You will be employed by the trust which consists of five schools led by Sidney Stringer Academy. The schools are Radford Primary Academy, Ernesford Grange Community Academy, Riverbank Academy (Special School), Sidney Stringer Primary School and Sidney Stringer Academy.

This post is aimed at working in a small team to positively support our most high profile behaviour students. Your role will be to provide a safe and calm environment where students can de-escalate and we can re-engage them in the business of learning. This may involve supporting them in lessons or creatively differentiating their work to be completed in a more bespoke environment. It will also involve the delivery of our behaviour programme and the facilitation of some lessons within the behaviour provision.

You will liaise with teaching staff, year leads, SENCOs and parents in order to plan for, track and monitor the key identified students. You will be part of a team which looks behind the behaviours and tries to meet the needs of our students in order to work with them effectively. We are the team who bridge that gap between pastoral and academic and pride ourselves on helping students to value themselves and their work.

We are looking for someone who has experience of working with young people. Someone who understands the pressures that today’s young people are under and who is incredibly vigilant at noticing potential safeguarding issues.

You will need a positive outlook and a high level of personal resilience but you will be supported within an incredible SEND team who always want the best for the students.
