Special Needs Teacher

MPR (+ 1 SEN point depending on experience, NQTs welcome to apply)   

 ‘The school’s work to promote pupils’ personal development and welfare is outstanding. The school does not have a behaviour policy but instead has a relationship policy, based on the restorative approach. As a consequence, the strong bonds which both adults and pupils form are the cornerstone to the school’s ethos and culture’

‘The headteacher’s inclusive stance leads to a harmonious and cohesive ethos which permeates all levels of the school’s work and relationships. As a result, all pupils are integrated well into the life of the school.’  Ofsted January 2016
