Teacher Main Scale + 1 SEN with Whole School Responsibility
We are a school for primary aged children with complex needs including moderate learning difficulties. A significant number of our pupils are also on the autistic spectrum. We currently have 108 children on roll.
We place the child at the centre of what we offer, utilising individual EHC plans to structure our provision and support the holistic needs of our children. Working in partnership with families and other agencies is crucial to our success.
We work hard to ensure that all our children can learn in a positive environment. In line with the UN Convention of the Rights of a Child we have developed a set of rights that apply to both pupils and the adults working in our school.
At Woodsetton we all have the right to...
Communicate in our own way; taking time to listen and time to be heard.
Be the best we can be; achieving our full potential and allowing others to do the same.
Feel safe and protected; taking responsibility for our actions and showing awareness for others.
Be different but still treated the same; showing respecting and understanding to others.
Explore the environment around us; looking after our school and taking pride in the community.
The Governors of Woodsetton School are seeking to appoint two inspirational, dynamic, committed teachers to join our successful and dedicated school team from September 2019. We are particularly keen to hear from candidates who have experience in developing and leading (or have an interest in) a total communication approach.
A comprehensive package of training and support is offered by the school to ensure that everyone has the skills required to prepare our pupils for the next stage of their life.
Have you got the skills we are looking for to contribute towards our drive to deliver outstanding provision?
