Home to School Driver job summary

Welcome to our school,

Broomfield SILC is a generic special school for pupils aged 2 to 19 years with 3 sites: our main site and 2 partnership sites at Windmill Primary and Rodillian Secondary. The SILC is based in the South of Leeds and caters for a wide range of needs from moderate learning difficulties; severe learning difficulties; complex and multiple learning needs; Autism and social and emotional and mental health needs. Some students have additional needs – physical; medical; speech and language; visual, hearing or sensory impairment.   We are a very popular choice for parents and carers and currently have 228 pupils on roll.

Broomfield secured a ‘Good’ Ofsted in March 2023 where inspectors commented that leaders have ‘high ambitions’ and ‘high aspirations for all pupils’ and that ‘staff are proud to work in our school’.  I am very proud of our school community where staff are committed to supporting young people to fulfil their potential and prepare them fully for their future, particularly focusing on communication, independence, and emotional regulation.

We are looking for a part- time Home to School Transport driver (initially for a period of 12 months) who has the commitment, passion and resilience to make a difference to young peoples’ lives.  This is an exciting opportunity for anyone who is looking for a new challenge in a child focused, supportive environment where relationships are key. Perhaps you are semi-retired or looking to return to the work place.

Previous experience of working in a school or with children is not essential but we are seeking candidates with a D1 Driving Licence and experience of driving a larger vehicle in and around the Leeds/ Wakefield area. Successful candidates will be sympathetic to the needs of our children and willing to take on training to best understand how to support the children’s needs.

In return you will be provided with comprehensive Continuous Professional Development and will be supported by a professional, knowledgeable and friendly staff team who will ensure you are fully equipped to meet the needs of our diverse learners.

The successful candidate will have the following qualities:

  • D1 Driving Licence
  • Ability to relate well to children and young people
  • Excellent team player
  • Resilience
  • Ability to use initiative
  • Problem solving skills
  • Excellent communication skills with children, staff and parents
  • Positive attitude
  • Good English skills
  • Basic IT skills including use of e-mails
  • Willingness to learn, reflect and share effective practice with others

 In return we can offer:

  • Working with the most inspirational pupils who are respectful, creative and resilient
  • The support of a professional, knowledgeable and inclusive staff team
  • A comprehensive CPD programme with potential for career development
  • An opportunity to be an integral part of a young person’s journey and a real sense of achievement
  • A workplace that listens to all staff and values their skillset and contribution
