Required 1st September or 1st January to cover maternity leave until 31st August 2023.

Mill Lane Primary School are seeking a highly motivated, enthusiastic and inspirational Teacher who will play a key role in our amazing small nurture class.

We want a Teacher who can work at pace to turn ‘can’t do’ into ‘want to’ and is motivated by working with young people with complex needs. You will be confident in your belief that every child can achieve and reach their potential. The ideal candidate will enjoy working with children in a calm and engaging demeanour, whilst being resilient and using innovative styles of teaching.

We want to hear from people with drive and a willingness to go the ‘extra mile’ to improve the lives of the young people in our care. Whilst previous experience of working in a SEN environment would be desirable, excellent teaching skills and the right motivation, personal qualities, levels of resilience and a willingness to learn, are just as important.

What will I be doing?
• Establishing and maintaining good working relationships in order to promote the development and effective delivery of the school curriculum to maximise our young people’s achievement.
• Teaching students according to their developmental level and acknowledging that every lesson counts.
• Creating a well-ordered and secure environment that will ensure the educational well-being of individual children within the group.
• Support students in a positive manner, through an attachment friendly ethos that fosters warmth as well as sets high boundaries so that all can achieve their potential, following agreed and consistent strategies alongside school in-house professionals and therapeutic colleagues.
• Ensuring careful and ongoing assessment of the students learning to inform further planning and next steps.
• Ensuring that tasks and activities are matched to the ability of the student - allowing them to make progress at the right pace and level.
• Working with school leaders to complete and teach individual pupil plans where students have specific needs.
• Liaising effectively with parents and a wide range of professionals.
• Ensuring that EHCP provision is implemented effectively for each individual child.

What do I need?
• Must have appropriate teaching Qualification (QTS or QTLS)
• Resilience
• Be an outstanding practitioner
• Understanding of the curriculum in order for successful planning and delivery

Why work for us?
