Job Advert Role Description

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.

As a Senior Teacher, you'll be:-

  • Supporting the Executive Head Teacher and Governors in ensuring the vision of Priory Education & Children's Services is clearly articulated, shared, understood and acted upon effectively by all stakeholders
  • Playing a key role within the hospital environment by building and maintaining positive professional relationships with the Hospital Director and wider MDT staff
  • Deputising for the Head of School in the day-to-day efficient management of the CAMHS hospital school in his/her absence, thus ensuring a consistently high quality education for all young people on roll
  • Taking a lead role in curriculum development and pastoral care, supported by the Head of School and Executive Head Teacher
  • Maintaining a continuous focus on young people’s achievement, effectively using data and benchmarks to monitor the progress in every young person’s learning
  • Ensuring the day-to-day application of a diverse and inclusive curriculum that is responsive to the needs of individual young people
  • Assisting the Head of School in assessing and monitoring the quality of planning, teaching and of learning outcomes, and helping to promote improvement strategies as necessary
  • Promoting outstanding teaching by consistently modelling good practice and providing peer support for all colleagues.
