Trust Secondary SEMH Lead job summary

This is an exciting opportunity for a motivated, committed and child-centred Thrive or Trauma Informed Practitioner with a passion for making a difference to others.

You will be predominately based at Tudor Grange Academy, Dingle Lane, Solihull B91 3PD but you may be required to work at other locations from time to time within Tudor Grange Academies Trust.  This will only be the case where this has been mutually agreed.

You will work with key stage 3 and 4 students who experience social and emotional difficulties, taking a trauma-informed and relationship-based approach to understanding the impact of these difficulties and supporting these young people. Flexibility and enthusiasm are key. You must be qualified and experienced in the delivery of the Thrive or Trauma Informed Schools approach.

Tudor Grange Academies Trust is a family of academies with a shared ethos, common values and collective goals. We are working together in a model of meaningful, focused collaboration to achieve excellence in our schools. We are driven by four key values:

• Our children will live ‘happy, fulfilling lives’

• Outstanding teaching and learning are our core foci

• Outstanding Governance supports our schools

• Leadership and professionalism drive continuous improvement

The Trust has plans to expand and currently has 13 schools serving children from ages 2 -18. Schools support each other to provide excellent teaching and learning and provide a friendly, safe and caring educational environment.

“The recruitment process is robust in seeking to establish the commitment of candidates to support the school’s measures to safeguard and promote the welfare of children and to identity, deter or reject people who might pose a risk of harm to children or are otherwise unsuited to work with them. With this in mind, applicants must be willing to undergo child protection screening, including an online search and checks with past employers and the DBS.”

Commitment to safeguarding

Our organisation is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults. We expect all staff, volunteers and trustees to share this commitment.

Our recruitment process follows the keeping children safe in education guidance.

Offers of employment may be subject to the following checks (where relevant):
childcare disqualification
Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS)
online and social media
prohibition from teaching
right to work
satisfactory references
suitability to work with children

You must tell us about any unspent conviction, cautions, reprimands or warnings under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exceptions) Order 1975.
