We require a number of exceptional teachers across several of our sites who are passionate about providing the best possible education and care for vulnerable students. You will be based one of our newly built SEMH buildings that have opened this year which is part of a wider 45 million pound investment across the city. As we are a nurture based provision we follow a primary based model and as such these posts may be suitable for both secondary and Key Stage 2 practitioners. Subject specialism is not important as we deliver a thematic project based curriculum with specialists delivering subjects such as music and technology. This is an exciting opportunity to get back to teaching children and play a significant part of their overall development.
Springwell Leeds Academy is a new all through special school from key stage 1 to key stage 4 and as such, there is great potential for both support, professional development and promotion. All of our sites operate in line with best practise in an SEMH provision, which is a nurturing type curriculum model with significant investment in therapeutic and wrap around support for our students. These sites educate students from year 6 to year 11 so there is plenty of flexibility for staff to be deployed where their skills best suit.
This position would suit a teacher with a proven track record of exceptional practice, who is able to work with vulnerable pupils with social, emotional and mental health difficulties (SEMH). It would suit an individual who is passionate about making a real difference to student’s life chances and supporting them in achieving their potential in essential life skills, which is a high priority for Springwell Leeds. The ability to be creative and use imaginative flair to engage is essential, along with having resilience, drive and high expectations to inspire
students to achieve. As we are a growing Academy it may also provide an opportunity of further leadership opportunities in the future.
