Another crucial aspect of the role is in the academic intervention work 1 to 1 or in school groups to help students to “catch up” with the progress in English and maths. As such this is a crucial role and you will be working under the direction of the phase leaders in Key Stage 3 & 4. It is important that you have worked in a school setting and ideally understand the needs of an SEMH child. Full training will be given and the post may suit someone who wants to take the next step towards a teaching career.

Successful candidates will be responsible for: 

  • Working with the classroom teachers closely to ensure outstanding progress in learning
  • Support and leading nurture, interventions and small group learning in maths and English.
  • Overseeing practical, kinaesthetic, sport, physical/outdoor activities where required
  • Supporting the development of resilience, self-esteem, social skills and strategies for regulation
  • Covering for absent colleagues as required. 

Post holders require: 

  • An appropriate qualification for leading a classroom setting 
  • At least level 2 qualifications in English and Maths 
  • Experience of working in an educational setting 
  • The ability to build positive relationships and have unconditional positive regard for children and young people 
  • Understanding and experience of strategies to support children and young people with SEMH and SEND desirable 
  • Ability to personalise learning 
  • Driving licence desirable for possible traveling between sites.

Unconditional Positive Regard is at the centre of what we do. As an academy we are welcoming, caring, safe, warm and believe that all our pupils can be supported and empowered to succeed. We create individual and personalised pathways for pupils that are built around their varied needs. 

We believe in working closely with our families and carers and welcome their support, but also realise that at times they will need our support too. We work closely with other agencies and schools to make sure we do all we can to make learning and life the best it possibly can be.

At Wellspring Academy Trust we believe that every school is unique, because it has a unique history, it serves a unique community context and is full of unique individuals. We value and celebrate the unique identities of our academies. We encourage them to innovate, create and develop their uniqueness because we want others to learn from them. Excellence is about diversity, not conformity. We do not believe that one size fits all.
