Job Summary

Working in a school can be one of the most rewarding, exhilarating and exciting places to be. We also recognise that it can be frustrating and hard work! We spend a considerable amount of time at work, so it is vital that we are in a place where we feel supported, fulfilled and can enjoy our working life. We believe we have this at Cleeve Meadow.

Cleeve Meadow School is an ambitious and dynamic new SEND school providing a highly specialised education for 120 students between 11 and 19 years of age, who have moderate learning difficulties and may have associated additional needs. Our school is a place where traditional values meet innovation. We have staff who are passionate about the very best education for our young people, we aim to inspire learners to seek what they do not yet know.

You will find our school has a thoroughly inclusive approach to all we do, celebrating varied successes of individuals and groups regularly. Together, working in partnership with parents and carers, we successfully foster and develop a positive attitude in our ] young people and a belief in achieving beyond their expectations.

The school is particularly distinctive from existing local provisions as it works 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. Staff also benefit from partnership working and shared professional development.

Cleeve Meadow aims to ensure that all 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 and strive to achieve. The school aims to be a centre of excellence for its students, parents/carers, staff, local authorities and the wider community.
