Special Needs Teacher
• SEN Teacher (Primary School Setting)
• Temp to Perm
• High Wycombe
• Starting September
• Pay depending on experience
AN SEN school based in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire is seeking a special needs teacher with recent SLD experience to join their team ASAP. Ideally the successful applicant will have a proven track record working in an SEN environment but the Head teacher will consider a primary trained teacher with a passion for SEN, a proven track record as a teacher and a can do attitude.
The successful applicant will be teaching a mixed KS1 class (6 pupils) with Severe Learning Difficulties (SLD.) the majority of the children have additional medical and sensory needs as well as physical impairments.
Much of the work you would be doing will be based loosely on the Early Years curriculum with a particular focus on developing social and communication skills. You will be working alongside two really friendly learning support assistants (LSAs) who know the children and the school procedures and will help you get up to speed quickly. Some experience of PECS and Makaton would be advantageous but training is available
The successful candidate will be flexible, with the ability to use their own initiative where required. Experience working in an SEN school or with SLD children would be an advantage but the school are clear that they want a good teacher first and foremost – excellent training is available. They would be more than happy to support an excellent practitioner with passion for SEN but limited SEN experience.
Progress with these pupils can be slow when compared to their contemporaries so patience, a caring nature, passion for the job and strong self-belief will be essential
