The idea SEN teaching is someone who is adaptable and willing to work across the ability range within the school.

To be considered for this role, you will need to be able to demonstrate a desire for improving pupil outcomes, as well as some ASD knowledge (through experience and/or practice). The right candidate will have a passion for SEN teaching and the skills to engage, inspire and motivate students.

By joining this lovely school you will:
Have an opportunity to make a difference to the lives of pupils and to the school;
Meet and work with wonderful, hardworking pupils and colleagues;
Have increased opportunities for continued professional development.

Your working week will be Monday- Friday
