We are looking for enthusiastic, dynamic and innovative Class Teachers to join our fantastic staff team at Shenstone School.  A teaching qualification is essential and experience within a special school or a mainstream setting with relevant SEND experience is desirable.  The ideal candidate will inspire and motivate pupils and lead a dedicated class team to encourage progression and happiness for pupils.  If you think you have what it takes to support and develop our pupils to maximise their post aspirational learning potential, then we would love to hear from you.

Information about the school

Shenstone School is an all-through specialist school for children and young people with severe and/or profound and multiple learning difficulties. Although we currently have a temporary facility for our secondary students, a specially adapted secondary school is currently being built in Halt Robin Road, Belvedere. We opened our doors to our secondary provision in September 2022 when we welcomed our first cohort of pupils and we now currently have one year 8 and two year 7 classes.

Our staff are passionate about providing our students with the best learning opportunities. Working in partnership with parents and carers, we successfully foster and develop a positive attitude in our young people and support them to have opportunities that will allow them to achieve beyond their expectations. The support and guidance students receive from staff give them the confidence to learn independently and strive to achieve their most aspirational outcomes. The school positions itself as a centre of excellence for its students, parents/carers, staff, local authorities and the wider community.

We aim to ensure that all students have the maximum opportunity to participate fully in society to enhance their life chances. We pride ourselves on ensuring that learning remains purposeful but is equally fun. We are committed to supporting the emotional health and well-being of all our students, staff and parents/carers, and we stand by our motto of “Together we engage, thrive and achieve”.

We are very proud of Shenstone School and our achievements, which include autism accreditation through the National Autistic Society, The Wellbeing Award for Schools, Outstandingly Happy School status, Move Centre of Excellence Award, National Online Safety Certified School status, and we are also an accredited Arts Award Centre. We continue to expand with new ideas and initiatives to maintain and improve services for students and staff.

Staff at Shenstone School can access the following benefits: excellent induction and probation processes, comprehensive in-house training, competitive pension scheme, employee counselling services, vaccination programmes, on-site mental health first aid team and various other well-being and social activities
