Job Summary

About the school

Cleeve Meadow School is a new special free school which will provide highly specialised education for 120 students between 11 and 19 years of age, who have moderate learning difficulties and may have associated additional needs. These may include; speech, language and communication difficulties, autism, sensory impairments and physical disabilities.

The school will be particularly distinctive from existing local provision as it will work in dual partnership with its co-located mainstream school, Cleeve Park, wherever possible to maximise inclusivity of SEN students to mainstream education and providing access to mainstream teaching and shared facilities.

Cleeve Meadow aims to ensure that the students have the maximum opportunity to participate fully in society to enhance their life chances. The support and guidance students receive from staff will give them the confidence to learn independently.  The school aims to be a centre of excellence for its students, parents/carers, staff, local authorities and the wider community.
