Valence School

Maths Lead Teacher - Full Time or Part Time


Full Time 1.0 FTE or Part Time 0.7 FTE

MPR/UPR + TLR2 (£5,000) + SEN allowance

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

We have an exciting opportunity to teach the maths curriculum across our semi-formal and formal pathway and you will have overall responsibility for numeracy across the school. Days and hours are flexible and can be agreed.

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.  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 maths teacher who can help our students navigate the world around them and achieve their full potential.

This post is suitable for an experienced teacher 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. 

This post is suitable for an Early Career Teacher (ECT) who would like to progress quickly within the profession.  We are also interested in hearing from you if you are an early career Maths Teacher and wanting to take on a lead role straight away.  Full support for this will be provided so that your specialism and passion make you successful, and you will be mentored by experienced leaders.

Visits to the school would be warmly welcomed.
