Further details about the role

Please note, there are two teacher vacancies - one in a location in Stoke and one at a location in Norfolk.

Ormiston Academies Trust (OAT) is delighted to have secured funding to set up two new, short term Managed Intervention Centres (MIC’s) aimed at reducing the risk of permanent exclusion and behavioural difficulties among pupils at participating OAT schools in Stoke-on-Trent and Norfolk. The programme will be accessed by 8-10 schools, delivered by MIC staff under the leadership of OAT for a pilot period of three academic terms from April 2024, and independently evaluated. The role will be offered on a fixed term basis initially for the duration of the funding period.

This project will make a real difference to the most vulnerable students and is aimed at improving the behaviour of those who have been identified as at risk of suspension and/or exclusion. Staff will take part in training that includes the ARC framework for trauma informed practice which teaches children strategies to manage and control their emotional responses and encourages children to express their feelings in safe and appropriate ways.

We are looking for a dedicated teacher for each site who will have specific responsibility for the learning and progress of pupils referred to the MIC.

Commitment to safeguarding

OAT is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and the expectation is that all staff will share this commitment. Therefore, the successful applicant will be required to undertake an enhanced DBS and barred list check.
