Class Teacher - English and KS3 Maths

Required ASAP

We are looking for an outstanding Class Teacher to join our fantastic team at Presfield High School.

About Us

Presfield High School is an oversubscribed specialist provision which caters for students with a primary diagnosis of Autism from age 11 through to 19. All our 123 students have an EHCP which identifies Autism as their primary need. Students have access to a range of qualifications depending on their ability including GCSE’s. We also support our students' social understanding and understanding of self by providing a significant life skill curriculum time. Our class sizes are less than 10 and students are supported by two teaching assistants enabling a highly differentiated and bespoke teaching approach to be fostered.

We are advocates of Dr Stephen Shore’s belief that “If you have met one child with autism you have met ONE child with autism”. This underpins all that we do and we are committed to challenging the stereotypical views that are often associated with Autism. 

We passionately believe in empowering our students to advocate for themselves in order to access and contribute meaningfully to society.  This is demonstrated in our diverse curriculum that promotes an aspirational academic and social pathway increasing employability. 

Visits to the school are welcome and highly recommended.

We are looking for someone who can teach English from KS3 through to GCSE level, and the ability to teach KS3 Maths would be advantageous.  We encourage a creative approach to teaching students according to their educational needs, ensuring delivery of the school curriculum in a way that maximises children’s achievement both socially and academically.  You must be willing to share our vision of changing lives and shaping futures by empowering vulnerable young people, to be happy and valued by society.

Your work will be challenging and rewarding in equal measure and you will be working in a school where we maintain a strong safeguarding culture, where pupils are listened to, respected and involved in as many decisions as possible.

Whilst previous experience of working in an SEN environment would be desirable, excellent teaching skills and the right motivation, personal qualities and levels of resilience are just as important. Therefore we welcome applications of all ranges of experience including ECT.

We are committed to promoting the safeguarding and welfare of children and Young People and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.  All successful applicants will be requested to undertake an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service check.

Due to the nature of the work involved, this post is "exempt" from the provision of the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974.
