Come and join our essential ‘Team around the Child’ and be part of the successful ‘Broad Horizons Education Trust’. We have vacancies for SEMH Key Workers at Bure Park Specialist Academy in Great Yarmouth.

Bure Park Specialist Academy is a residential special school for boys in the age range 7 – 16 with social, emotional and mental health difficulties. Our students arrive with disrupted educational experiences and complex difficulties and our team will be responsible for ensuring that they leave with superb outcomes academically, socially and behaviourally. The Academy is part of Broad Horizons Education Trust and we share their vision that improving the life chances of all pupils is at the heart of all we do.

We are looking to recruit SEMH Key Workers who will be responsible for the care and leisure time of groups of students under the supervision and the direction of the Senior SEMH Key Worker team.

The Academy runs a very strong staff support and development programme. The successful candidates will be reliable, persistent and loyal, with a good sense of humour and strength of character. The academy is looking for people who have a variety of interests outside the curriculum that would lend themselves to leading activities with children.
