Job Advert Role Description

We would like to recruit a talented candidate who shares our vision of student-centred learning, framed within an exciting and flexible curriculum.  As a Teacher of English, you will be a like-minded individual who would enjoy the opportunity to deliver subjects at Key stages 3, 4 and possibly 5.  We are keen to broaden our curriculum offer and would welcome ideas for strategic development.

Priory Education and Children’s Services is a leading company in the UK offering independent behavioural care for commissioners across the UK.  With over 100 high quality schools, colleges and homes we focus on making a real and lasting difference for everyone we support.

At Priory Education we are proud of our reputation for delivering quality education and care services with positive outcomes for children and young people aged 5 to 25 who have experienced difficulties in their previous education placements.

Roehampton CAMHS Outreach School is an independent co-educational day school for young people aged 11 to 18 with mental health problems. Our students are all inpatients of the Eating Disorder Unit and CAMHS Unit at The Priory Hospital Roehampton, London.  We have a team of specialist teachers and teaching assistants who deliver education to all young people at the hospital, where the school is based.

It is our intention that every student develops their courage, determination and skills as a learner, so they can re-engage confidently with their education on discharge. We liaise with mainstream schools and colleges and each young person has an individualised curriculum plan in each subject area, with progress being closely monitored.  Our school offers a broad based academic and enrichment curriculum, with specialist teaching spaces, teaching technologies and substantial grounds around our buildings.

We set high standards for teaching and learning and our students have very good levels of attendance and engagement.  You will need to be an outstanding practitioner, committed to the best possible outcomes for young people, passionate about influencing educational best practice and able to work effectively within a multidisciplinary team of professionals.

Also, a flexible, enthusiastic and self-motivated teacher who is able to support forward thinking change and respond quickly to the needs of each young person we teach.

The successful candidate will have responsibility for English curriculum development as well as the pastoral care of a small tutor group supported by the Head of School.  This is an excellent opportunity for candidates from mainstream or specialist education or community provision who are looking to move into a hospital specialist setting.

If you have relevant experience, possibly with relevant additional qualifications, then why not contact the Head of School, Russell Cooper for an informal chat on 0208 876 8261 (ext. 3436).  Visits to the school are warmly welcomed.

Closing date is Friday 29th March 2019, with interviews to be held the following week.
