If you enjoy working in a challenging environment where every day is different from the rest then this school could be an ideal work place for you.

Your main duties will include:
·Inspiring and engaging with pupils with physical and mental difficulties.

We undertake safeguarding checks on all our workers in accordance with the DfE statutory guidance Keeping Children Safe in Education'. As part of these checks, we require a current Enhanced DBS Disclosure for everyone working in schools. If you do not have a valid subscription to the DBS Update Service, we will require you to complete a new DBS application as part of the registration process, at a cost of £44.00.
