Special Needs Resource Base (SNRB) Teacher - Abersychan School

Torfaen Local Authority

Salary: MPS \/ UPS + SEN Allowance

We have an exciting opportunity for a passionate, dedicated and innovative teacher to join our Special Needs Resource Base (SNRB) department at Abersychan School. We are looking for an exceptional primary or secondary trained teacher who can help our children to fulfil their potential and then flourish in adult life. You do not necessarily require experience of teaching at a special school; we welcome and support teachers looking to transfer from mainstream. We also welcome applications from PGCE students / NQTs. Our 45 students in the SNRB have a range of complex learning difficulties, including speech and language difficulties, and autism. You will be joining a team that consists of a middle leader, 2 teachers, 1 higher level teaching assistant and 6 teaching assistants. Our stage not age approach supports all of our students to make strong progress and our SNRB staff work extremely well to coordinate this provision as a team.

If you are excited by the prospect of playing a significant role in helping us achieve our ambitions, have a belief that all students, no matter what their background or ability, can achieve and have a passion for providing an outstanding education, then, we would love to hear from you! In return, we will guarantee you the very best level of support.

Abersychan School is an 11 - 16 co-educational comprehensive school which meets the needs of children of all abilities. Our aim is simple: we want every person to fulfil their potential, whatever their talents and ambitions. We are a school that is committed to ensuring that all our young people are happy, successful and ready for their lives beyond school. Our expectations and standards are high. We have a highly committed and caring staff who are dedicated to ensuring each child achieves their personal best. The school currently has 770 students, 50 teachers and 58 members of support staff. The school serves an area of significant socio-economic deprivation with 32% of students entitled to FSM and 51% of students living in the 20% most deprived areas of Wales.
