We can cater for students aged from 4 to 25 across the Oaklands group. We believe that all of our students are capable of making outstanding progress and we want to appoint individuals who share our belief.

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.

You will have an In-depth knowledge of SEN code of practice 2014 and the EHCP process, and should also demonstrate an understanding of outstanding classroom practice across the school ability range. This post is suitable for both teaching and non-teaching applicants.

We value our employees and offer excellent training and support along with a pension scheme, Employee Assistance Programme and other well-being benefits.

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.
