A large special needs (SEN) school based in Lewisham is seeking an SEN Teacher (SLD/PMLD) with some recent UK experience to join their team from September. Ideally the successful applicant will have a proven track record working in an SEN environment but the Headteacher will consider a primary or secondary trained teacher with a passion for SEN, a proven track record as a teacher and a can do attitude.
The successful applicant for this SEN Teacher will be teaching a mixed KS3 class (6 pupils) with Severe Learning Difficulties (SLD) AND Sensory Processing needs. The majority of children have speech and communication difficulties also. The class consists of 6 pupils who are all working at P levels, 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
