A Primary Specialist teacher is required to join this rapidly expanding provision in the Royal Borough of Greenwich which meets the needs of young people with diagnoses of Autism and severe mental health concerns. You will ideally have experience with high functioning youngsters on the spectrum but more importantly will be an outstanding teacher with a can do attitude and the resilience to work with our challenging cohort.

Teachers will be trained to teach within KS2-5 and will preferably have experience of working with young people with ASD using specific interventions such as TEACCH, SPELL framework and SCERTS.


We are particularly interested in appointing primary specialists for our KS3 classes. Your role will be to play a key part in the delivery of the national curriculum to our small cohort. You will have a subject specialism but will also be flexible enough and take on responsibility for other subject areas depending on your strengths and the balance of the team. Primary specialists will have a class group and will teach most of their lessons to allow consistency within the classroom. The senior leadership team is determined to give our students the best opportunities possible to become successful, responsible citizens with bright futures.


We opened in a refitted building in May 2016 and by September 2018 we will have our capacity of 55 students on roll in years 7-14. The curriculum is developing to meet the social communication and emotional literacy needs of our cohort and covers a diversity of academic need from entry to A level.


We are looking for:

  • Outstanding classroom practitioners with the ability to inspire others and a commitment to high standards
  • A proven record of good academic results with students of all abilities
  • Innovation and an ability to inspire students with a range of needs
  • Preferably experience of working with students with ASD with experience of specific interventions outlined above
  • Resilience
