The Governing Body of Lindsworth School is seeking to appoint a teacher of science.  

This is an exciting opportunity to be part of a forward thinking pro-active team committed to further improving outcomes for very vulnerable young people.

As a school we are firmly committed to developing the talents and potential of all our staff and place great emphasis on their wellbeing.  We are focused on, and committed to, making rapid progress towards delivering an outstanding provision and are looking to appoint staff who:

•    have high expectations of themselves and pupils

Lindsworth School is a mixed day/residential special school meeting the needs of 126 pupils from Year 5 to Year 11 who have been assessed as having social, emotional, and mental health difficulties. Many of the pupils have medical diagnoses including ADHD, ASC, PTSD, PDA, ODD and Attachment Disorder. They have also experienced significant disruption to their education due to multiple school moves, fixed term and permanent exclusions and long periods of part-time or no placement in a school.

This is a school where you can make a real and lasting difference to the young people in our care. We are highly ambitious to provide our pupils with the best education and preparation for a happy and successful life in the adult world.
