The Job

A vacancy has arisen for an SEN Teacher to join a high achieving, friendly and successful SEN school in North West London (Brent) for immediate. The Headteacher wants to ensure there is a comprehensive handover and would like to appoint immediate therefore interviews will need to be arranged ASAP, the SEN Teacher position is likely to be there through to the end of the academic year and potentially a permanent contract will be offered. As a result the school are seeking an SEN teacher to take on one of their KS2 ASD classes.

The class consists of 8 pupils with a range of needs including down syndrome, global developmental delay, and all children diagnosed with autism. The pupils attainment levels are between P3 and P4 so experience working in either complex needs or in EYFS would be advantageous. Behaviour in class can be challenging therefore there will be two full time TAs which will be a fantastic help getting you attuned to the needs and routines of the class. There is a mixture of verbal and non verbal pupils in class so Makaton and PECs usage will occur in class to support learning.

The School

The school is for students with a wide range of complex needs. It is co-educational and caters for up to 174 children and young children aged from 4 - 11. The building comprises of ten classrooms, a therapy room, Food Technology, Art Room, a kitchen and a hall which doubles as a gym. The school has 2 minibuses which are used regularly for educational visits and school journeys.

The Headteacher is a fantastically inclusive and realistic leader who understands the demands placed on his teachers and works to ensure that the resources, training, support and infrastructure are all in place so that his staff and ultimately the pupils are set up to succeed. The school has a burgeoning reputation and there is significant interest from the LA and parents outside of the borough for school expansion, talks are ongoing surrounding additional capacity for September 2020. For this reason there is a great chance that a permanent position in school would be available in September subject to the usual processes in line with equal opportunities legislation.

The Applicant

The ideal teacher will be able to plan, deliver and assess lessons that focus on a sensory curriculum, have good behaviour and classroom management skills, have a proven track record as a "good" teacher and bring passion and commitment to their job.


This is a wonderful opportunity to join a forward thinking, supportive and successful school. Applications from overseas trained teachers with relevant experience are welcomed. Likewise applications from good or outstanding mainstream teachers are encouraged.
