Well, an exciting opportunity to become part of a new Secondary Specialist Setting in Gloucester, who advocate this ethos, has arisen! 

This day school will provide high-quality education, specifically designed to meet the needs of secondary aged pupils (year 7 to 11) with education, health and care plans.

  • Supporting with academic development alongside social and emotional well-being 
  • Occasional need to accompany pupil on activities outside of the classroom
  • Following advice given by specialists involved with the pupil, such as educational psychologists
  • Some students have gaps in their education so this role may be suitable for those with experience in Primary settings

  • Be consistent, firm and fair in your approach and expectations, giving plenty of positive feedback
  • Recognise that many pupils will have suffered significant trauma and adverse childhood experiences and may have social care involvement
