We are recruiting an outstanding SEN teacher to take responsibility of the English department across our school site in Seaford.
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. 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 EHCP. Most of our children and young people are not working at their age-related equipment so your pedagogic skills are as significant as your subject skills.

- 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).
