Science Class Teacher

An exciting opportunity has arisen for an inspirational class teacher in our growing SEMH provision on a permanent basis.

As a Teacher at the Brookfield School, you will have the chance to teach in a creative and inspiring way, work within a team of committed teachers and to help us shape the vision of the school as we continue to move forwards to being an outstanding provision.

Do you want to work in a school where the well-being of the pupils is at the heart of everything you do?  Are you a creative thinker; resilient and want to make a difference every day to the students you work with?

We are looking for:

  • A science teacher who is able to meet a range of complex needs including behaviour that can challenge
  • A positive role model
  • A team player who is able to show a flexible approach

We want to interview candidates who can evidence that they have experience of closing the gaps in learning for pupils who are experiencing challenge, particularly in regulating their behaviours. As importantly, you’re someone who is resilient, innovative and has the type of enthusiasm that’s infectious, so that you bring about change in a positive way. You’re also sensitive, respectfully challenging, patient and kind: just the type of teacher our students, pupils and community can relate to.

Brookfield School is a specialist school for children and young people with social, emotional and mental health needs, associated learning needs and challenging behaviours in Hereford.  We cater for 90 girls and boys between the ages of 6 and 16, and also have a primary intervention programme supporting children aged 5 – 11 to remain in mainstream settings or to assess children without an EHCP. 

We were placed into Special Measures in January 2020 after an Ofsted Inspection which highlighted significant failings of the previous management. A new Head Teacher was appointed in September 2019, a new Board of Trustees was appointed in November 2019 and already, very significant positive progress has been made on all counts required of the school.  Pupil, staff and families’ morale is good and we are very positive about the bright future of the school.

Visits to the school are welcomed from the 28th June to the 2nd July 2021. Please contact Wendy Roberts on 01432 265153 or by emailing to make an appointment


For all roles we require a minimum of two references. Please be advised that references will be requested prior to interview.


The Brookfield School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. All applicants must be willing to undergo safeguarding screening appropriate to the post, including checks with past employers and disclosures with the relevant body at an enhanced level. We are an equal opportunities employer.


Please contact Wendy Roberts, School Office for an application pack.
