North East Essex Co-operative Academy (NEECA) is an Alternative Provision Academy for pupils aged 5-16, most of whom have found it difficult to be successful in a mainstream school. We are very proud of the provision we offer, which is down to the great work our teachers and support staff do to re-engage young people with education.
We are now looking for two highly motivated and talented English teachers to join our team to teach small groups as they study the core curriculum at Key Stages 3 and 4. These small classes benefit students enabling them to make good progress and allows our teachers to ensure that learning is tailored to individual student needs.
This post is either paid at MPS/UPS and attracts an SEN allowance of £4,359(SEN-2)
These posts are to start after Easter 2020 (but are available for immediate start).
Information about the School
NEECA is a 5 – 16 school for 180+ young people most of whom have found it difficult to be successful in a mainstream school. We are very proud of the provision we offer. Students are taught in small groups and they study the core curriculum at Key Stages 1, 2, 3 and 4. In addition to the core curriculum, we provide rich and varied extended curriculum opportunities ranging from music therapy, targeted literacy intervention, horse riding to vocational courses and work experience placements. Small classes benefit students and enable them to make good progress as staff can ensure that learning is tailored to individual student needs.
At Key Stage 3, in partnership with local schools, we focus on supporting young people to return to a mainstream school. At Key Stage 4, we focus on providing the opportunity for students to gain 5 GCSEs to ensure a successful transition to post 16 education or training. Many of the young people who attend NEECA arrive here at a point of crisis or conflict in their lives. It is our aim to ensure that we help them to regain a sense of confidence and self-esteem which allows them to compete on equal terms with their peers, despite the disruption to their education caused by leaving mainstream school.
