Horizon Teachers are working with a mainstream Primary School in Tower Hamlets who are seeking an experienced, Primary trained Teacher to join their team. This is an excellent opportunity for teachers with mainstream experience seeking to make the transition to SEN teaching.

The school is part of an Academy and they received a rating of "Outstanding" in their previous OFSTED inspection. The inspectors found that "The Executive Principal and Principal, supported by a dedicated team of senior leaders, engender a strong team spirit within the academy" so applicants can expect a tight-knit and supportive environment in which to work. They have a specialist Deaf Support Base which provides places for children from Year 1 to 6 who are Deaf or Hearing Impaired. The base has designated classrooms with resources to allow children with such needs to access an adapted Primary curriculum and equip them with the skills to learn.

The Position
The Primary Teacher will be teaching classes consisting of pupils who are Deaf or Hearing Impaired, in groups of 5 or less. There will be Teaching Assistants in the class who have BSL qualifications so the Teacher does not need to be able to sign, although experience of this would be ideal. The Teacher will be responsible for planning lessons for pupils based around the national curriculum, which are tailored to their individual needs. Some pupils will have a mixed timetable where they spend part of their time in the mainstream classes and part of their time in the base, whereas those with more severe needs will spend all their time in the base. The Primary Teacher will be supported with the planning of lessons by the Head of the provision (who is also a qualified and highly experienced Teacher of the Deaf).

Essential skills and experience
  • Qualified Teacher Status (QTS)
  • Minimum 1 year teaching experience
  • Experience teaching children with SEND in mainstream or SEN schools
  • Ideally some experience supporting children who are Hearing Impaired or Deaf
  • Good knowledge of the Key Stage 1 and 2 curriculum
  • Passionate about teaching vulnerable children

The successful applicant will be invited to apply for a permanent position if they work well within the school. This is an excellent opportunity for teachers seeking a consistent position in a lovely school where they can really make a difference in the lives of vulnerable children.

Please apply now to be considered for this position! The school will be looking to trial suitable Teachers in the next few weeks and appoint before the Christmas holidays.
