Brackenfield School is an area special school for the South of Derbyshire, providing an exciting and relevant education for young people with complex needs including communication and comprehension difficulties. 

Due to an exciting expansion of the school, the Head Teacher and Governors wish to appoint a teacher with a start date as soon as possible.

The successful candidates will join an experienced team of teachers, STLAs and LSAs who support young people aged 3 to 18, ranging in ability from in-formal to semi-formal learners (equivalent range from previous Pscale P3i to end of Y2- KS1 expectations).

 All of our young people have complex learning needs. We have a specific focus on pupils with complex communication and cognition needs and those with significant visual and auditory impairments. Pupils in Brackenfield school are not chronologically age grouped and instead are grouped by their cognitive, social, communication and sensory needs. Brackenfield run highly personalised curriculums which prepare pupils for adulthood. We operate both an informal and semi-formal approach. 

We are looking for someone to join our highly skilled team, who can build excellent relationships with our children and is committed to high standards in the classroom as part of a highly motivated and hardworking team. You should have knowledge and understanding of specialist education and early childhood development. Successful applicants will need an understanding of the issues and support strategies relating to children with complex special educational needs. 

The successful applicant will promote the school ethos through high levels of expectation, being an adaptable team player, promoting growth mindset through recognition of character education and be able to encourage pupil independence. In specific we are looking for applicants who have experience in working with pre-verbal pupils with complex needs. However, other relevant experience will also be considered. 

If you would like to book to visit the school or you would like more information or to visit the school please contact hr@brackenfield.derbyshire.sch.uk or call 0115 9733710.
