We are looking for people to join our team that share our passion for enabling every child, irrespective of their need, to develop to their full potential. Whilst we would prefer somebody to be able to commit to 30 hours a week, Mon – Fri during term time, we will work with the right candidate to find mutually agreeable attendance pattern.

The school provides education for 4-11 year olds with a range of learning, communication and physical needs in a caring and nurturing environment.  We have high-end facilities including a hydrotherapy pool, extensive outdoor areas and excellent IT provision. A range of therapy support is available in school for the children including Occupational Therapy, Physiotherapy, Hydrotherapy, Art Therapy and Speech and Language Therapy.

We can guarantee that no two days will be the same and our differentiated. rich and bespoke curricula means there is always a variety of experiences to be had by children and the staff.

Based on a 30 hour week, term time only contract  you can expect an actual salary of between £16,442 & £17,171  depending on experience. Whilst ideally we are looking for people to join us for 30 hours, 5 days a week, we can be flexible and will work with you to find hours that suit within those parameters.
