Ferndene is a purpose built in-patient centre which provides assessment and treatment for 12 - 18 year olds with complex health, behavioural and emotional needs including those with a learning disability.

The school is strongly committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. The successful applicant will be required to obtain an enhanced Certificate of Disclosure from the Disclosure and Barring Service and go through a range of other recruitment checks.

As this post involves working with children and dealing with sensitive information, written references will be taken up and made available to interviewers before the final selection stage, even if you indicate otherwise.
