Jack Tizard School is a purpose-built school for students aged 3-19 with severe and profound and multiple learning difficulties. Judged ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted during its last two inspections, we are a thriving community school with innovative curriculum and assessment systems and a highly regarded Outreach and Inclusion Service.

The role includes leading small groups of between 4 – 8 students, as well as taking a lead in a key area of the school, such as curriculum resources and the arts. Both roles will be well supported by a class teacher. Ideally candidates will have some experience of working with children and young people with special needs, however, other strengths may be considered for the right candidate. We offer a supportive environment where staff induction and training will be provided.
