Emmbrook Infant and Junior Schools are two maintained schools that share well established, extensive school grounds and the Hearing Impaired Resource Unit is based within the schools to support hearing impaired children.

We would like to appoint another teacher of the deaf from 1st September 2018 who has a good knowledge of the national curriculum and a genuine enthusiasm and commitment for working with hearing impaired children of all abilities and to continue the excellent provision currently delivered within our hearing impaired resource unit.  We are a total communication setting and communicate with children in their preferred method of communication.  Signing skills would therefore be an advantage.

  • will have a flexible approach to meeting the individual needs of each child
  • is highly motivated and would like to be part of our small, hardworking school family
  • has excellent communication and organisational skills

  • has high expectations for pupils’ achievement, progress and behaviour

In return we offer:

  • welcoming and supportive schools graded ‘Good’ and improving by OFSTED
  • supportive and friendly teams of staff and governors
  • a strong ethos across the schools based on our shared values and high expectations

Visits to the schools and informal conversations with the Head Teachers are warmly welcomed and encouraged. Please call 0118 978 4259.
