SEN Maths Teacher job vacancy in Somerset, Permanent position

Inclusion in schools can be a challenge. Students are faced with massively varied barriers to participating in learning, which end up affecting their life chances. When this barrier is a student's behaviour, they can often be excluded from school because of the disruption that they cause for other students, which can be the start of a vicious cycle of exclusion.

An alternative provision in Somerset caters specifically for students who have been excluded from mainstream schools because of barriers that have been put up after some kind of trauma. This trauma can be inflicted by students themselves, their families, or their peers, and can result in behaviour which can make access to learning incredibly difficult. Inclusion is at the core of this school's ethos, and a student has never been permanently excluded.

They are looking for a maths teacher to continue with the work that they are doing to overcome these barriers to participation. The school runs a large proportion of its lessons outside, and tries to avoid a traditional classroom setting wherever possible. Most of the teaching is done on a 1:1 basis, so that students' individual needs can be catered for, unlike in a mainstream school where they can be lost in the noise of 30 others. This doesn't mean that you will be outside teaching students Pythagoras through the medium of whittling or anything; you would be key to maintaining students' progress towards GCSEs or Functional Skills qualifications.

If you have experience in working with students whose behaviour is often a barrier to their participation in learning, and you're interested in this job, send in your CV or call Andy in the Bristol office.
