Speech and Language teacher job

£23,719 - £39,406
Community primary school
Lewes, East Sussex

Sussex Teachers are working with a large community primary school in Lewes to find a temporary SEN teacher to begin after February half term. This thriving and happy school are looking for a committed and enthusiastic Speech and Language Specialist to join them until at least Easter, possibly until the end of this academic year.

You will be working in the school’s specialist speech and language unit which provides support for 16 primary-aged pupils from across East Sussex. All children on roll have Statements of Special Educational Need or EHCPs for severe and specific language needs (SLCN) which cannot be met in mainstream schools. As well as receiving specialist help in the unit, these pupils are also integrated into mainstream classes for some lessons. There is a dedicated staff of specialist teaching and support staff and speech and language therapists attached to the Unit.

You will be working within their KS2 classroom, teaching 6 children aged from 9 – 11. You will be responsible for planning and delivering their learning, ensuring work is pitched to the correct level and is engaging to all learners. Creating a nurturing and supportive environment for the children in your care, you will build good working relationships with children, teachers, parents/carers and external agencies. As this is a long-term supply teaching role you may be expected to attend staff meetings and will need to complete assessments on your pupil’s progress.

You will hold Qualified Teacher Status and will ideally have further qualifications in SEN and/or Speech and Language needs. The successful teacher will have a commitment to achieving high standards for themselves and the children that they teach. You will have a good working knowledge of EHCP’s/statements and have recent experience supporting students with special needs. You will be able to create and deliver excellent learning experiences and be able to demonstrate and develop high quality class room practice.

This is an excellent opportunity for a teacher who would like the security and job satisfaction of long-term teaching but isn’t able to commit to a permanent role (though there could be capacity to be taken on for the right candidate). You will have the opportunity to work collaboratively to plan, assess, teach and review a suitably differentiated curriculum in line with the main school framework. Due to the extra responsibilities that this role entails, you will be paid to your scale point and the school have said they will be able to honour UPS status.
