Teacher MPS / UPS + 1 SEN

A secondment from another school would be considered for the right candidate

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. The school will relocate to a brand new, purpose built, building in the east of Birmingham. The indicative date is September 2021

All of our pupils have an Education Health and Care Plan which indicates the key target 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 will academise with Forward Education Trust c2020.

The latest Ofsted report (Sept 2019) states that “leaders are making sure that the curriculum continues to improve and, behaviours and attitudes to learning continue to improve. Pupils are approaching their work with more determination to get things right.” 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 some experience of supporting and 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 be empathetic to the complex needs of our pupils and also resilient to challenge; understanding that at times our pupils can display challenging behaviours which are a result of their special needs.

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: Midday on Monday 18 November 2019

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.

Forward Thinking Birmingham

Pause is Forward Thinking Birminghams’ city centre drop-in service, based in Digbeth. They also run a weekly pop-up Pause in Aston.

It’s a little bit different to other mental health services you might have experienced. The best bit about Pause is you don’t need an appointment; you can simply drop in for a chat.

Whatever your reason for coming, whether you’re a little worried about something that’s going on in your life or you just need some space to think, Pause is here for you. Drop in and talk to one of the team, learn a new technique for managing your emotions or simply browse our online self-help materials. Pause is run by our friendly team of therapists, youth workers and volunteers, who are always on hand to lend a listening ear.

Details of the City centre drop in service for Forward Thinking Birmingham can be found by following this link.
