learn

Pinewood School Academy Trust is a SEND Secondary School in Ware, Hertfordshire which provides education for students with a range of needs including Autism, Down’s Syndrome and other conditions that result in a developmental delay. We cater for 191 pupils in School year 7 to 11. All our pupils have Education, Health and Care Plans which means we have to work closely with not only Hertfordshire Local Authority but also Essex and Enfield too to ensure effective provision to meet all the needs that our pupils bring with them.

We are looking for a new member of our staff team who will bring an engaging personality and a sense of humour to the work of the school. The successful applicant will work either 34.5 hours a week, term time only, plus five inset days.

Experience of working within a Special School is not a pre-requisite for this position. Rather, an interest and enthusiasm for developing within this exciting, challenging and rewarding area of education is key.

Pinewood School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.  The successful applicant will need to undertake an Enhanced Disclosure via the DBS.
