Primary School - Croydon

We are looking for a Early Years SEN Teacher for a new role at a mainstream primary school based in the London Borough of Croydon. The school has a hugely diverse intake and is proud of its inclusive approach to learning, they also have a SEN provision for children who require additional support.

Early Years SEN Teacher

This is a new role created to meet the demand for SEN places in the London Borough of Croydon. You will teach a class of 6 children who all have the support of a 1:1 TA. Some of the children will be assisted to transition to their mainstream classes and others will remain until a space at a more specialist SEN setting is found. This is an immediate requirement however the demand is such that the school is looking to make this a permanent role for the right SEN Teacher. Year on year more children with special and additional needs join their school due to its inclusive ethos and SEND provision, therefore this is a role that the Head is keen to make a permanent one. For those looking for interim work, this is also compatible for this role, please apply/enquire either way. All teachers must have successfully completed a teacher training course and have a passion for SEN/inclusive education, and a positive and enthusiastic energy!
