What the school offers its staff

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 its pupils can be supported and empowered to succeed. We take pride in creating individual and personalised pathways for our students that are built around their varied needs, which 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 have developed a curriculum that provides opportunities for academic progression as well as vocational learning, whilst being engaging, creative, and innovative.

We see strong relationships as the key to our success – with students, parents, carers and the wider community and we ensure that our academy is a welcoming safe place for children, and staff, 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 other agencies and schools to make sure we do all we can to make learning and life the best it possibly can be.

Here at Springwell, we place a huge emphasis on professional development and choose to invest significantly in staff training at all levels. This means that, although experience of working in an SEMH setting would be an advantage, specialist support and training will be provided for outstanding teachers wishing to make the career fulfilling move into special education.

Further details about the role

Springwell Leeds Academy requires an exceptional, versatile teacher of Physical Education who is passionate about providing the best possible education and sporting experience for vulnerable students. This post will involve teaching PE up to GCSE level, or other suitable qualification, as well as delivering an exciting stimulating programme of study to younger students. Significant training, time and support is given to ensure that staff are confident in delivering high quality learning. All of our sites operate in line with best practise in an SEMH provision, which is a nurturing type curriculum model with significant investment in therapeutic and wrap around support for our students.

The successful candidate will have the opportunity to join our Academy with facilities of an external full size 3G Astro Turf football pitch, fully equipped sports hall and a fitness studio. Whilst you would be the only PE teacher on site, you would work closely as part of a team with the other PE teachers across our other sites. As you will be teaching both male and female students alongside support staff who can also monitor the changing rooms, this post is suitable for either male of female staff.

Commitment to safeguarding

Springwell Leeds is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

All candidates successfully selected for interview are required to complete a self-disclosure form.

The amendments to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 provides that when applying for certain jobs, certain convictions and cautions are considered ‘protected’. This means that they do not need to be disclosed to employers, and if they are disclosed, employers cannot take them into account.
