You will be delivering inclusive, responsive and innovative teaching and learning in a nurturing, supportive environment.

By joining the team, you will have the opportunity to benefit from bespoke training, CPD, networking and professional dialogue days with colleagues and peers both within and outside of Mill Green to ensure that you can reach your potential as a teacher within a specialist setting.

Interested candidates should submit a covering letter (no more than two sides A4), outlining how their experience, knowledge and understanding, skills and qualities make them an exceptional candidate for the role.

The school is committed to the safeguarding and welfare of children and young people and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
