The SEN Teacher/Curriculum Lead Job
One of my favourite and most inspirational clients has instructed me to recruit a fantastic class based SEN teacher for September. This position has arisen as part of a wider expansion of the school in response to a pattern of over-subscription for the last 4 years. As a result my client is seeking Secondary trained SEN teacher to take a KS3 class of pupils on a permanent contract.
As well as being a class based SEN Teacher you will also be part of the middle management team in school taking on responsibility for leading the curriculum for a subject area - the school are particularly interested in hearing from those with Maths, Science or English specialisms.
This is an inspiring and rewarding school based in Lambeth for students in Lambeth and throughout London with a statement of SEN for Social, Emotional and Behavioural Difficulties / Education, Health Care Plan for Social, Emotional and Mental Health Difficulties. The school aims for its students to leave school as confident learners and participating citizens, having gained the skills, qualifications and attributes that will enable them to take their place in wider society.
This Lambeth school is well served by public transport with rail and northern line stations nearby and bus routes into central London and there is sufficient parking on site for those who drive. The school offers all of its pupils a broad and balanced curriculum including full entitlement to the national curriculum.
Classes are no larger than 6 pupils and there is a deployment of two teaching assistants in every class to ensure that pupils get to access the support and teaching that they need. As a result children are offered more individual attention than could be afforded in a mainstream school.
The Ideal SEN Teacher/Curriculum Lead Applicant
The Headteacher is looking for a Secondary trained teacher with a proven track record of good teaching, strong curriculum knowledge and excellent interpersonal skills - some experience of middle management may be helpful though not essential.

Teachers are expected to deliver lessons that encompass the whole national curriculum but planning for key subject areas like Maths, Science, English will be supported and students have lessons with specialists in areas like PE, MFL and Music.
If you are a passionate teacher who loves a challenge, enjoys working with students who need that extra care, attention and support and has the belief that every student can meet their potential then this could be the job for you!
