Holly Lodge School are recruiting for a Teacher of SEN. We are a comprehensive 11-19 school and sixth form serving the diverse community of Smethwick, West Midlands. Our core values are Ambition, Opportunity and Community: we believe that every child, regardless of their background or starting point, is entitled to a world-class education in the best that has been thought, said and made, and that they should be equipped for joining the great conversations of humankind, shaping the future and living truly rewarding and meaningful lives. We believe in the power of expertly developed, subject specialist curriculum, alongside research-informed teaching approaches, high expectations for behaviour, and excellent pastoral care in achieving this vision. We are ambitious for the experience of our staff as well as our students: in terms of well-being, professional development and career progression. We believe that the key to staff wellbeing is sensible workload and a positive professional culture, and we place these at the heart of everything we do.

Applicants are welcome to discuss the position further and are encouraged to visit the school, please arrange via HLS_hr@holly-lodge.org. Completed applications should be sent to HLS_hr@holly-lodge.org by Monday 23rd May 2022 at 9am.

At Holly Lodge we are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. We expect all staff to share this commitment and to undergo appropriate checks, including enhanced DBS checks and a willingness to demonstrate commitment to the standards which flows from our vision and values.

The role is covered by part 7 of the Immigration Act 2016 and therefore the ability to speak fluent spoken English is an essential requirement for this role. Holly Lodge supports Equal Opportunities Employment.
