Small enough to care, big enough to make a positive impact

As a middle and high school in south east Northumberland with good standards of teaching and behaviour and a strong commitment to improvement, we believe passionately that every student should be enabled to succeed in all aspects of school life. Building on our recent ‘Good’ rating by Ofsted, we continue to strive for further improvements.

An exciting opportunity has arisen for an enthusiastic and talented Teacher to join the schools to focus on our SEND provision as lead teacher within the ARP for Whytrig Middle School and Astley Community High School and SENCo for Astley Community High School. With a strong sense of purpose and drive to improve student attainment and progress, you will join a small but committed team and will be supported to further develop your career and professional practice.

The schools have a well founded reputation for their inclusivity and support for SEND pupils and we want to build on that. The Local Authority has identified us as a place to establish the first of the new ASD ARPs. We need a highly motivated individual who can enable our students to exceed their expectations and have high aspirations for their futures.

This post is to work across both Astley Community High School and Whytrig Middle School, as Lead teacher in the ARP; you will also be SENCo for Astley Community High School on a day to day basis.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. It is essential that all staff and volunteers share this commitment. An enhanced criminal records check from the Disclosure and Barring Service is required for all posts.

Interested in applying? A completed application form and criminal records declaration form must be submitted by 12 noon on Sunday 7th March 2021 by e-mail to vacancies@svf.org.uk

Interviews will be held as soon as we can safely organise when school re-opens.
