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.
