Job Description

Our class of 10 amazing primary pupils with autism are looking for a new teacher. Could you be the one? They are keen to find someone who likes to have fun and knows how to support them to learn regardless of their needs. You will be able to be flexible in your approach as they need individualised learning and you will be able to adapt the curriculum to meet their ASD needs. Our pupils may have some challenging behaviours, but their new teacher will work to ensure they are able to communicate their needs and so reduce any anxiety. In return, our pupils will give you many opportunities to smile and laugh. They will make you proud to be their teacher and will be so grateful for every day you are there to move them forward in their childhood experiences.

The role is to start as soon as possible and ideally you will have had some experience of working with pupils with ASD. Some knowledge of ASD specific techniques and supports would be beneficial, although opportunities to develop new skills is always on offer through CPD. You will also be supported in making learning exciting by wonderfully helpful, qualified teaching assistants.

So, if you’re able to meet some (if not all) those below our pupils would love for you to come for a walk around the school and apply to be their teacher:

I have QTS and ASD experience
I have a flexible ‘can do’ attitude
I love to have fun
I have experience of working with pupils with SEN
I enjoy working as part of a team
I am patient and understand how to help when presented with challenging behaviours
I love to laugh and smile
I like to learn new things
I am able to work full time and provide high quality learning opportunities
I’m good at effectively communicating to pupils, parents/ carers, staff and professionals
I love to make happy memories for young people

Our school is modern and offers onsite parking. We have lots of well facilitated rooms and can’t wait to share these with you when you come for a look round.

Our pupils are super excited to meet their new teacher, let’s hope it’s you!

All safeguarding checks will be carried out in accordance with keeping children safe in education.
