What skills and experience we're looking for
What the school offers its staff
Springwell Leeds aims to provide the best possible care and education that we can for children and young people with Social, Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH) needs. Unconditional Positive Regard is at the centre of what we do and we are creating an academy that is welcoming, caring, safe, warm and believes that all its pupils can be supported and empowered to succeed. We are creating individual and personalised pathways for our students that are built around their varied needs which will help them achieve positive outcomes and prepare them for their onward destinations into continuing education, work or training. In order to achieve this, we have developed a curriculum that provides opportunities for academic progression as well as vocational learning, whilst being engaging, creative, and innovative. We see strong relationships as the key to our success – with students, parents, carers and the wider community and we ensure that our academies are welcoming safe places for children to learn and prosper. We believe in working closely with our families and carers and welcome their support, but also realise that at times they will need our support too. We work closely with other agencies and schools to make sure we do all we can to make learning and life the best it possibly can be. Springwell Leeds places a huge emphasis on professional development and invests significantly in staff training at all levels. This means that, although experience of working in an SEMH setting would be an advantage, specialist support and training will be provided for outstanding teachers wishing to make the career-fulfilling move into special education. We already have a number of ex-mainstream teachers who have successfully made this transition.
Further details about the role
We require an exceptional teacher for our Key Stage 3 children who is passionate about providing the best possible education and care for vulnerable students. Our South site is part of a three-site SEMH provision in the city, which together form one school. As such, you will have experienced teachers both on site and at others for collaboration and support.
We were inspected for the first time in 2019, being judged to be good in all areas. We are one school across three sites across the city, forming an all through special school from key stage 1 to key stage 4 - as such, there is great potential for both support, professional development and promotion. All of our sites operate in line with best practice in an SEMH provision; we have a nurturing curriculum model with significant investment in therapeutic and wrap around support for our students.
This position would suit a teacher with a proven track record of exceptional practice, who is able to work with vulnerable pupils with social, emotional and mental health difficulties (SEMH). This position would suit an individual who is passionate about making a real difference to students’ life chances and supporting them in achieving their potential in essential life skills, which is a high priority for Springwell Leeds. The ability to be creative and use imaginative flair to engage is essential, along with having resilience, drive and high expectations to inspire students to achieve. As we are a growing Academy there may be opportunities for further leadership development in the future.
