I am seeking to appoint an exceptional primary special needs teacher to join an outstanding primary school for children with Social Emotional and Mental Health issues. The Headteacher has stressed that behaviour is very good on the whole as their whole school behaviour management policy is long established and highly effective at de-escalating situations, minimising low level disruption, encouraging pupils to take responsibility and control of their behaviour and engaging parental support. The Headteacher also was very clear that academic outcomes and high quality teaching are the most important features that they are seeking in a potential applicant for this job.

Ethos:

Staff have worked hard to create a supportive environment that is both accepting and challenging. Through a combination of effective teaching, family involvement and behaviour management strategies, they seek to provide opportunities and the resources that will allow the children to prosper and thrive and successfully interact in the school, the home and the community.

The aim is to -

* Promote the highest possible achievement for all pupils, irrespective of ability, cultural background, ethnic origin or disability.

* Promote pupils' spiritual, cultural, intellectual and physical development.

* Prepare pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life in a changing world.

* Develop strategies for children to understand and manage their own emotions and behaviour appropriately.

Throughout the students time at the school they will strive to;

* Help each child identify and acknowledge the social, emotional or behavioural problems which they face and to teach them skills for coping with them in a positive way.

* Instil socially acceptable patterns of behaviour.

* Provide a secure, stable and caring environment in which every child can grow and develop as an individual.

* Improve each child's view of him/herself, building on their self-esteem and confidence, both in and out of the school environment.

* Develop good home/school relationships and positive supportive attitudes towards the child and family.

* Enable children with all abilities and needs to develop a range of learning skills in all aspects of the National Curriculum.

Having visited the school and having compared it to many similar schools I can honestly say that this is a highly effective, inspirational, fun and friendly school where pupils are warm, receptive and inquisitive and where staff genuinely seem to enjoy their jobs.

If this sounds like the job and school for you please apply today. Interviews to be conducted ASAP including over the holidays for outstanding practitioners
