What skills and experience we're looking for
What the school offers its staff
Springwell Leeds is a new provision for children
and young people with Social, Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH) needs for the
city of Leeds. We are an academy for 340 5-16 year olds on three sites across
the city. Our three brand new buildings have been open since 2019.
Our aim is to provide the best possible care and education that we can for children and young people with Social, Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH) needs. Unconditional Positive Regard is at the centre of what we do and we are creating an academy that is welcoming, caring, safe, warm and believes that all of its pupils can be supported and empowered to succeed.
We are creating individual and personalised pathways for our students that are built around their varied needs and that will help them achieve positive outcomes and prepare them for their onward destinations into continuing education, work or training. In order to achieve this we are developing a curriculum that provides opportunities for academic progression as well as vocational learning, whilst being engaging, creative, and innovative.
We see strong relationships with students, parents, carers and the wider community as the key to our success – and we ensure that our academies are welcoming safe places for children to learn and prosper. We believe in working closely with our families and carers and welcome their support, but also realise that at times they will need our support too. We work closely with Leeds City Council and other agencies and schools to make sure we do all we can to make learning and life the best it possibly can be.
