Salary: £38,690 - £41,604 plus TLR2 £7017
Primary Intervention Provision Manager for children with Social, Emotional and/or Mental Health needs (SEMH), managed by Solihull’s Specialist Inclusion Support Service (SISS)
Starting September 2021
32.5 Hours per Week
We are advertising an exciting opportunity, for an outstanding, experienced, dynamic primary teacher and leader, who is 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, is setting up a brand new primary Intervention Provision for children with SEMH needs, which will be based in one of the schools in the north of the borough. The SEMH IP will be managed by SISS, who are looking to appoint, from September 2021, an Intervention Provision Manager .
The SEMH IP will be set up as a nurture group and offer intervention placements for children, firmly embedded in the nurture model. In the autumn term of 2021 you will work closely with the SISS SEMH Team Coordinator, SISS Manager, Head Teacher of the host school and Head Teachers of local schools, to finalise the setting up and development of this provision, putting everything in place ready for it to open to pupils in the second part of the autumn term 2021, aiming to be fully open to both Key Stage 1 and 2 pupils in February 2022.
You will lead and manage the team in the SEMH IP, which will include specialist teachers, teaching assistants, a Family Support Worker and Play therapist. Once the provision is established, as IP Manager, you will be responsible for the day to day operational management of the IP, the outcomes for the children placed in the provision and establishing strong links with schools throughout an intervention placement and whilst transitioning pupils back into their home schools.
We are looking to recruit a strong, creative leader, who has extensive knowledge and experience of using a range of evidence based interventions which work for children with SEMH needs. 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 be expected to travel around the borough of Solihull to liaise with schools, head teachers and parents when intervention placements are being considered, during placement and to ensure successful transitions back to a child’s home school.
You will find that we are an exceptionally supportive service to work for and working with us is both enjoyable and rewarding.
