About the role


MPS (Using the Larwood Academy Trusts higher than national pay scales) + SEN allowance.

About the role

Brandles School is a dynamic, exciting, and progressive secondary special school with an innovative and constantly evolving curriculum for boys with social, emotional and mental health related difficulties. We joined Larwood Academy Trust in February 2020.

Our mission is simple. To provide life-changing experiences for our pupils that equate to outstanding educational provision

We wish to appoint a passionate, dedicated and determined teacher who can build excellent relationships with students, for Autumn term 2022.
The role involves teaching KS3 and KS4 in very small groups of no more than 7 students, supported by a teaching assistant. This allows staff to form excellent relationships with the students.

Out small class sizes also lessen the burden of things like marking and assessment, reporting to parents and allow bespoke teaching to be given to students.

We need someone who:

· Has a passion for helping pupils that have faced challenges but recognises that when students are presented with suitable support, they can thrive.

· A 'can do' attitude and being keen to create hands on learning experiences

· Is willing to think in creative ways that help engage leaners

All of our pupils have Education Health Care Plans but thrive in our nurturing and well-structured environment. You can be assured that your work will transform lives.

We need the right person for our school and this role. Your attitude is the key driver, rather than your background and formal qualifications. If you do not have experience of working in special needs, please note that this is not a disadvantage. We value our staff and being part of a cohesive team is essential for us, as we are a small and friendly school.

There are a number of staff incentive programmes that recognise and support our dedicated staff, including:

  • Varied CPD opportunities that enhance knowledge and skills.
  • An early finish every Friday as students leave at 1:45pm on Fridays.
  • Staff well-being scheme and support for further study.
  • Free Medicash membership. This equates to cash back for various routine medical appointments      such as eye tests and dentistry etc. as well as a range of discounts in many shops. Staff can opt to add family members and children whilst in full time study are included for free.
  • Our own independent pay scale which is higher than national scales.

Visits to the school are encouraged. Please contact Mrs Beverley Rogers on 01462 896351 to arrange an appointment with Mr Paul Smith, Head Teacher.
