POST 1 – Application for the post of Teacher with TLR2 Responsibility for English

MPR/UPR + TLR 2 (£2721) + SEN Allowance

NQT’s are not eligible to apply for this post.

About the Role
Skilts School is a special school for up to 80 primary aged boys between the age of 5-11 with Social Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH) needs. Some of the children also have diagnoses of ASD and ADHD and all travel from the Birmingham area to attend our day provision.

All of our pupils have an Education Health and Care Plan which indicates the key areas of child development. Teachers are supported by experienced teaching assistants to ensure that our children make expected progress against those targets.

We are looking to appoint a committed, enthusiastic and talented teacher to work within the school. The successful candidate will have a proven track record of teaching in the primary phase and have secure behaviour management strategies. The school is making rapid improvements in all areas of the Ofsted framework since it was subject to a direct academy order and will academise with Forward Education Trust c2020.

The latest Ofsted reports states that there is ‘palpable shared drive and commitment from staff in wanting to improve the school’ and that ‘staff spoke highly of the professional development opportunities they have
received’. We are seeking candidates who enjoy working with others to share this journey of improvement and who are keen to develop their practice in this specialist area of education.

The ideal candidate will have proven experience of teaching pupils with SEMH needs and will be able to work collaboratively with support staff and senior leaders in order to plan and deliver high quality educational provision for our young people. They will have empathy for the complex needs of our pupils and be resilient to insults; understanding that at times our pupils can display challenging behaviours which are a feature of their special educational needs. The applicant will be required to take particular responsibility for English teaching and learning across the school.

Skilts School is committed to providing continuous professional development for all staff. We offer a supportive, motivating and engaging working environment.

Closing date for applications: Wednesday 1 May 2019 at midday 

Interview date: Tuesday 14th May 2019

Skilts School is committed to the safeguarding and welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. The successful candidate must promote this ethos.

The school will undertake, Right to Work, Enhanced DBS clearance, Disqualification (regulations) 2009, prohibition checks and if overseas trained a certificate of good conduct will need to be obtained if applicable prior to interview.

Bright at Night

News Release.

As a school we are getting involved in encouraging kids to stay ‘Bright at Night’.  This is a road safety awareness scheme for primary and secondary school children in the United Kingdom.

Over the years, we have created some great long standing relationships with local people, schools, clubs/initiatives and businesses.

As a school it is important to make ties locally. Working together with local companies, other schools and organisations is great for the community and anything we can do to help is always on our mind.

‘Bright at Night’

As we know during winter months, it goes darker much sooner and as your children are finishing school, reduced visibility does without doubt add to your concerns.

Local coach operator Coach Hire Booking are offering advice to schools and parents on how we can help keep kids stay visible during the winter months and beyond.  They have also offered to sponsor High-Vis vests when the school becomes in short supply. Coach Hire Booking have also recommended, and are happy to supply, Smiley Face Reflectors for both children and teachers upon request.

Children wearing High-Vis tags are proven to be visible up to three times further away than those without them.

The goal is to educate children in road safety awareness, especially during the darker winter months.
