Jobs in special needs schools in London

Protocol Education is working with the Learning in Harmony Trust to find staff for their growing SEND provision in Newham. This year, the trust will open a new special school and expand an existing one, creating a range of opportunities for people to be part of something truly special.

Working in a special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) school comes with a unique set of challenges and rewards. Success depends on your commitment, hard work, and dedication. However, knowing that each day your contribution will positively affect the life of a child or young person who needs additional support, makes it all worthwhile.

Find out what it is like to work in a special school by watching the recording of our special event.​

Nithra Subramaniam and Jim Robinson, head teachers at JFK and Connaught Schools, explained what it takes to work in special needs to a group of educators in March 2023.

The Jobs​

Special Needs experience is not essential

Previous experience working with children with SEND is desirable but not essential. We are also looking for people new to working in a special needs school.

If you have related experience, such as providing personal care, therapy, or have a strong desire to work in a SEND environment, we want to hear from you.

The Trust is open to looking at different career pathways to find the right people for this unique opportunity.
