Job Description:

Richard Atkins is a warm, vibrant and inclusive school, at the heart of its community. With a purpose driven, high quality provision; we endeavour to foster fundamental values including growth, integrity, courage, excellence, curiosity and empowerment.

Are you interested in personalised learning?
Could you contribute towards the mainstream re-integration of pupils whose primary area of needs are influenced by insecure attachment and/or ADHD barriers?

Alongside preparing the right learning conditions through assessment, planning, and lesson delivery, you will be supporting pupils with the development of skills in self -regulation and more positive long-term outcomes.

If you believe this role is right for you, you will need to demonstrate a clear understanding of the dynamics of a range of family structures and be able to utilise a holistic, trauma responsive approach.

Using a therapeutic, nurturing approach, the learning you plan for and deliver will be guided by the pupils’ interests, the National Curriculum and a Psycho-Social Assessment tools that measures the social, emotional and mental health development of children and young people.

You will have a high degree of emotional intelligence where the proactive support that you offer to parents/carers, develop trusting relationships and allow non-judgemental, reflective conversations. This in turn will maximise the potential for pupils to be further supported, beyond the Retreat.

As a team player, you will be building mutual respect and trust by working closely with the Assistant Headteacher for Inclusion, together with a therapeutic team consisting of Teaching and Learning Assistants, Psychotherapists and Educational psychologists.

A strong admin background and knowledge of the SEND process of Assess, Plan, Do and Review, is also desirable as contributing to referrals, assessments and reporting on progress would feature strongly within this role.

We feel that a visit to the school is an essential part of the application process.
