About the role

Are you keen to make a difference to the outcomes of vulnerable children and young people with additional educational needs?

Do you enjoy the challenges and the rewards which come from successfully engaging pupils with their learning?

This is an exciting role and we are looking for a creative, dynamic, confident and competent individual to start as soon as possible who will work alongside colleagues in mainstream settings, supporting the successful integration of pupils with social, mental or emotional health difficulties (SMEH) which form a barrier to their learning and achievement. Some of your pupils will be returning to mainstream school from placement at pupil referral units and others will be at risk of exclusion and referred into our team by their schools. You will use your experience when working alongside support staff & teachers in schools to support the implementation of practical recommendations to "close the gap" and promote inclusion. 

Your work will be directed by a Specialist Teacher for Inclusive Practice and you will be part of an experienced, supportive, flexible and forward-looking team who seek to ensure the inclusion of pupils with social and emotional difficulties in their school through consultation and setting target outcomes with SMART actions to help achieve those outcomes.

The role holder will be responsible for delivering reintegration support to pupils in partnership with mainstream and short stay schools, the Area Specialist Teachers, parents/carers, pupils and other providers, ensuring that close links are maintained with all involved parties.

They will support the identification of barriers to success in order to inform, and sometimes deliver, agreed targeted programmes of support appropriate to individual pupil needs in order to promote pupil progress.

The role holder will model good practice, to support and to provide guidance and assistance to less experienced members of Support Staff in schools that will help develop inclusive education which enables pupils with behavioural difficulties to access the classroom curriculum as successfully as possible.

The office base is in Esher, but you will be expected to travel to different schools within the North East of Surrey (Spelthorne, Epsom & Ewell & Elmbridge) so will need to possess a full driving licence and have the use of a car.
