SEN Teacher – Art and English Specialist, St. John’s school, Seaford

Vacancy – St. John’s school, Seaford
SEN Teacher – Art and English Specialist
£32,000.00 – £37, 000.00, depending on experience

We are recruiting an outstanding SEN Art generalist teacher to lead on our Art curriculum for our school in Seaford, alongside managing our English department.

You will be highly creative and skilled at engaging our Children and Young People with Art.

The role will see you plan lessons effectively, identifying clear teaching objectives, lesson content and structures to ensure that the Children and Young People can meet their fullest potential through their expression of Art. You will set high expectations for support staff both in the planning and implementation of learning and set well-grounded, realistic yet challenging expectations and targets, making effective use of information about pupils’ prior attainment and their EHCPs. Most of our Children and Young People are not working at their age-related equivalent so your pedagogic skills are as significant as your subject skills.

You will:

  • have QTS
  • be responsible for the running and management of a tutor group, which may have young people with severe learning difficulties (SLD)
  • have detailed knowledge and understanding of Children and Young Peoples’ National Curriculum and other statutory requirements
  • be able to demonstrate knowledge and understanding in the classroom and take account of wider curriculum developments, which are relevant to your work (including the school’s aims, objectives, policies and schemes of work).
  • be flexible with strong emotional resilience and skills in reflective practice
  • ideally have experience with teaching children and young people with Autism and complex behaviours, but this is not essential as training will be provided.

This opportunity might suit an experienced mainstream teacher who wishes to work in a specialist SEN setting and/or a teacher who wishes to lead a substantial piece of whole-school curriculum development.

Please email your expression of interest to on why you wish to apply for the post and detail your relevant skills & experience.

St. John’s is committed to the safeguarding and protection of young people, vulnerable adults and children.

Employment will be subject to the receipt of two satisfactory professional references, an enhanced DBS certificate and occupational health clearance.
