Contract Type: Full Time

We are looking to recruit an enthusiastic, energetic and positive teacher with a passion for inclusion and a desire to make a difference. As a highly inclusive school, we have a number of bespoke pathways and provisions to cater for a range of students. Our ‘second in inclusion’ would work closely with the Assistant Headteacher in charge of inclusion in the school, working both within Eduk8 and the main school.

EduK8 is a bespoke area of the school that works with vulnerable students and those at risk of permanent exclusion. Our January 2018 inspection report remarked that “Pupils taking time in the EduK8 provision make good progress. Many of these pupils were not doing as well as they could before they joined EduK8. They are less distracted and are learning more now.” We have become a local centre of excellence for how a school can be truly inclusive.

The role itself will involve teaching a range of both academic and vocational subjects

to small groups of students. This is an exciting opportunity to develop an area of

strength in the school, and the role will grow depending on the skillset of the


As a school, we recognise the importance of curriculum, and the students that fall

under our inclusion provision have access to a broad range of subjects and activities

including outdoor education, horticulture, animal care, construction and bicycle

maintenance. We also like to develop our staff, so if the successful candidate has an

area of interest that they would like to introduce as a curriculum area, we would be

excited to hear about this.

In June 2022 we were once more awarded as Platinum Investors in People School placing us in the top 1% of employers nationally. The following comments are from our 2019 and 2022 reports, and they sum up what it is like to work in our community:

“There is an underlying ‘family’ feel to the school, with everyone wanting to do their best for the students, whilst supporting one another in their development and wellbeing.”

Leaders invest heavily in their staff, for example they provide opportunities for staff to take care of both their physical and mental health.  Staff feel valued and like working at the school.  They comment favourably on Leaders’ attempts to reduce unnecessary workload, enable flexible working and respond positively to reasonable requests for compassionate or other leave.”
