The SHINE Centre educates up to 15 secondary age students, in a bespoke Learning Unit, located within The Winstanley School, but self-contained, with its own dedicated staff. The centre runs as a ‘school within a school’. The SHINE Centre name reflects the values that are already embedded within The Winstanley School – Supporting others, Hard work, Independence, Never giving up, and Excellence.
We have high expectations of all staff within the LiFE Multi Academy Trust, which makes it an exciting and innovative place to work. We understand that this role will require support and encouragement to design what we hope becomes the ‘Blue Print’ for how in-school SEMH resources should be run. Student and staff success is vitally important to us and we will endeavour to provide the environment and leadership conditions to let you do what you do best.
