All applications are encouraged; we are particularly keen to hear from teachers with an interest in Maths, PE or Early Years.

 

At Meadowfield we work hard to ensure that all of our pupils make excellent progress, and we continually seek to improve the wellbeing of both pupils and staff. Now is an exciting time to join our Outstanding school as we expand in order to better meet the demand for special school places in Swale.  We are incredibly proud our very recent Ofsted inspection (see the report on our profile page).  Ofsted recognise that relationships between our staff and pupils are exceptionally positive, and we are delighted that our pupils told inspectors they are very happy at the school and really enjoy their lessons.

We encourage all of our employees to further their career development and we respect initiative and ambition. We are committed to performance management, staff training, coaching, mentoring and peer support.

We are looking for motivated and enthusiastic Teachers to join our highly skilled team, making a difference to our pupils with profound, severe and complex needs in our Lower School and Secondary Departments.  Experience of working in a special needs setting and teaching pupils with ASD as well as learning difficulties is desirable, but not essential.  If you work in a mainstream setting and are curious about Special Needs Schools, you are welcome to visit us to find out more. 

If you are appointed to a teaching role with us, we guarantee that you will be well supported.  You will receive a structured process of induction and will benefit from the collective support of a highly experienced network of colleagues.

From all staff we expect commitment to the school and a desire to improve and excel. Further information about the responsibilities of the role can be found in the attached job description.
