Working in a school can be one of the most rewarding, exhilarating and exciting places to be. We also recognise that it can be frustrating and hard work! We spend a considerable amount of time at work, so it is vital that we are in a place where we feel supported, fulfilled and can enjoy our working life. We believe that we have this at Cleeve Meadow.
Cleeve Meadow School is an ambitious and dynamic new SEND school providing a highly specialised education for 120 students between 11 and 19 years of age, who have moderate learning difficulties and may have associated additional needs. Our school is a place where traditional values meet innovation. We have a staff who are passionate about the very best education for our young people, we aim to inspire learners to seek what they do not yet know. You will find our school has a thoroughly inclusive approach to all we do, celebrating varied successes of individuals and groups regularly. Together, working in partnership with parents and carers, we successfully foster and develop a positive attitude in our young people and a belief in achieving beyond their expectations.
The school is particularly distinctive from existing local provision as it works in dual partnership with its co-located mainstream school, Cleeve Park, wherever possible to maximise inclusivity of SEN students to mainstream education and providing access to mainstream teaching and shared facilities. Staff also benefit from partnership working and shared professional development.
Cleeve Meadow aims to ensure that all students have the maximum opportunity to participate fully in society to enhance their life chances. The support and guidance students receive from staff will give them the confidence to learn independently and strive to achieve. The school aims to be a centre of excellence for its students, parents/carers, staff, local authorities and the wider community.
If you are seeking to be an inspirational and innovative professional who can motivate and inspire students and really make a difference, then Cleeve Meadow is for you. We require someone who will share our passion and ambition to provide an excellent education to our students who are engaging and rewarding to work with.
As school leaders, we see our role as enabling you to be your best self in the classroom and develop as a teacher. As the expert in your field our role is to ensure you have the very best conditions to get the very best from our students. We believe in getting the work/life balance right and have an open door policy for all staff. We have a strong commitment to staff wellbeing and see work/life balance as a vital element to a fulfilling career. You will receive ongoing support and CPD opportunities across the school and wider TKAT family.
