(Plus 1 SEN point minimum and the second point on demonstration of expertise in leading staff to meet the needs of pupils with MLD, ASC and associated needs including SEMH)

• successfully teaching literacy and wider English to pupils learning below Year 4 expectations

Our school is fully committed to the self-evaluation process leading to continuing professional development.

This post could suit a Primary School practitioner (although we are a school for secondary aged pupils) looking for a new challenge, or someone with Special School experience.

Samuel Laycock School is committed to the highest standards of child protection and safeguarding of our students and the successful candidate will be required to complete an enhanced DBS check- see our website for our policy.
