Required for Easter 2022

We have an exciting opportunity, for two outstanding, experienced and dynamic teachers, who are passionate about enabling children with social emotional and mental health needs to achieve their potential and be the best young person they can be.
Solihull LA, as part of a range of initiatives, has set up a new primary Early Intervention Provision called REFRESH for children with SEMH needs, which is based in on the site of Coleshill Heath Primary School, Chelmsley Wood. REFRESH is managed by SISS, who are looking to appoint, from Easter 2022
- Specialist Teacher for the KS1 classroom
- Specialist teacher for the KS2 classroom.
REFRESH is set up as a nurture group and offers intervention placements for children, firmly embedded in the nurture model. The KS1 classroom will operate alongside our newly established KS2 provision and complete our offer. The KS1 teacher will work closely with the teacher in Charge and SISS SEMH Team Coordinator to finalise the setting up of the KS1 provision, putting everything in place ready for it to open to pupils. Whilst the KS2 teacher will be expected to shape and develop our existing KS2 offer which opened in November 2021.
As Nurture Group teachers, you will lead and manage your respective team in REFRESH, under the direction of the Teacher in Charge. You will be responsible for the day to day operational management of your Nurture classroom and provision, the outcomes for the children placed there and for establishing strong links with schools and families throughout an intervention placement and whilst transitioning pupils back into their home schools.
We are looking to recruit strong, creative teachers, who have extensive knowledge and experience of using a range of evidence based interventions which work for children with SEMH needs. You will be able to match learning in its widest sense to the age and stage of development of the pupils and be able to adapt and plan your curriculum to incorporate a strong play based element. You will also have relevant experience of working successfully and collaboratively with a range of stakeholders, including children, families, schools, other professionals and multidisciplinary teams.
You will mainly be based at REFRESH, but will be expected to travel around the borough of Solihull to liaise with schools, head teachers and parents, when required by the Teacher in Charge.
You will find that we are an exceptionally supportive service to work for and working with us is both enjoyable and rewarding.
