Forward Education Trust is a Multi Academy Trust comprising of Brays School, The Bridge School and Hallmoor School in Birmingham. Brays School also has a wider national remit and works with professionals across England and beyond through its varying roles as a National Teaching School. The School also provides outreach support to mainstream children in Central and East Birmingham.

At Brays School we specialises in the education of primary-aged pupils with a range of diagnosis. The School is split across two sites, one of which caters for those with a diagnosis on the Autistic Spectrum. The other site takes children with a range of physical, learning and Sensory difficulties. The School has high standards of teaching and learning, and is committed to ensuring that all pupils achieve their full potential. This vacancy is based at our Tile Cross site that specialises in the education and support of children who have a diagnosis on the Autistic Spectrum and communication difficulties. Due to further expansion in September 2019 we are looking, to recruit a teacher who has a passion for Maths and who would be able to share their experience and knowledge to others across both sites.

As stated the right candidates must have a strong passion for Maths. We are looking for a teacher who can lead and oversee Maths and applied learning opportunities. You will be responsible for the development and monitoring of Maths as well as having your own class to teach. Our pupils work to P level 1 to 4, at P5 they are then assessed against the A2E continuums and each class is set by similar sensory or ability range. The right candidate will want to work with more complex learners and be leading a class of around 10-12 pupils in school. They will have dedicated TLR time in additional to the time for class teacher planning & preparation. This role would be suited to a strong mainstream KS1 teacher or someone with special school experience.

Some experience of developing leadership would be welcomed and our senior leaders are supportive of those new to middle leadership. Access to our teaching school middle leadership programme is available. This post is not suitable for NQT’s.
