The Orchard Hill College Academy Trust (OHCAT) is a multi-academy trust which became the sponsor of Nightingale Community Academy on 1 September 2016. The Trust is a specialist provider with a strong track record in contributing to improving the education offer for young learners with Special Educational Needs (SEN).

Nightingale Community Academy caters for learners aged 5-19 who have Social, Emotional and Mental Health as their primary SEN need. Some learners also have Autistic Spectrum Disorder, ADHD, or other learning difficulties. At Nightingale Community Academy we are committed to raising the expectations of our learner group, removing barriers to learning and delivering attainment at the highest level.

We are looking for someone with drive, creativity and a passion for learning support to join our team and contribute to our fast improving school. Academy Status brings new opportunities and we are looking for new team members who can add value by delivering 'quality first' learning experiences that challenge and engage. Experience of working with learners with SEN in either a mainstream or special setting is desirable but not essential. What is imperative is that you have high expectations, a love of challenge and a determination to make a difference to the lives of our learners.

Nightingale Community Academy is committed to a multi-disciplinary approach to meeting learners' needs, and promotes high quality professional development for all staff.

It is strongly advised that you contact the school to arrange a visit. To arrange, or to discuss the post further with the Principal or Assistant Head please email info@nightingaleca.org or phone to make an appointment. To apply for the role please send through your application to info@nightingaleca.org

Nightingale Community Academy is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
