  • MPS + SEN Point
  • Newly Qualified Teachers may wish to apply for this post

Due to the growth and re-structure of the Primary Phase we are looking to recruit a Full time Teacher.

The Wherry School opened in September 2017 with 48 learners, initially in Years 1 to 8, and within three years will grow to its full capacity of 100 students across the 4-19 age range. In September 2018 20 new learners joined the school. The school has been established to meet a clear educational need in the area and is supported by a Trust and educational partners, all of whom are successfully providing outstanding education and/or support to children and young people in Norfolk.

The successful candidates will be qualified teachers and required to deliver their subject specialism across classes in the Primary School (approximately 6 children per class and 2 Teaching Assistants) and to personalise the learning for the children they teach and direct support staff to ensure that individual needs are met.

Already a teacher, or a newly or recently qualified teacher with relevant experience of working with children and young people with autism, you have a strong track record and knowledge of Key Stage 2 Curriculum. You will demonstrate excellent knowledge of working with pupils with Special Educational Needs and possess outstanding classroom management skills which reflect the specific needs of this group of learners along with highly developed interpersonal skills. What will set you apart will be your relentless commitment to achieving high standards of teaching and learning, your passion for improving outcomes for young people with Autism and the highest aspirations for all learners you work with.
