This is a permanent, full-time post, and we are seeking to appoint for an Autumn Term 2019 start if possible.
This post would suit a teacher with a strongly evidenced interest in SEN.

We are an extremely active, lively and welcoming school, committed to giving all our children and young people the best possible opportunity to engage in learning, achieve, make progress, and maximise their communication, choice-making and independence skills. We have high expectations of the children, young people and ourselves, and we appreciate and celebrate our achievements fully.
The school’s 3 OFSTED inspections (February 2018, March 2014, and February 2011) have all judged the school to be Outstanding. The school is a strategic partner in the Redhill Teaching School Alliance, and holds a number of awards and accreditations, including Basic Skills Quality Mark, Arts Mark Gold, Career Mark, the International School Award and Healthy Schools Award; we are also a Global Learning Programme Expert Centre.
We are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic, proactive and hard-working teacher who is an outstanding classroom practitioner and is committed to improving outcomes for children and young people with SEN and/or disability and their families.

• Committed to developing personalised learning, curriculum and assessment for children and young people with SLD/PMLD/ASD/CLDD, using a wide range of teaching strategies, resources and assessment tools.
• Committed to developing subject leadership within an SEN setting

• Highly motivated and flexible, and committed to developing own, and others’, CPD.
• Creative, innovative and quick to learn.
• Able to demonstrate excellent initiative and organisational skills.
• Keen to lead, and to join, a committed, hard-working and supportive team.
• Committed to partnership working, both within school and with outside agencies.
• Passionate about his/her role in improving outcomes and life chances for children and young people with disabilities.
An understanding of child development and experience of, or strongly evidenced interest in, teaching children and young people with SEN is essential - further training in aspects of Special Education will be provided, as appropriate. The school is organised in to 3 Phases (EYFS/KS1, 7-14, and 14-19), has particular strengths in the Arts, Sport, PSHE and WREL, and a particular commitment to extra-curricular enrichment, including residential visits.
