Due to expansion, we are seeking to appoint an outstanding and committed Specialist Teacher of SEND to work in our inclusion and nurture base, The Sanctuary. The successful candidate will provide learning and teaching to KS3 and KS4 students who may have emotional, social and behavioural difficulties, and SEND.

We are looking for an enthusiastic and creative practitioner to join a dynamic, developing department to deliver learning and teaching across a broad range of subjects ensuring differentiation where necessary, and work with the SENDCO to inform the learning path of students with additional learning needs.
