THE SEN TEACHER JOB

The Headteacher looking for a creative and vibrant SEN Teacher to join their team from September. They are seeking to appoint an SEN teacher who is able to demonstrate both excellent classroom practice and an up-to-date understanding of the latest developments in special needs best practise. The contract is for an SEN Teacher for a term on timesheets initially with a permanent contract starting September 2021.
You will be teaching a mixed Key Stage 2 class of 8 pupils who all have a diagnosis of Autism. The pupils are lower functioning and have significant cognitive difficulties and delays compared to their peers. As a result they have limited speech language and communication skills and as a result communication in class will be conducted with a mix of verbal communication, PECS cards and Makaton signing. Experience of PECS and Makaton would be advantageous although not essential as these systems are very simple and can easily be picked up.
The class is a well behaved and friendly group, they have been together for a number of years and are superbly supported by a team of 3 TAs. The TA team have been in place since September with a new addition joining two more experienced staff one who has been with the class for over two years and the other who has been with them since September 2019. The team has a lot of knowledge of the students and will provide lots of support and insight into the group. They are also a humble and friendly team who are open to new ideas and are looking forward to a working with a new teacher.
