Looking for career development?   Are you pupil focused?

Do you want to make a difference?

Do you want to work in a well resourced and supportive school?

A great opportunity has arisen for an inspirational teacher to join our school community. Grange Park at Stansted is an autism specific provision for 8 - 11 year olds which opened in September 2019.

If you are an outstanding teacher with a strong belief in the potential of all learners and the opportunity to make a difference, look no further.

The school offers comprehensive training in ASC, exceptional CPD support and development opportunities

The school offers a strong collaboration and outreach support from Grange Park school which is an autism specific provision for 8-19 year olds and has been accredited for over 10 years by the National Autistic Society (NAS). Grange Park school is currently judged as ‘Good’ by Ofsted, the school is very well placed to becoming Outstanding and is over subscribed.

We also offer more than the minimum 10% PPA.

Class sizes are small (12/13 pupils in a class) and have full time teaching assistants supporting classes to ensure pupils enjoy personalised learning.  Our pupils are keen and highly motivated; they want to learn.

This post is ideal for a dynamic and motivated teacher who wants to develop knowledge and understanding of educating children with autism.  Expertise in teaching autism and experience of working in a similar environment would be advantageous, but you DO NOT need experience in an SEN setting or ASC. If you are a great teacher with a passion then we are the school for you.
