Our school is growing and we’re excited to be opening an off-site Key Stage 3 provision for pupils with Moderate Learning Difficulties (MLD). Our KS3 provision will be based on the site of Newman Catholic College (NW10 3RN) which is approximately 1 mile from our main site on Chamberlayne Road (NW10 3NT). Our provision will be separate from Newman’s, however, our pupils will benefit from accessing specialist rooms and facilities (such as the sports hall, canteen, drama studio etc.) within their main building. We are seeking to appoint a passionate teacher who will become an integral part of our school community. We feel that the role would be well suited for someone who has experience of working with children with moderate learning difficulties (MLD), or for someone who has experience of working in a mainstream primary school. 

Interested candidates must share our motto: ‘Love, Learn, Laugh.’

We are looking for a teacher who:

  • Has two or more years of experience
  • Is a positive, enthusiastic and creative individual 
  • Is an outstanding classroom practitioner and passionate about teaching children with SEND
  • Strives to provide the highest standard of teaching using appropriate and specific strategies to engage and support pupils with a range of learning needs
  • Is committed to working in partnership with others, including therapists and families 
  • Has experience and confidence in managing behaviour positively
  • Is commitment to their own continued professional development
  • Has a sound understanding of the stages of child development 
  • Has experience or knowledge of working with children with autism and/or learning difficulties
  • Has experience of teaching children who have moderate learning difficulties (MLD) in either a mainstream or SEND setting 

We offer:

  • Supportive colleagues and a caring working environment 
  • A comprehensive induction and mentoring programme 
  • Outstanding in-service training and opportunities to develop professionally in a thriving and growing school
  • A generous PPA allocation 
  • Well-resourced vibrant classrooms with high adult to pupil ratios
  • Dedicated support from in house therapists and other specialists 
  • An innovative approach to staff well-being that supports a healthy work/life balance 
  • Support from a passionate, approachable, empathetic and ambitious senior leadership team

‘Teachers are fully committed to the school and its pupils. Leaders understand the workload that operating at this level places on staff. They are careful to seek ways that support staff in managing their workload. As a result, staff feel that leaders listen to them and that they are valued. Parents and carers told us how much they appreciate staff’s hard work to support their children.’ (Ofsted, January 2020)

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare and education of our children and expect all staff to share this commitment.  An enhanced DBS check and references will be required.
