SEND Recruitment

The Learning in Harmony Trust has some exciting and ambitious growth plans for our SEND provision in Newham, and we are looking for practitioners with a passion for working with young people with SEND, like you, to join us on our journey.   The expansion of our JFK Special School coupled with the opening of the new Connaught Special School in 2023 will create many opportunities for people to join our specialist provisions in a variety of roles.

We are proud of our fantastic personalised curriculum provision and the impact that it has on our pupils’ learning and development.  Our staff are passionate about this, we hope that you will be too.

In addition to putting the needs of every child at the heart of our special provision, the trust ensures that staff enjoy a first-class package of perks & benefits and a commitment to their own individual learning requirements, driven by our belief that our staff are our most valuable resource.

We have strong shared values across our mainstream and specialist Learning in Harmony Trust Schools and this drives a strong culture of support and collaboration that helps us secure the best possible outcomes for all students, and ultimately deliver on our mission to create a positive impact on the world and offer a life-changing experience for our pupils. 

We are very keen to hear from you if you feel that you share our values.
