This full-time position, starting in September 2024, offers a unique opportunity to make a lasting impact on students aged 5-11 with social, emotional, and mental health difficulties (SEMH) and challenging behaviours.

As a part of our team, you will play a crucial role in promoting independence, choice, and valuing individual uniqueness at our school.

Collaboration is key at our PRU, so we are looking for someone who can work effectively as part of a team while also demonstrating leadership qualities when needed. Continuous professional development is essential to us, and we seek candidates who are dedicated to enhancing their skills and knowledge.

Strong personal organization, communication, and ICT skills are vital for this role. A track record of delivering good to outstanding practice in a similar setting will be advantageous.
