SES Kite commenced on 4 September 2020 providing a new provision for post 18 year olds.


Teacher’s Pay Scale/Unqualified Teacher Pay Range + SEN enhancement of £2270

Specialist Education Services is looking for a new SEN Teacher/Instructor to join our team of teachers and TAs at Turnstone House, providing a personalised learning curriculum for the children and young people in our care.  An SEN specialism would be useful but not mandatory.  Specific subject experience is less important to us than a good teaching record and flexibility and creativity in curriculum delivery.

We are a company with a national reputation for excellence in our work with Looked After Children and outstanding staff support and development, underpinned by a “No Limits” approach.  Our two establishments, Avocet House and Turnstone House based on the Norfolk/Suffolk border, are dual registered as schools and children’s homes, both holding outstanding Ofsted judgements for education.

SES delivers a potent learning experience, with a radical and innovative approach.  We set no limits for the progress of our young people or for the development of our staff.  A post with SES is ideal for candidates who feel they would relish the opportunity to be part of a team that is creating exciting personalised learning programmes for children.

It is always worth a conversation with us if you are unsure whether this work is for you, or to get more information to help you make your decision.  If you are interested then please contact us on 01508 517000 or go to our contact page..

SES is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.  Appointments are dependent on a satisfactory enhanced DBS disclosure.

We are an equal opportunity employer with diversity and inclusion at the centre of everything we do.
