What skills and experience we're looking for

We are looking to appoint an enthusiastic, creative and dedicated Deputy SEMH Resource Provision Manager to be part of the Inclusion and Support Faculty. Crestwood Community School is one school with two separate campuses serving central Eastleigh with a large Inclusion and Support Faculty which is overseen by the Achievement Leader for Inclusion Support. The successful applicant will be joining Crestwood at an exciting time as the faculty is developing and continuing to grow in not only size but also expertise. We are currently oversubscribed, this is due to our reputation in the local community for our culture of care, pastoral systems and SEN support. We are looking for somebody who can continue to contribute to this culture and support the provision of pupils in order to meet their needs.

The current Deputy SEMH Resource Provision manager is leaving the post after securing a teacher training position at Crestwood Community School. They have stated:

“Working in inclusion support has been an incredible journey of personal growth. Being there for students with diverse needs, helping them flourish, has been the most fulfilling part of my job. It's a role that holds a special place in my heart and motivates me to continue working with children in the future. From moments of pure joy to unexpected challenges, every day brings something new and meaningful.”

The SEMH Resource Provision is a specialist environment situated on the Cherbourg Campus which is fully integrated into the mainstream school. Crestwood Community School is highly successful in supporting students with complex needs, this has been highlighted by the most recent Ofsted report. Currently there are 94 students on roll who have an Education, Health and Care Plan and 8 students are placed in the SEMH Resource Provision. Pupils who have an Education, Health and Care Plan are able to access the SEMH Resource Provision through placement by the SEMH panel, these students are allocated additional funding to access a higher level of provision whilst accessing mainstream education. The SEMH Resource Provision is a safe and supportive environment for pupils with complex needs and is highly successful in allowing students to access a package of support which allows them to feel a sense of belonging and success within the school. The role of the Deputy SEMH is vital in creating provision for the students who access the SEMH Resource Provision and those under the umbrella of the Resource Provision. The ideal candidate will have experience in working with students with complex needs, delivered small group interventions and have undertaken training in an area of need. They will also have knowledge and experience in understanding Education, Health and Care Plans and attending annual reviews or be willing to develop their expertise in this area.

The Deputy SEMH Resource Provision Manager is overseen by the Resource Provision Manager who has operational oversight over the running of the SEMH Resource Provision. The Deputy Resource Provision Manager must be able to work in a team with the Resource Provision Manager and work towards shared priorities and objectives set by the Achievement Leader for Inclusion Support. The ideal Deputy candidate must be able to work collaboratively with the Resource Provision Manager and staff in the wider faculty, including cross campus collaboration. The role of the Deputy Resource Provision Manager is varied and adapted daily depending on the needs of the pupils who access the provision. This role is ideal for a candidate who is looking for a challenge and career progression in the future.

The Deputy SEMH Resource Provision Manager position requires someone who can empathise with students whilst holding them to high expectations. Good communication skills and an ability to clarify and explain instructions clearly are essential. You must be professionally discreet, have well developed interpersonal skills and a good sense of humour. The ability to build appropriate and effective relationships with staff, students and parents is essential. All applicants must have good literacy and numeracy skills and the physical stamina to effectively support a range of students.

They particularly value school leader's careful consideration of their workload and well-being so that they can focus their efforts fully on pupils’ education.” In addition, Ofsted report that “many pupils, staff and parents describe the school as a ‘big family’. This is a happy school, where staff and students want to be. The #Crestwoodfamily pervades through everything we do.

As a school we take staff well being seriously. We offer staff the following:

  • wellbeing weeks, with no commitments scheduled after school
