An exciting opportunity for a skilled teacher to make a real difference for academically able students in a new, well-resourced specialist setting.
Chestnut Place provides a calm, home-from-home, low sensory environment in rural surroundings, carefully designed to support up to 18 pupils aged 16+. Our students are unlikely to display challenging behaviour but are unable to access mainstream school due to autism, anxiety or sensory needs. Students will be able to learn at or above age-related expectations but may have gaps in their knowledge from their previous educational experience.
Applications are invited from teachers with at least two years of relevant experience teaching students in Key Stages 4 and 5.
The successful candidate will have a positive and flexible approach, be patient and open-minded, be able to help students recognise and reach their full potential and understand the importance of working in co-production with families, colleagues, clinicians and the students themselves.
Applications will be processed in line with our Safer Recruitment policy and will be subject to safeguarding checks.
Chestnut Place is committed to safeguarding and promoting student welfare and we expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
