity Contract
  • Ealing, West London
  • Full time
  • Starting Sept
  • Pay depending on experience

The SEN Teacher Vacancy

A large special needs (SEN) school based in Ealing, West London is seeking an SEN Teacher with some recent SLD experience to join their team from September on a 1 year maternity contract. Ideally the successful applicant will have a proven track record working in an SEN environment but the Headteacher will consider a primary trained teacher with a passion for SEN, a proven track record as a teacher and a can do attitude.

This role is based at an exceptional SEN school run by Ealing Local Authority for children aged 4-11 years old and cater for children with complex learning difficulties including autism and other sensory impairments. Some children have challenging behaviours. The school has been deemed Outstanding in each of its last 4 OfSTED inspections and children at Castlebar make great progress, especially in the core areas of communication, independence and socialisation. They are remarkable children and deserve the very best we can give.

SEN Teacher Role

The successful applicant to this special needs teacher job will be teaching a mixed KS1/2 class (6 pupils) with Autism and Severe Learning Difficulties (SLD.) The majority of the children have additional sensory needs as well as physical impairments and come from all over Ealing and the rest of West London.

The class consists of 6 pupils who are all working at P level 3-6 equivalency, as a result experience of the EYFS curriculum would be advantageous, though not essential. Much of the work you would be doing will be based loosely on the Early Years curriculum with a particular focus on developing social and communication skills. You will be working alongside two really friendly learning support assistants (LSAs) who know the children and the school procedures and will help you get up to speed quickly. Some experience of PECS and Makaton would be advantageous but training is available

The SEN Teacher Candidate

The successful SEN Teacher candidate will be flexible, with the ability to use their own initiative where required. Experience working in an SEN school or with SLD children would be an advantage but the school are clear that they want a good teacher first and foremost - excellent training is available. They would be more than happy to support an excellent practitioner with passion for SEN but limited SEN experience.

Progress with these pupils can be slow when compared to their contemporaries so patience, a caring nature, passion for the job and strong self belief will be essential.
