• Can you work with challenging students and inspire them to make positive changes to their conduct?
• Can you support the delivery of a core academic curriculum at Key Stage 3 and 4?
• Can you lead, plan and deliver an innovative alternative curriculum to meet the needs of students at risk of exclusion?
• Can you lead other staff to bring about the very best experiences and outcomes for young people?
If so, read on! At Soar Valley, we pride ourselves on being a highly inclusive school. The Exchange was established to ensure we continue to meet the needs of a diverse student population and, in particular, to CHANGE the behaviour of those at risk of EXclusion, hence the name. It is rapidly becoming a crucial part of our provision for a small group of students, those with various barriers to learning and who can demonstrate challenging behaviours at times, and is already showing signs of being a great success in terms of the welfare and future success of these students. They receive teaching in key subjects, and also interventions which address behaviours and lead to reintegration back into the mainstream school in many cases, particularly at Key Stage 3.
We are now looking for a suitable candidate to take on the leadership and management of this valuable resource, and to join our very strong and effective Inclusion Team. The successful candidate will have experience of working with such students and proven leadership abilities. You will lead on this provision, managing other staff and having flexibility over the design of the offer, structures and procedures moving forward.
Further details are available on our website. Interested candidates are welcome to visit the school before making an application should they wish, in which case please contact Smita Stone, SLT PA
