A well-resourced Outstanding (OfSTED) SEN school in Southwark in South London that caters for Severe Learning Difficulties (SLD), ASD, and Profound & Multiple Learning Difficulties (PMLD) Primary children is seeking to appoint a Primary SEN Teacher as soon as possible on a 1 year contract. The school has excellent transport links being 5 minutes from Bermondsey Street and on trains running to London Bridge. The school has strong links with the local community, including training connections with a number of mainstream schools and sharing resources with a top Secondary SEN school. This allows it to enrich its curriculum by welcoming groups and individuals to the school and taking children on an education trip each term and a biannual trip to the seaside.
The class itself consists of 5 pupils (Year2), which is one of the higher achieving groups within the school - mainly ASD with some SLD and complex medical needs. In class you will have the support of three to four outstanding, friendly, and hardworking TAs full-time in class. Classes are well-resourced and staff are encouraged to immerse themselves in the positive and highly rewarding ethos fostered by the bright, energetic and youthful staff and Senior Leadership Team.
The appointed SEN Teacher will therefore have an incredibly supportive and well-equipped team of TAs, as well a professional and well-experienced team committed to providing individualised learning, support and opportunities for pupils with SLD/ASD/PMLD.
The school has an excellent reputation in training for communication strategies, writing programmes, and Makaton courses for its staff, as well as Team-Teach, TEACCH and First Aid. All teaching and support staff are trained in Makaton and PECS symbols are also used creatively to develop communication; experience in these areas is therefore essential. However, the school allows for plenty of opportunity for professional and personal development.
