If you are looking for a teaching post where the learning community is a valued priority in the school and you share our core value of wanting to make a difference in the lives of our students then this could be the job for you!

Laleham Gap School is a highly oversubscribed provision for 4 -16 year olds with high functioning ASD and / or specific speech and / or language disorder and has an outstanding residential facility. We are currently graded as a “good” school and are are firmly embedded on our journey to becoming “outstanding”.

The school offers comprehensive induction training as well as a range of in house and external training.

We are looking to recruit a Maths teacher to cover a period of maternity leave within our Secondary provision to start in September 2017. This highly rewarding post will provide the subject based challenge teachers often desire in a special school setting. We offer a large number of stepping stone qualifications that include the higher GCSE levels and building a portfolio of numeracy skills that enable our students to confidently make their transition into adult life.

The large majority of our students make progress in line with national expectations. In addition to this a significant number of our students thrive in the subject area of Maths and make accelerated / outstanding progress. With this in mind we are looking for a dynamic Maths specialist with the enthusiasm and passion to join this dedicated team. Our Maths team core characteristics include the energy and passion to continually provide the diverse and varied learning opportunities to enable students to understand and enjoy Maths.

Our students are keen and highly motivated; they want to learn!

The small class sizes, targeted support across the school and flexibility to meet student needs, means that our students are well equipped to reach their maximum potential and creates a teaching environment this is highly rewarding to work in.

Experience of working with children with autism would be an advantage but is not essential.

If you share our passion to continually develop positive learning environments to support our students to reach their potential then we are very keen to hear from you.
