Cicely Haughton School caters for pupils aged 5-11 years with a range of social, emotional and mental health difficulties (SEMH). The school offers day and boarding places dependant on need.
The post involves supporting pupils within class groups under the line management of teachers. Your job overview confirms you will assume responsibility for classes in the occasional absence of teachers. Previous experience in a school would be an advantage but the successful candidate will have excellent levels of support and supervision. Staff with a sense of humour, high level of resilience and capable of maintaining high standards will find the job both stimulating and rewarding.
Staff need to present as excellent role models and through interacting positively with children assist in developing their self-esteem, self-worth and self-confidence i.e. qualities they need to play a positive role in their home communities.
Your approach and qualities are equally as important as your experience. Previous SEN experience is not necessary as relevant training will be provided. Our priority is to appoint outstanding practitioners who will make a positive contribution to the team. Please state clearly in your application your strengths and areas of expertise. Whoever you are you will be committed to promoting the joy of learning and the best educational opportunities for all pupils.
Manor Hall Academy Trust operates an inclusive ethos, and our trustees offer strong leadership to the academy and are committed to honest self-evaluation and continual improvement. They have a wide range of skills and provide challenge and support in equal measure.
Please note that references will be sought prior to interview.
We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. All staff are subject to an enhanced DBS check.
