job description

Are you an experienced teacher who wants to help pupils who are eager to learn to progress in their education?

Do you want to help to create a positive learning environment for pupils to reach their full potential?

We are looking for enthusiastic and passionate teachers to work in a primary school with pupils who have SEN. The primary school is based in the area of Manchester and you will be working with pupils between the ages of 3 and 11. The school supports pupils with autistic spectrum conditions (ASC), profound multiple learning difficulties (PMLD), severe learning difficulties (SLD), general learning difficulties (GLD) and other associated difficulties including behaviour. They aim to meet the unique and individual needs of each pupil in all educational activities that they deliver including formal and informal learning and ensure that the National Curriculum is appropriately adapted to meet the needs and abilities of the pupils.

The schools ethos is aiming to provide all of their pupils with the opportunity to learn and make progress in a supportive, safe and nurturing environment. They want their pupils to enjoy learning and feel proud of their achievements as they celebrate each step with them. They aim to help their pupils develop all the key skills and knowledge that they need as building blocks for future learning as they grow towards being young adults. The school focuses on empowering their pupils to develop their independence as much as possible.

The school values:

* They believe that every individual needs a voice that can be heard and understood by others
* Rule of law. They believe in helping pupils to make decisions and choices that are acceptable to the school community and society at large. Pupils are helped to learn to manage their behaviour and take responsibility for their actions
* Individual liberty. Some pupils will be able to take responsibility for particular roles in school and to understand that with certain rights comes a level of responsibility. By providing pupils with the opportunity to make choices during the school day they attempt to demonstrate that everyone has rights and that this includes the right to say 'Yes' or 'No'
* Mutual respect and tolerance. Each individual is respected and valued equally without regard to ability, gender, faith, heritage or race. Cultural appreciation and development forms part of the curriculum to broaden their experience and awareness of other cultures and beliefs

There are many benefits of this role, including:

* Working in a school rated good by Ofsted
* Working in a happy, caring and helpful environment
* The opportunity to develop your skills as an SEN teacher with a supportive staff team
* Great transport links

The responsibilities of the role are:

* Providing fun and informative lessons
* Devising engaging lesson plans
* Creating a positive learning environment
* Monitor and review pupils' progress

The requirements for the role are:

* Experience as a teacher
* A DBS on the update service
* Be able to differentiate lesson plans
* Be a resilient and hardworking individual

You will be working in an excellent school teaching several areas of the curriculum. And applications from teachers who have an interest or experience in working with pupils with complex/additional needs are welcome. If you want to progress your teaching career and you are interested in this role, contact Sophie on 0161 200 1904 or email at
