The school is looking to build upon the work it does with vulnerable students and in particular those students who are at risk of being excluded from school.  We are keen to recruit a teacher who is as passionate as we are about giving these students the very best care, guidance, support and education so that they are prepared for the next stage of their lives.

The ideal candidate will have a broad and in-depth range of competencies and will work closely with a very small number of students and their families.  They will be responsible for curriculum intent, implementation and impact across a range of subjects. Whilst the teacher will have autonomy and be fully involved in forward planning they will need to be able to work closely with both the academic impact team and the pastoral support team. The teacher will be expected to be able to teach across a number of subjects up to GCSE Level.  This would be evidenced in the application form. Curriculum delivery will be built around the individual needs of the students they work with.

Excellent organisational and interpersonal skills will be required. We are looking for a person with energy, flexibility, creativity, is solution orientated and above all has a passion about this area of work.  A necessity is being able to forge excellent relationships with all stakeholders such as students, staff, multi-agencies, LA, parents, carers.  The successful candidate will also have a sound understanding of how best to access support for students with SEMH needs.

We seek applications from teachers who have significant experience in this area of work.  The  salary will reflect the experience of the teacher and would be suited to someone with solid experience on the UPS pay scale and the opportunity to progress and expand depending on the success of the new project.

We do have high expectations of staff and students, but we also expect them to be individuals who demonstrate a strong work ethic and kindness and decency at every level.  This is because we want all students to make really good progress and leave school with wonderful memories of their experiences.  We want our staff to enjoy their work and really see the value in what they do.  In return we seek every opportunity to develop staff.  The Hayfield School is a great place to work where all colleagues are supported and valued, parents are supportive and the pupils are so eager to achieve. We do have a track record of excellent outcomes but we are not resting on our laurels.  Indeed, we are embracing a changing educational landscape.  

The school is situated in Auckley near Robin Hood Airport.  It is a lovely part of Doncaster and really easy to get to and from.  Our staff come from as far away as North Leeds, Sheffield, Scunthorpe and Nottinghamshire.  It really is worth the journey.
