The successful candidate to this post will have a good range of relevant experience and a willingness to learn new skills and systems. The post requires a flexible attitude and a capacity to work with children who have Social, Emotional and Mental Health needs. This is a very challenging and rewarding environment and we would encourage candidates to come and visit the school in preparation for applying to this role.

What the school offers its staff

Managing a large school site can be a complicated and relentless task requiring flexibility and persistence. The appointed person will be directly responsible for the site both on a day to day basis and planning to ensure maintenance is undertaken correctly and in line with all relevant Health and Safety regulations. The post holder will work closely with the school leadership team to achieve the needs of the school and its curriculum. Day to day tasks may include planned repairs to the infrastructure of the building, emergency repairs and cleaning as required. Gritting of the site in colder weather, daily checks around the building, gardening, painting, locking and unlocking the site.

We are a high-performing, SEMH special school which was judged as Outstanding in every area by Ofsted in November 2016. We are not remotely complacent about this and are committed to ensuring that the quality of provision we offer to our students is consistently excellent. We believe that such sustained success is a team effort and every member of staff contributes to that level of excellence. We are a relatively small school, but we still have a distinctly ‘family’ atmosphere. Visitors to the School often comment on the friendly and supportive ethos.
