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 an experienced and knowledgeable HR Manager to work with the Senior Leadership Team and Governing body to provide strategic and operational HR for the SILC.
