A PMLD (Profound and Multiple Learning Difficulties) Teacher is required at an inclusive school in Richmond. The school itself is a well-run inclusive special school for students aged 2-19. Every pupil at the school is treated as an individual with specific programmes developed to meet their needs, therefore a holistic approach is provided to learning through the expertise of a qualified multi-disciplinary staff team.
The class sizes are small due to the nature of the impairments and the maximum capacity is 8 children in each class. There is excellent-in class support provided by experienced high-level Teaching Assistants which helps to support the ratio of adults to pupils in the school.
The role requires you to be a confident teacher and experience working with PMLD and SLD (Severe Learning Difficulties) or ASD (Autistic Spectrum Condition) children would be beneficial but is not essential. You will be required to plan the lessons, write reports and proactively participate in the general running of the school. You must be vigilant with regards to pupil's wellbeing but most importantly it is essential that you are able to think outside the box' and employ a creative attitude to teaching every child.
Despite the role being within the secondary section of the school, a Primary trained PMLD Teacher would be suitable as the students tend to work at a lower level than KS3/4.
• Teaching KS1 and KS2 curriculum or KS3 and KS4
• Assessing pupil's levels and ability
• Differentiating work based on students' needs and abilities
• Preparing, planning and marking work
• Good behaviour management of the class room
• Ensuring the schools ethos and policies are being implemented
• Liaising with parents and carers
To apply for this role you must have QTS.
Please note that you will not be considered for this position if you don't possess an enhanced DBS Disclosure, or if you are not eligible to work in the UK.
