Due to the retirement of our Headteacher, we are seeking a committed and dynamic new leader from September 2019 for our wonderful Special Needs School. We warmly invite applications from outstanding practitioners who want an opportunity to lead a successful school and build on its strengths to ensure continued success.
Are you ready to be our inspirational leader?
Oak View School is an all-age (3-19) specialist provision for SEND pupils including those with severe and complex needs as well as those from within the autistic spectrum. Situated in Loughton, on the edge of Epping Forest, the school is well-served by public transport and is a short walk from the Central Line underground.
Oak View is about to undertake a big expansion project. This new on-site building will comprise four additional classrooms and ancillary support facilities, including a Sensory Room, and will complement our existing outdoor sports area and indoor hydrotherapy pool.
We have Autism Accreditation and this year achieved Enhanced Practice Commendation. Oak View has recently converted to academy status and joined the Epping Forest Schools Partnership Trust as the only Special Needs provision among the Trust's 15 member schools.
