Teacher of the Deaf Primary – Blanche Nevile School
Primary age range
Salary: MPS + Inner London Allowance + 1 SEN point
Blanche Nevile School for Deaf Children, North London
We are an exciting, innovative and successful provision for deaf children aged 3 – 16. The Primary school is co-located with Highgate Primary School and 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 primary 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 primary age range is desirable as is experience of teaching children with SEND. Additional support and training will be given as required.
