Blanche Nevile School for Deaf Children, North London

Blanche Nevile School is an exciting and innovative provision for deaf children aged 3-16. The Secondary school is co-located with Fortismere School, Muswell Hill. We offer the best of both worlds through quality inclusion and small class specialist teaching. We are looking for an excellent Secondary practitioner to join our skilled team of deaf and hearing staff with a commitment to a child centred, sign bilingual approach.

The school is on a journey to ‘Outstanding’ following a ‘Good’ Ofsted (November 2017).
“Pupils are well-rounded individuals because they are taught to develop their understanding of deaf issues and their place in the wider community. They learn the importance of being tolerant of others, and are keen to help the pupils they join for inclusion lessons understand what being deaf means” (Ofsted 2017).

The successful candidate will:
• promote effective inclusive education for deaf pupils
• have high expectations and excellent planning and differentiation skills
• knowledge of British Sign Language or a commitment to work towards a minimum BSL Level 3
• have excellent communication and interpersonal skills
• be flexible with a commitment to work in partnership with a mainstream team

Teacher of the Deaf qualification is desirable but not essential. However, the successful applicant would be expected to undergo training to gain this mandatory qualification, which will be funded by the school. Experience across the Secondary age range is desirable as is experience of teaching children with SEND. Additional support and training will be given as required. The ability to offer a second subject is also desirable.

Informal visits to the Secondary Department via Zoom are warmly welcomed by appointment. Please call/text 07981 898976. The Head of Maths will be very pleased to discuss the details of this post.

Safeguarding: Blanche Nevile School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff, volunteers and other third parties to share this commitment. Safer recruitment practice and pre-employment background checks will be undertaken before any appointment is confirmed following the validation of two relevant references for the post applied for. The successful candidate will be required to obtain an enhanced DBS Certificate prior to starting work.
