Oak Hill School

Staff Vacancies

TEACHER OF ART

(MPS + SEN 1 or 2)

Oak Hill School is a small provision for pupils aged 11-16, all of whom have an EHCP in the category of Social, Emotional and Mental Health.  We currently have 36 pupils on roll (rising to 40 within the next year).  Art is an important and popular subject for our pupils, in both the academic and therapeutic sense.  We are looking for an Art teacher to join us as soon as possible to run our thriving Art department, delivering lessons to our interesting and challenging pupils.

Oak Hill School is a warm and welcoming school where the pastoral care is at the forefront of everything we do.  We build close relationships with our pupils and their families and this gives us the bedrock from which we can work with our cohort to help them all achieve their potential and make their school days happy, fulfilling and purposeful.  This nurturing environment is extended to our staff team where we pride ourselves on looking after our teachers and support staff in the same way as we do our pupils.  We have a very low staff turnover, which we believe is a result of the happy and supportive ethos along which the school runs.

All pupils study art at KS3 and many go on to take the subject at GCSE level.   Many pupils find art a useful medium by which to express their emotions and we are keen to encourage this.  All lessons have a high staff to pupil ratio - a member of our team of highly experienced and skilled LSAs and support staff supports teachers in every lesson.   We have high expectations of our pupils in terms of behaviour and work output and all staff are trained and encouraged in their development of effective behaviour management skills.

If you are interested in joining our school we would love to hear from you. For further details and an application form please telephone Mrs Nicola Baker on 020 8361 4639 or email nicola.baker@apoakhill.org.uk

We comply fully with the ethos of safer recruitment and undertake all relevant checks. References will be sought before interview.  We welcome visits to the school prior to application and/or interview.  Closing date for applications is 5pm on Friday November 30th 2018. Interviews will be held the following week.
