SEN Teachers in Southwark

Southwark, London
Tradewind are recruiting and I would love to hear from you. Exciting
* SLD/PMLD Special Needs Teacher
*SEN School
* London Borough of Southwark
* Starting Sept 2020 * Pay depending on experience

A large special needs (SEN) school based in Southwark, are seeking a special needs teacher with some recent SLD/PMLD experience to join their team from September 2020.

Ideally the successful applicant will have a proven track record working in an SEN environment but the Headteacher will consider a primary trained teacher with a passion for SEN, a proven track record as a teacher and a can do attitude. The successful applicant will be teaching a KS1 class (6 pupils) with Severe Learning Difficulties (SLD.) The majority of the children have additional medical and sensory needs as well as physical impairments.

The class has 6 pupils who are all working at P levels, experience of the Early Years curriculum would be advantageous, though not essential. Much of the work you would be doing will be based on the Early Years curriculum with a particular focus on developing social and communication skills. You will be working alongside two really friendly learning support assistants (LSAs) who know the children and the school procedures and will help you get up to speed quickly. Some experience of PECS and makaton would be advantageous but training is available. The successful candidate will be flexible, with the ability to use their own initiative where required.

Experience working in an SEN school or with SLD/PMLD children would be an advantage but the school are clear that they want a good teacher first and foremost - excellent training is available. They would be more than happy to support an excellent practitioner with passion for SEN but limited SEN experience. Progress with these pupils can be slow when compared to their contemporaries so patience, a caring nature, passion for the job and strong self belief will be essential.
