Vacancies - Primary SEN Teacher

🌟 Join Our Team at our Primary SEMH Provision! 🌟

Inspiring and Innovative Primary SEN Teacher - for September 2024

An exciting opportunity to be part of a ground breaking provision in Medway

This vacancy has arisen due to an extension to the new purpose-built SEN provision in September 2023 for Primary SEMH needs on the site of the Rowans AP

Main/Upper Pay Scale plus SEN2 Allowance (£5,009)

Permanent/full time contract

The Beeches Primary Special/AP Free School is due to open in a new purpose-built building in 2026 under The Inspiring Change Trust.

Following initial identification of need for more specialist Primary SEMH provision in Medway and the creation of the Inspiring Change SEN, there is now need for this provision to increase in capacity before The Beeches comes on line.  

The Primary SEMH provision which was new for September 2023 is therefore increasing in capacity to meet need.  We are therefore actively seeking a dedicated and experienced teacher to join our team. This is your chance to be part of an innovative educational environment where every day brings new opportunities for growth and achievement.

You will use your expertise and creativity to develop tailored teaching strategies, adapting the curriculum to meet individual learning goals. Your compassion, patience, and understanding will empower pupils to flourish academically, socially, and emotionally.

We will offer you

  • A dynamic and supportive work environment, fostering collaboration and professional growth.
  • Competitive salary package with opportunities for professional development.
  • Resources and facilities to support your teaching.
  • Ongoing training and guidance to stay updated with the latest research and best practices in SEMH education.
  • The chance to make a real difference in the lives of children with special educational needs.

Desired Qualifications and Skills:

If you are ready to embark on an exciting new journey and contribute to the success of our Primary SEMH Provision, we want to hear from you! Join our dedicated team and be a part of transforming the lives of our exceptional pupils.

Successful applicants will;

  • Plan and deliver a broad curriculum based on the 6 principles of nurture and forest schools, with an unrelenting focus on the core curriculum areas notably English and Maths, Reading and SPAG.
