Teachers at Marjory Kinnon School

Do you aspire to help children with autism or complex needs achieve their potential?

As a special educational needs (SEN) teacher at Marjory Kinnon School you will work with pupils who have autism, complex needs and/ or have social, emotional and mental health needs; many have a combination of these difficulties. You will provide support with their learning through a curriculum that meets each pupil’s specific needs in order that they reach their full educational potential.

A key aspect of working at Marjory Kinnon School is identifying individual needs and being responsible for creating a safe, stimulating and supportive learning environment. You will prepare lessons and resources, teach either individuals or small groups of pupils within, or outside, the class, mark and assess work, and develop and adapt conventional teaching methods to meet the individual needs of pupils. You will also liaise with other professionals, such as social workers, speech and language therapists, physiotherapists and educational psychologists as well as working closely with parents and carers to achieve the best outcomes for all our pupils.  We provide extensive ongoing training once you are in post.
