Location:          Mountfield Heath School, Robertsbridge, East Sussex.

Salary:             Up to £35,000 dependent on experience

Hours:              Full Time, Monday to Friday

Contract:          Permanent, Term Time only

 

We are looking for an inspirational Teacher to play a vital role in a truly unique and exciting opportunity, to shape a growing school and help foster a truly exceptional learning environment.  Mountfield Heath School is an independent special educational needs provision for 32 pupils aged 5-12, located in Robertsbridge, East Sussex.

As a teacher, this is a truly unique and exciting opportunity to help shape a growing school, and help create a truly exceptional learning environment, to support and develop our pupils. You will have the opportunity to create and tailor the curriculum as well as access high quality CPD to help pursue your own personal goals.

About the Role:

Mountfield Heath School caters for children aged 5 -12 and aims to achieve an occupancy of 32 pupils.  You will be responsible for planning and delivering subjects across the curriculum. Differentiation and individualised learning strategies are vital skills required to meet the needs of all our pupils who will have had varying degrees of success in their educational lives. Our aim is to change young people’s lives and through the use of accredited courses, we will always provide our pupils with the best possible opportunities to succeed beyond Mountfield Heath School.

About the Group:

We are part of Acorn Education and Care and can promise you plenty of challenges, and a rich variety of opportunities to develop your career.

We provide Education and Care across a number of schools and residential homes nationally. Our specialist SEN provision, coupled with our expertise within residential care means we offer thousands of vulnerable children across the UK a holistic, wraparound care, residential and education service, empowering them with everything they need to flourish. It is by no accident that 94% of our schools and homes are rated as 'Outstanding' or 'Good'.

We welcome staff who share our commitment to help children experience better days and better lives. Through ongoing development and training, we ensure our staff are well prepared for their jobs and given every opportunity to extend their skills.

Who we are looking for?

Just as important as academic achievement is the social & emotional development of our pupils.  We want our pupils to be successful citizens and positively contribute to their local communities, it will therefore be imperative to provide opportunities to advance these skills. Along with this, the use of personalised curriculums and positive reinforcement will underpin your everyday practice.  Early Years’ experience would be preferential.

This can be a challenging environment and therefore, determination and resiliency are key characteristics for the post. We are seeking an experienced teacher with an understanding of SEMH and ASD, allowing the successful candidate to immediately form positive relationships and adapt to the needs of the pupils. However, we invest heavily in teacher development and want staff who endeavour to achieve more.

Why work for us?

A few reasons we think it is a great place to work:

  • Continuous professional development and training for a clear career path
  • Pension
  • Opportunity to enrich the lives of young people and make a positive difference
  • Be part of a fantastic team who work hard together and support each other
  • No two days are ever the same.

Whilst previous experience of working in a SEN environment would be desirable, excellent support skills and the right motivation, personal qualities and levels of resilience are just as important.

If you are passionate about this truly unique and rewarding sector and have the energy, drive and desire to motivate our pupils and ensure they achieve the best possible outcomes, then we welcome your application.
