Job Start Date: Easter 2022 or before

Oscott Manor School is looking to appoint a skilled and flexible professional to join our team as Class Teacher. Our school is a community special school for pupils aged between 11 and 19 with autism as their primary diagnosis.

All our pupils have an education, health and care plan and may have persistent difficulties with social interaction, social communication or understanding emotions. Such differences can significantly impact on their access to the curriculum.

Our class teachers typically teach a full range of curriculum subjects to one class of approximately twelve pupils in a Key Stage class with the support of two teaching assistants. We are currently piloting the use of subject specialists with some groups of pupils and will consider applications from those wishing to teach one subject or those wishing to teach a

range of subjects.

We are looking for a qualified teacher who can carefully adapt their teaching to ensure challenge and enable progress and who is relentless in their pursuit of positive outcomes for young people. This post could be based in Key Stage 3, 4 or 5 and applications are welcomed from teachers with any subject specialism and with primary, secondary or special school experience. There are significant pastoral responsibilities attached to this role and all candidates should ensure they have read the job description in full before applying.

At Oscott Manor School, the experience of the child or young person is paramount, and we expect all actions and decisions to reflect this. We are proud to be a Unicef Rights Respecting School on a journey to gold.

This is an exciting time as the school will be relocating to new, purpose-built premises with excellent facilities in January 2022. The new school is located on Reservoir Road in Erdington and has good transport links.
