PMLD Teacher Required

Pay Scale:               M1 to UPS plus SEN point (dependent upon relevant skills and experience in special education)

Contract Type:         Full time and permanent


Oaklands is an excellent special school serving the London Borough of Hounslow that provides specialist education to students with severe learning difficulties, profound and multiple difficulties and autism. From September 2018 we have a Primary school (New Oaks), Secondary school (High Oaks) and a specialist independent SEN College provision (Great Oaks). We can cater for students aged from 4 to 25 across the Oaklands group.


Oaklands is at an exciting point in its development. We recently relocated to our purpose built new school building (close to Osterley Tube Station and other public transport links) that offers state of the art facilities for our students. In time, the primary and secondary schools will be based on two sites with New Oaks Primary moving back to Woodlands Road once refurbishment is completed.


Our student numbers are rapidly expanding and as a result we would love to hear from teachers with experience of working with students with Profound and Multiple Learning Difficulties who are able to deliver a multisensory curriculum. You will need to possess the desire and motivation to make a difference to our students’ lives. We believe that all of our students are capable of making outstanding progress and we want to appoint individuals who share our belief.


We offer a comprehensive induction and Inset programme for our staff, a pension scheme and employee assistance programme.


Oaklands is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and anyone applying to work at the school is expected to share this commitment. This position is subject to a satisfactory fully enhanced DBS check and references being received. All positions are subject to the satisfactory completion of a 26 working week probation period.


Visits to the school are welcome. Please contact Lindsey Banks, HR Officer for an appointment on 0208 560 3569 (ext. 107)
