Job description

We require two exceptional teachers of key stage 1 or 2 who are passionate about providing the best possible education and care for vulnerable students. You will be based at either our North site in Tinshill or East site in Seacroft which are part of three sites but a one school SEMH provision in the city. We have recently moved the primary provision into our three new buildings to create three new through school provisions providing continuity for our children’s education whilst at Springwell. As such you will have experienced teacher both on site and at others for collaboration and support. Springwell Leeds Academy is now three years old and last summer we were inspected for the first time, being judged to be good in all areas. We are one school across three sites of an all through special school from key stage 1 to key stage 4 and as such, there is great potential for both support, professional development and promotion. All of our sites operate in line with best practise in an SEMH provision, which is a nurturing type 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). It would suit an individual who is passionate about making a real difference to student’s 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 it may also provide an opportunity of further leadership opportunities in the future.
