An amazing opportunity to join a supportive team, in a new 30 place specialist unit on the site of St Edmund’s Catholic Primary school in the thriving market town of Bury St Edmunds. We are looking for an experienced teacher who has knowledge of working with pupils with special education need and disabilities. You will be responsible for a class of 12, reception, year 1 and 2 pupils. The pupils will have a variety of needs including very early stages of communication using intensive interaction, PECS and Makaton.

Working alongside the unit lead and a team of teaching assistants, you will develop a curriculum providing play-based learning experiences. You will be able to make a difference to the lives of some of the most vulnerable members of our community. Our Staff are able to participate in significant professional development opportunities from induction of Early Career Teachers to NPQML, NPQSL, NPQH and Master’s degree. You will be joining an established federation of two primary schools where shared planning and assessment are designed to support staff well-being. We welcome staff who share and support the Catholic ethos of our school.

The Federation is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and requires all staff and volunteers to demonstrate this commitment in every aspect of their work.  The successful candidate will need to undertake a DBS check.
