There is a vacancy for a Permanent/Full Time Class Teacher, a Fixed Term/Full Time Class Teacher to cover a period of long term sickness and a Full Time Class Teacher to cover a period of maternity leave.

Lansbury Bridge School & Sports College is a generic special school which caters for 222 children and young people, aged 3-16. All of our pupils have complex needs and have an EHCP in place. The majority of pupils have profound, severe or moderate learning difficulties while over 50% also have a diagnosis of ASC. A number have additional sensory, physical and medical difficulties.
