Due to growth in demand for KS2 intake my client is seeking an additional primary SEN teacher to take a mixed Year 3/4 class of 7 pupils for the remainder of the academic year. The school have also indicated that a permanent contract would be on offer before the summer holidays for the right candidate.

The school is made up of a separate EYFS centre and 6 soon to be 7 KS1 and KS2 classes for children aged 5-11 who have statements for Special Educational Needs (SEN). The school specialises providing teaching for students with a range of complex learning needs including Autism, Global Delay, SLD and speech language and communication needs. The curriculum is based very loosely on the EYFS and KS1 national curriculum but with a heavy emphasis on developing social skills and sensory stimulation. The school offers all of its pupils a broad and balanced curriculum which has won praise by OfSTED as part of the schools recent 'Outstanding' inspection report (2016).


Located in a smart residential area benefiting from a vibrant, up market and busy local high street and a number of pretty and well-kept local parks the school is in a safe and friendly setting. As a specialist school it is very well equipped and has great on site facilities including sensory rooms/playground, soft play area, on site therapy rooms (speech and language, occupational and physio) and a hydrotherapy pool. The school is well served by public transport with easy links into much of north, east and central London. There is parking on site for those who drive although it is allocated on a first come first served basis. That said parking in the local residential streets is free and can be secured easily provided you are near school by 08:30.

Classes are no larger than 9 pupils and there is a deployment of two teaching assistants in every class to ensure that pupils get to access the support and teaching that they need. As a result children are offered more individual attention than could be afforded in a mainstream school.

The school has a very specific ethos in terms of behaviour management and they use Team Teach techniques for de-escalation and restraint will be used as a last resort. The school has an amazing training and CPD scheme in place to support teaching and TA staff. For this reason the head is open to appointing either an experienced SEN teacher or a primary trained teacher from a mainstream background who has a proven track record for good/outstanding recent UK teaching. Applicants must be open to new challenges, willing to take instruction from SLT, open to suggestions from the TAs (they know the children really well and have great specialist skill sets) and receptive to the use of pioneering techniques.

Apply today for immediate interviews subject to DBS clearance and sufficient referencing.
