Valence School

Science Teacher


Full Time 1.0 FTE

MPR/UPR + TLR2* + SEN allowance

Are you an innovative and passionate science teacher with high expectations?

If so, we have an exciting opportunity for you to teach a broad science curriculum, including all three sciences, in a fully accessible laboratory to students with a range of disabilities.  *Additional responsibility of leading STEM projects across the school is available for the right candidate.

Valence School is a KCC Foundation day and residential special school for students aged 4 to 19 with physical disabilities, complex medical needs and associated communication and learning difficulties.  We are part of the Kent Special Educational Needs Trust (KsENT).

You will make a tangible difference to the lives of students at our school, teaching across two of the three learning pathways in the secondary school.  Alongside teaching science, you will be a valued part of the whole school community, who work together closely to ensure we meet our students’ individual needs.

Students at Valence behave impeccably and are highly motivated; we are looking for a science teacher who can help our students navigate the world around them and achieve their full potential.

This post is suitable both for early career and more experienced teachers who would like to add an additional dimension to their practice, or an ambitious teacher looking to take on a new challenge.  Previous experience of teaching SEND would be an advantage but not essential.  Visits to the school are strongly advised.
