An exciting opportunity has arisen for a qualified and experienced SEN Teacher to join a driven and successful team at this highly sought after SEN School!
This School is based in Islington with excellent transport links via the Northern, Picadilly and Jubilee lines.
The School caters for students aged 4-11 years with Autism. It is a well-equipped and resourced School which has been commended for the outstanding learning it provides to students who are on various levels of the spectrum. The School benefits from Sensory Rooms and Therapy Pool as well as vast outdoor space which is excellent for central London. Classes are small with only up to 6 pupils so Teachers are able to deliver specific and tailored learning to students. Children at this School have excellent behaviour and there is a strong link to parents and community which helps to ensure pupils reach their potential. A small proportion of pupils go on to mainstream Secondary Schools while others are smoothly transitioned to a partner Secondary SEN School.
The most recent Ofsted for this School rated the excellent facilities and 'highly collaborative' environment that the staff have created and work in.
The Chosen Teacher..
As an SEN Teacher, you would be using a range of Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) systems including Makaton Signing, On Body Signing, Coactive Signing, PODD Communication Books, PECS and a number of hi-tech voice output technologies (GoTalks, iPads, Proxtalker). Experience in working with these communication aids would be advantageous however the school provides an intensive induction programme to all new staff.
The successful SEN Teacher would need to be able to plan and deliver lessons differentiated to meet the needs of individual students. Children at this level would be working at P levels 1-8.
The Head Teacher is seeking a creative Teacher who is able to adapt and work as part of a team to provide the highest level of education and care to their pupils!
