The Propeller Academy Trust
Headteacher: Stephanie Coneboy
Would you like to work in a school where celebrating everyone’s achievement is paramount, where fun and laughter is viewed as a vital element in the learning environment? Then Fitzwaryn might be the school for you.
Fitzwaryn is a small (but growing!) friendly and extremely successful school for 97 young people aged 3-19 with a range of learning difficulties, including moderate and severe learning difficulties, PMLD and autism. We received our third ‘Outstanding’ OFSTED in October 2014 We can offer you the opportunity to teach within a forward thinking and very supportive team with excellent opportunities for professional and personal development.
The Governors of this thriving school wish to appoint two suitably qualified and enthusiastic full time teachers (part time will be considered) with a passion for excellence to join the Fitzwaryn team. As of February 1st 2013 Fitzwaryn School became part of The Propeller Academy Trust with Kingfisher Special School and Abingdon and Witney College. Whilst the vacant post is to teach within Fitzwaryn School, there may be a requirement to teach across the trust after consultation.
Experience in a special school is desirable although not essential. The ability to work within a team is vital. A full induction programme will be provided. This is an excellent opportunity to join an ambitious forward looking school. The post would suit someone who has a great deal of drive and ambition to further enhance the learning opportunities for our students.
We positively encourage applications from all sections of the community, including black and minority ethnic communities who may be under-represented in some areas of our workforce.
Fitzwaryn School and the Propeller Academy Trust are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. This post involves the type of work with children and young people that require applicants to undertake a Disclosure and Barring Service check. The possession of a criminal record will not necessarily prevent an applicant from obtaining this post. All cases are considered confidentially and according to the nature of the role and information disclosed
