Contract: Fixed Term until 31st August, 2025 on a 52 week contract, Full time (with the potential of becoming permanent).

Situated approximately 3km from Brighton’s city centre, Bevendean is surrounded by beautiful downland, and set in extensive grounds with wide open spaces, Bevendean School enjoys a peaceful and unspoilt location.

We have an exceptional staff team of Class Teachers, Nursery to Year 6; including a facility for deaf children. Our Nursery offers 15 hours free nursery provision each week. We have a team of Learning Mentors, Teaching Assistants and Higher-Level Teaching Assistants supporting in mainstream classes. Our deaf provision has 2 qualified Teachers of the deaf and 7 Teaching Assistants.

All our staff value friendliness, team-work, and support as some of their core values, and this is clearly apparent when you visit our school. Our aim is to provide exciting and high-quality teaching and learning which challenges and motivates children to really become involved in their learning (‘Teachers plan ambitions and interesting lessons for all pupils; pupils remember what they have learned; misconceptions are picked up very swiftly and help is promptly given; challenge is given to all pupils’ - Ofsted, December, 2019). Pupils are taught a broad and rich curriculum that is enhanced with as many trips, visits and experiences as possible. We believe it is vital that pupils get to see and do as much as possible. Not only does this create aspiration but we know that if you do something, you can talk about it and you can therefore write about it.

We are a community school and believe it is essential that the community are involved in the school; we strive for opportunities to make links and engage all stakeholders. We know that this helps to get the best outcomes for Bevendean pupils.

We are extremely fortunate to have expansive surroundings, great facilities and are well staffed and resourced.  Bevendean is proud to have well behaved and happy children in a caring and supportive environment in which all succeed and thrive.
