We seek to appoint a Communication Support Worker within our Special Needs Department, as from September 2017, a Year 7 child is joining our school with an Educational Health Plan due to impaired hearing.  The ideal candidate will have experience working with children and young adults with hearing impairment.  BSL Level 2 is essential for this position.  

The Deanes has recently joined the Challenger Multi-Academy Trust, in what is an exciting period of growth with schools in Bedfordshire and Essex.  The Deanes is a small secondary school where each and every one of our students can feel happy, respected and known as an individual within our safe and accepting community.  We aim to create a positive and respectful environment for all members of The Deanes, with consistently high expectations and standards.  Our curriculum caters for individual strengths and needs, enabling every student to make outstanding progress and provide them with extensive opportunities for personal development.

The well-being of our staff is a high priority.  All staff at The Deanes have access to high quality training to further develop their teaching practice. Staff can take advantage of free gym membership and we are fortunate to have an onsite children’s nursery which may be able to accommodate your childcare needs. 

The Deanes is well situated in South East Essex, with good links to public transport.  We are situated within ten minutes of Benfleet and Rayleigh Rail Stations, where a 45 minute train journey will take you into London.  There is also ample car parking onsite.

The Deanes is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people, and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Successful candidates will be subject to DBS clearance.

We welcome visits to the school prior to application.  If you would like to take a tour, meet some of our students and discuss the position further, please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Oliver.
