Special Educational Needs Teachers - Garratt Park School

Please Note: The application deadline for this job has now passed.

The Role

Required from 1st September 2022

Are you driven to provide the best possible education for young people with special needs?

Are you an innovative, creative teacher who has a passion for English and Drama?

We are looking for an English & Drama teacher to join us at Garratt Park. You may be an experienced teacher or ECT from a secondary, primary or special needs background. You will need to be an excellent classroom practitioner who is able to deliver these subjects to students at different levels.  Drama is a relatively new subject, currently delivered at KS3 only, but we are looking to develop this.  English is taught across the school and is accredited at KS4 and KS5 through Entry Level Certificates, GCSE and ASDAN with excellent rates of progress for students in relation to their pathway. We are a small school, so the ability to teach other subjects would also be an advantage. We have a supportive body of staff and can offer professional development opportunities for the right candidate.

Garratt Park School is a special school for children and young people aged 11-19 who have moderate learning difficulties, along with other special needs disabilities including Autism, SCLN, sensory impairments and a small number with more complex needs.  We are situated in the inner London borough of Wandsworth and most of our students come from the local area, from diverse backgrounds with around one third entitled to free school meals. Earlsfield is well served by public transport with easy access to the city centre.
