Some experience teaching in special schools is preferred, although the right attitude and ability to work with and understand our students need is very important.

The school meets the needs of students with profound and multiple learning difficulties (PLMD), severe learning difficulties (SLD), moderate learning difficulties (MLD), neurological impairments and complex needs.

Information about the School

Lancaster School is an Academy special school for up to 100 students aged 14-19 with a range of complex needs: severe learning difficulties (SLD) and profound and multiple learning difficulties (PMLD), neurological impairments, complex physical and medical difficulties, alongside students with moderate learning difficulties, who may need additional social and emotional support before transferring to local colleges at post-19.

Lancaster School is part of the SEN Trust Southend which opened as a formal partnership on 1 September 2017. The four special schools, The St. Christopher School, Kingsdown School, Lancaster School and St. Nicholas School have always worked closely together to create a strong group of special schools which aim to meet the majority of needs of those pupils who require specialist support in a specialist educational school with Southend. We created the Multi-Academy Trust to help us continue this work.

All appointments are subject to safer recruitment requirements to ensure the safeguarding of children and young people. All positions will involve appropriate checks and clearances.
