Teacher of Science

Permanent/ Full Time position.  

MPS-UPS plus SEN

 

We are looking for a dynamic, innovative and creative individual who is a good team player to teach science across the Upper School (years 9 – 11). Pupils at Elms typically take exams at Entry level, with some pupils taking GCSE exams.

 

The successful candidate will have a high level of emotional intelligence and resilience, a flexible approach to their work and an ability to embrace change. Previous experience working with children with special educational needs would be desirable but not essential.  The successful candidate will demonstrate an ability to engage our pupils in learning and to meet their needs in lessons. 

 

Our children have social, emotional and mental health needs and a nurturing approach and high levels of empathy are essential.  Candidates will need to have excellent behaviour management skills and some knowledge of the issues around attachment difficulties. 

 

Visits to the school are encouraged and a member of the Leadership team will look forward to introducing you to Elms.  Should you wish to take up this opportunity, please contact Melanie Wright on 01304 201964 or hr@elms.kent.sch.uk

 

Elms School is committed to safeguarding and promoting child welfare and Fundamental British Values. This position is subject to an enhanced DBS check, pre-employment medical clearance, good references and verification of the right to work in the UK.

Information about the school

Elms is a special school for pupils with social, emotional, mental health and learning needs. Most pupils display associated challenging behaviours resulting from a variety of difficulties and needs, including PTSD, attachment difficulties, ODD, ADHD, ASD and FASD.

Our broad and balanced curriculum is relevant, engaging and provides opportunities to achieve academic success as well as equipping them with skills for life. Our highly-trained staff provide bespoke therapeutic interventions, such as Thrive, to target developmental gaps and enable pupils to manage their behaviour and regulate their emotions so that they can form meaningful relationships throughout their lives. We also use Restorative Approaches to build and maintain a sense of community and to provide our pupils with the ability and attitude to respect the viewpoints of others and, when necessary, take responsibility for resolving conflict and putting things right.

Our Ofsted inspection in October 2017 was rated Good.

We have a large team, including our transport team who bring the pupils to and from school in our fleet of MPVs.
