Teacher with responsibility for Numeracy & Problem Solving

MPS/UPS + SEN + TLR2a (£2,873)

Required to start September 2023 or earlier if possible.


Leycroft Academy, based at Tile Cross, Birmingham is an inclusive and vibrant specialist primary school with 176 pupils on roll. The children all have a diagnosis on the Autism Spectrum. The school has high standards of teaching and learning and is committed to ensuring that all pupils achieve their full potential.


The school opened under the name Leycroft Academy in September 2021, following a de-amalgamation from Brays School, which previously operated over two sites.  A school has operated on the Tile Cross site in the current guise since February 2015.


This is an exciting time for the school, which has benefitted from significant investment in the last year with further work planned to improve the indoor and outdoor learning spaces. Within the school staff, we are dynamically developing our leadership structure and responsibilities and the introduction of this role is part of that development.  You will join our journey of improvement to play a key part in transforming the lives of our pupils.


We are looking for a highly effective, creative and inspirational classroom practitioner to support senior leaders with the leadership and development of Numeracy and Problem Solving across the school.


Your professional development will also be a key priority and you will have the support of a network of highly skilled and experienced senior leaders alongside the opportunities that will inevitably present themselves from being part of a developing trust.


Leycroft is part of Forward Education Trust (FET), an established and developing MAT of 6 special schools in Birmingham and Sandwell with plans for future expansion including a new school in Solihull. The trust is committed to ensuring the schools develop individual personalities, recognising their own particular characteristics and celebrating the many good things that happen day-to-day.
