Required from September 2019 or earlier if possible.

Do you enjoy a challenge? Do you thrive on working with young people who find school a struggle? Are you excited about the prospect of helping young people to turn themselves round and return to mainstream education?

As a residential pupil referral unit Hampden House is unique. We currently have space for 12 residential boys and 18 day boys with social, emotional and mental health needs, aged 8-14.

We are currently on an exciting journey; firstly, one of rapid improvement, following a disappointing Ofsted judgement and secondly, one of potential growth and development, as part of the Local Authority's overall strategy for SEND provision in Suffolk.

We are looking for a strong, creative and versatile team player who has patience, stamina and a good sense of humour. Subject specialism is not important, but the willingness to teach across the curriculum with a passion for engaging every child with learning is essential. Every new teacher at Hampden House benefits from high quality training and individual support.

This post is a superb opportunity for a forward-thinking teacher.

You could be:

  • a mainstream teacher looking for a new challenge or direction
  • a primary school middle leader seeking to broaden their experience in SEND / behaviour management as a preparation for senior leadership
  • a teacher experienced in SEND / Alternative Provision looking for a new opportunity in a different setting.

A job share would be considered.

You are warmly invited to visit the school before applying, and we would be very pleased to speak to you on the phone if you would like more information. Please contact Graham Alcock, Headteacher on (01787) 373583.

An application pack can be downloaded from the related information section.

Interview date: w/c 06 May 2019.

Please return the completed application form to the school.

This authority is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. DBS checks or police vetting will be required for relevant posts. Suffolk County Council - welcoming diversity.
