About The Role

Teacher - The Quay School
 
Permanent 
 
Salary: MPR (£30,000 - £46,525) + SEN Allowance £2,539
 
Full Time, Term Time Only
 
As part of Delta, Education Trust, The Quay School’s vision is “Learning together in pursuit of happiness”. This means we really care whether pupils love or hate their learning, so we work hard to create a space where pupils learn together to become knowledgeable, self-aware, independent and happy people who make a positive difference, wherever life takes them. Are you an enthusiastic individual who can bring this vision to life and make a real difference to children’s lives?

We require someone who can take an innovative approach to achieving the desired results for our students and who can empower young people to see the importance of qualifications as a foundation to a successful journey in life.

Russell our Headteacher and his senior team are always looking for awesome people to join them, and right now are looking for a KS3 Teacher for our Nurture Class (primary trained also welcome) to be based at our Parkstone campus. This is a secure and positive environment for students to enable them to overcome their barriers to learning. Through our nurturing environment we aim to build students resilience to enable them to access education and transition back to mainstream or on to a range of post 16 options.

All of our students struggle to engage with education and have been referred to us by health professionals. We work closely with health colleagues, in particular the Tier 3 CAMHS team to support our students and their families.

Our curriculum closely mirrors a mainstream curriculum offering Key stage 3 and 4 classes in small groups of no more than 8 pupils. Students can access a combination of GCSEs, vocational courses, Functional Skills literacy and numeracy, PSHE, sport and active leisure whilst developing their emotional literacy and communication skills.

Our ethos is based around improving emotional literacy, resilience and self-esteem as well as cultivating a love of learning. If we are successful in this, we know that students’ behaviour will improve.

You will be part of an inclusive and collaborative team that, no matter what the challenge may be, are ready to face it head on and are committed to seeing it through.

Learning can look different for everyone; learning is continuous and enabled by the broad curriculum, therapeutic interventions, and the environment the school and staffing team create. It’s only through your awesome teaching that we will create that environment together to ensure the pupils progress towards a happy life that they can enjoy.

The Quay School is an OFSTED rated Outstanding, National Teaching School Hub and a progressive educational establishment that supports young people through difficult times in their lives.

You will have the opportunity to develop your career in a School and Delta Education Trust, a small but growing Trust. Our ethos is encompassed in our vision “Learning together in pursuit of happiness”. We put this into practice by ensuring:  

All decisions are made in the best interests of staff, students and families.  

High support, high challenge and evidence informed in everything we do.

We work collaboratively and make team, not individual, decisions.  

We acknowledge our mistakes and use them to learn and improve.  

We are always open to learning and seeking new ideas.  

Visits to the school are welcomed, please contact Helen Cottrell (Assistant Headteacher) on 01202 716910 to arrange an appointment.
