New Town Primary School Nurturing Brilliance, Inspiring Ambition

Class Teacher - SEN

Class Teacher - SEN

MPS or UPS welcomed + SEN allowance payment.  OTS Required. Full-time position.

 Required for September 2024

New Town is delighted to be expanding its specialist provision and formally establishing an Alternative Resourced Provision (ARP) from September 2024. We are looking to expand its happy and experienced existing team by appointing a class teacher dedicated to the ARP. This will be an exciting new role in our ever-evolving school family.

This class will cater for up to eight children with a primary need of social communication. It will continue to operate in its existing self-contained space within the school with its own beautiful garden area, and dedicated colleagues who care deeply about the children they serve.

The successful candidate may be someone with significant experience and qualifications in special education, or somebody with less experience, the eagerness to learn and a strong desire to work with children with complex additional needs and physical communication. Whatever your experience, we will be looking for enthusiasm and a dedication to learn and lead our fantastic children and support staff in the ARP with the guidance of our ambitious SENCO.

This role is crucial in supporting our aspirational and ‘good’ school to continue to improve, as we look to always provide the very best for our diverse children and families. Building great relationships, a belief in every child’s potential and a strong commitment to providing great teaching and learning opportunities across our school are a must.

Joining our school family means you’ll need to be: 

  • An enthusiastic member of staff who is forward thinking and able to adapt quickly and easily
  • Someone who puts children at the heart of all you do and a positive role model.
  • Dynamic and fast-paced, finding effective solutions at every turn whilst considering others’ points of view
  • A team player with the ability to work well under their own initiative and as part of a wider school family
  • A kind and caring person, enjoying the bustling life of our diverse school family and always looking to recognise our polite and kind children
  • An excellent English speaker and writer
  • Efficient and effective in your working practices and able to prioritise well
  • Tolerant, resilient and compassionate

In return, our team can offer: 

  • An optimistic and close-knit senior leadership team with a track record of improving schools.
  • A firmly established ethos of caring for one another in our school family.
  • A strong middle and senior leadership team who will guide and nurture you through your role.
  • A commitment to professional development, and a belief in driving improvement through looking outwards to the world beyond our walls.
  • The opportunity to work with a wider professional team of unique schools, all brilliantly supported by a Trust who strongly value the individual school’s character, ethos and approaches.
  • A beautiful and spacious school environment filled with light, life and love.
  • Secure car parking and a staff wellbeing package.
