Job Description


The Unicorn School wishes to appoint a part time Y2/3 teacher to join this thriving, forward-looking school. The successful candidate will have an interest or an understanding and experience of working with pupils with specific learning difficulties such as dyslexia, dyscalculia and dyspraxia. The successful candidate will also have a genuine passion for getting the very best out of our children.

The candidate must have the ability to teach a mixed class of 6-8 Y2/3 Mixed age children.

This post is for 3 days per week from Monday to Wednesday starting either in January 2018 or April 2018. We are happy to wait for the right candidate.

The Unicorn School is a leading, specialist day school for girls and boys aged 6 to 14 years, who have dyslexia, dyscalculia, dyspraxia or who need support with speech and language. We are based in Abingdon, serving families in Oxfordshire and neighbouring counties. We follow the National Curriculum, adapting the way we deliver our teaching to make the material accessible to pupils with specific learning difficulties. We are extending our provision to offer the children the opportunity to stay on at the Unicorn to complete their GCSEs.

What do we do?

The school provides a nurturing environment in which every child is helped to build self-confidence, appreciate their learning difficulties and develop their own personal learning style.

Our goal is for every child to flourish at the Unicorn, leaving with the confidence to learn, the appetite for study, and the desire to continue to succeed.

How do we do it?

We employ experienced, highly qualified teachers with a passion for special educational needs. We teach in small classes, averaging 10 to 12 pupils, and do not stick rigidly to year groups.

Unique to The Unicorn, our provision gives each child one individual session with their regular one to one tutor every school day. In addition, speech and language therapy and occupational therapy are provided in-house, where appropriate.

Our results stem from a focus on building self-confidence and providing a tailored approach for each child, integrating all aspects of learning under one roof. We celebrate positive outcomes. We engage with parents and generate a team effort in support of every child.

We make a difference. For further information on our school then please visit: www.unicornoxford.co.uk
