What the school offers its staff

The Sheffield Inclusion Centre provides education and emotional/social support for young people who have been permanently excluded from mainstream schools. We work with all key stages, KS1 to KS4. We have to be holistic in our approach as we work not just with the individual, but with the family and ensure a team around the young person is in place at a very difficult time. The majority of our young people have experienced trauma and as such we are very much a trauma informed school. The aim is for young people to reintegrate back into mainstream education. We also support mainstream schools with preventative provision in order to slow down the rate of permanent exclusion across the city. No two days are the same. You will need to be a good team player, but confident to work on your own initiative. We will not pretend that this is not challenging place to work but it is also one of the most rewarding and professionally fulfilling.

Commitment to safeguarding

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare and safety of children and vulnerable adults and expect all staff to share this commitment. All successful candidates will be required to complete an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service Check.

All our children have been permanently excluded from mainstream school. Some children are reintegrated back to mainstream. Young people come to us with unmet Special Educational Needs and in some cases a full assessment of need is carried out resulting in an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP).

We feel we are the most important school in Sheffield with some of the most vulnerable and at the same time vibrant children in the city. Many of our children have unsettled home lives and mental health difficulties. Therefore, it is important to role model behaviour and always show children unconditional positive regard.

Everything we do is based on relationships and building trust.

Our children have not had the best start to their young lives in education so we need to help them become ready to learn and then to accelerate their learning so we provide a brighter future with improved life chances.
