Job Details

Queensmead House School is a co-educational, independent specialist day school, providing high quality education from Key Stage 1 to Key Stage 4. Based in Windsor, the school meets the needs of a diverse group of pupils with complex educational needs, communication difficulties and challenging behaviours.

The positive impact you can have early on to a young person's life is most likely the reason you got into Primary Education in the first place. Here, that impact will be greater than you could have ever imagined.

The needs of the pupils vary depending on class however all pupils have varying levels of Autism, SEMH, EBD and ADHD.

THE ROLE

Raising literacy and creating positive behaviour strategies will be your focus here, right across both the primary and secondary schools - and not simply within English lessons themselves. As an English Teacher, you won't just be teaching our young people to read and write, you'll be helping them learn to communicate better, while steering their moral and emotional development through engagement with the written word. This kind of learning doesn't end when the bell goes - it's something they'll carry with them from lesson to lesson and throughout life. Keeping subjects relevant and making them matter to our young people is a big part of the Witherslack Group philosophy. By joining the English department, you'll be putting your passion into practice and using your own personal flair to make sure we reflect this idea in everything we do.

You'll be working with young people until the end of Key Stage 4. It will be challenging and rewarding in equal measure, but whether you've given a particularly inspiring lesson or helped a pupil with a presentation or exam arrangements, you can expect to take home a sense of having done something amazing every single day. As all teachers know, some of those days may be harder than others but, at Witherslack Group, you're never alone. You'll work as part of a collaborative team, not just with other teachers across the school and Group but with our in-house psychologists, family liaison officers and therapy professionals. All pulling together to create the best possible outcomes for our pupils.

THE PERSON

We're looking for an English Teacher with a vision. The kind of person who wants to make a difference and knows the pathway that will allow them to do so. Someone who also wants to be part of the conversation when it comes to group decisions on how we, as a Group, best meet the needs of each child with regard to training, support and annual reviews.

Aware of the standards that Ofsted look out for and always conscious to exceed them, you'll be the kind of teacher who is never anything but engaged and engaging. What's more, you'll be excited by the prospect of our small class sizes of 8 pupils or less, (with at least one Teaching Assistant) and will seize upon this as an opportunity to tailor learning to individuals and build stronger, more insightful teacher/pupil relationships. Empathetic and passionate, you'll understand that our pupils' journeys aren't necessarily linear. If you haven't worked in SEN before, but are enthusiastic and motivated to make the move, we'll give you all the additional training and support you require.
