Main advert detail
Hill Park is a special school for pupils aged 4 - 16 years with moderate (MLD), severe (SLD) or profound and multiple learning difficulties (PMLD). Some pupils also have a diagnosis of autistic spectrum condition (ASC), complex medical needs or physical disabilities, attachment disorders and / or challenging behaviours.
We are a warm, friendly and welcoming school with a supportive and caring staff, who work closely as a team.
Our school would be a great place for you to work if you:
- are reflective, flexible and resilient and enjoy working on your practice
- are interested in individualised learning with a holistic perspective that encompasses physical, sensory and behaviour development as well as curriculum learning
- have special needs experience OR are open to a new approach to pedagogy
- enjoy working with a team of professionals such as therapists and social care
- enjoy close working with families and creating trusting and warm relationships with them
Please contact the school office for more information and/or to arrange an informal visit. Previous experience in a special school is not essential, teachers looking to move from mainstream and NQT's are very welcome to apply as we offer a comprehensive Induction Programme.
