Priory Education and Children’s Services is a leading company in the UK offering independent behavioural care for commissioners across the UK. 

Job Advert Location Description

With over 100 high quality schools, colleges and homes we focus on making a real and lasting difference for everyone we support.

Job Advert Role Description

Eastwood Grange is a day school that provides a high quality of education for up to 50 boys and girls from the ages of 5 to 18.  All our pupils have education, health and care plans and experience Social, Emotional and Mental Health Difficulties. We are a forward looking and innovative school that seek to transform the lives of the pupils in our care.  The introduction of girls and a lower age group is new and has been achieved through a complete refurbishment and material change to the school. This will bring exciting and new challenges and opportunities to the right candidate.

As a qualified teacher you will demonstrate a wide range of SEN experience and have proven leadership and management expertise. An outstanding relationship builder, you will also know how to inspire exceptional performance and maintain a positive and enthusiastic learning environment for pupils and colleagues alike. You will lead and manage key areas of the school through the process of continuous improvement.

The successful candidate must come from an SEN background with experience of SEMH AS/ASD being highly beneficial but not essential. The successful candidate will be a fully qualified experienced teacher with relevant experience together with a sound understanding of the current legislation and statutory regulations relating to education.

If you share our determination to achieve the best possible outcomes for all our pupils, we can promise you a collaborative culture, ongoing professional development and ample scope to use your creativity and initiative as part of a highly energised and supportive team

Visits are strongly recommended. Please contact Jayne on 01246 590 255 to discuss further.

This is an exciting opportunity for the right candidate.
