We are looking for highly dedicated and enthusiastic class teachers to join our life skills pathways in key stage 2 and 3.

If you are a teacher currently working in mainstream but looking for something a little different this could be for you. We have very high standards and aspirations for our children. We are focused on each student achieving their individual potential rather than phonics screening or SATS results. The aim of our curriculum is to ensure that students are well prepared for life beyond Wyvern, this includes their self care, independence, social skills as well as English and Maths

If you are a creative teacher with excellent knowledge of early childhood development, the EYFS or the key stage one curriculum this could be the opportunity for you.  Equally if you are a Key Stage two Teacher with expert knowledge of differentiation to meet the needs of children with SEND or a love for real life interactive teaching strategies, we would love to hear from you. 

Team work is essential in all of our classes and successful applicants will work as part of a supportive team.  This includes your class team of LSAs and the wider key stage and school team. 

Visits to our school are warmly encouraged. 

Part time and full time equally considered

Visits to the school are encouraged.  To arrange an appointment to visit our school, please make contact by telephone or email to personnel@wyvern.kent.sch.uk
