Specialist SEN Teacher - Whipton Barton Federation

Thank you for taking the time to consider applying for the post of Teacher (with SEN experience preferable) in our federation.

Our federation is fast gaining a reputation as a place where pupils with additional needs are supported in an exemplary way. Led by an outstanding SENDCo, we have built a team of SEND professionals who work very effectively alongside children, teachers and parents to deliver the very best provision for those pupils with SEND. We are now expanding this provision, having been selected by DCC to provide an eight-space resource base for children with communication and interaction difficulties. We expect this to be operational from January 2022.  For the successful candidates, we can offer a dynamic working environment, excellent training, wide ranging career development opportunities and a real opportunity to make a difference to the lives of our pupils. We also pride ourselves on our welcoming and inclusive ethos.
