Are you a QTS holder with either a desire to become an SEN Teacher or recent experience working in a UK mainstream or SEN school as an SEN Teacher?

Are you ready for a fresh challenge starting in September in the inner London Borough of Brent ?

Do you have experience teaching or a desire to teach children with autism (ASD) or severe learning difficulties (SLD)?

Would a permanent job in a truly innovative Brent SEN school appeal to you?

This posts is a permanent job teaching a mixed KS1/2 class of up to 7 pupils with autism (ASD), complex learning needs and severe learning difficulties (SLD) at a fantastic supportive school from September. Pupils will be working on low P levels using an adapted curriculum that enables them to meet their learning needs. The class will be well supported with 3-4 SEN TAs working in class to support learners in accessing the curriculum.

The School

This is a fantastic opportunity to join one of the best resourced and most forward thinking SEN schools in South London. You will join a very supportive team of highly regarded teachers at an exciting time in the life of this school. You will benefit from amazing facilities as the school has a multi-purpose, state of the art building with wonderful facilities.

The school also has a highly innovative approach to inclusive education as it is co-located with an Outstanding Primary School with a shared vision for establishing a truly inclusive community. This is only the second school of its type in London and it is pioneering a vision that is child focused, creative, inclusive and well supported by parents, the local authority and OfSTED who have consistently deemed the school outstanding.

It is highly desirable that you have the ability to inspire and develop pupils to achieve their full potential. You must have great communication skills and a positive approach to working in collaboration with multi-professional agencies to secure the best outcomes for all children. The ideal applicant will have excellent classroom management skills and an ability to effectively lead a team of support assistants. The Head has said they are particularly interested in teachers who have experience in leading in an area of the curriculum to promote teaching and learning across the school.

I am looking for:

  • Positive, enthusiastic and creative Primary teachers who are outstanding classroom practitioners and passionate about teaching children with SEND
  • Teachers who strive to provide the highest standard of teaching using appropriate and specific strategies to engage and support pupils with a wide range of learning needs
