Qualified Teachers or those due to start NQT year 2019

Five Acre Wood is a successful outward looking and expanding District Special School based over 3 sites in and around Maidstone, Kent. We currently have 432 pupils on roll aged 2-19 years with profound, severe and complex needs.  Our ‘Outstanding’ school will continue to expand and we are looking for people with a positive approach to join us who share our vision of ‘Only the best will do’ for all our students and staff.  We have been awarded ‘Investors in People - Gold award’ standard, the first school the assessor has awarded this standard at first application in 20 years. This demonstrates we really value our people and want to work with them to fulfil their career ambitions.

Due to an increase in pupil numbers we require teachers to join our outstanding school. We are looking for drive, enthusiasm and potential to join our friendly, professional, positive and forward looking school.

The successful candidates will either be experienced and successful SEN teachers who enjoy team working and taking responsibility, NQT's who can demonstrate they are going to add to the school or mainstream teachers who have a desire and passion to move to special needs teaching. We have a history of successful development of all 3 categories. You will benefit from opportunities for further professional development and career progression as we value and support staff in all aspects of school life. The successful candidates will also have a strong commitment to inclusive principles and be committed to safeguarding children and young people.

We have a comprehensive induction programme for all staff and a very supportive leadership team. Culture is important to us,  its not only what we do but how we do it and relationships across the whole school staff team are positive, inclusive and helpful.
