We wish to recruit a part-time Attachment Mentor.
In our 2013-14 Ofsted inspection, St. Luke’s received an ‘Outstanding’ judgement in all areas. Particularly singled out for praise were the behaviour and learning attitudes of the children and the quality of the teaching. Therefore, we strongly believe that St. Luke’s is an excellent environment for all members of staff to feel excited by their work and to continue to learn, whatever their level of experience.
At the heart of St. Luke’s is a strong values system, which promotes diversity and inclusion in its actions and not just in words. It is a creative and innovative school, which aims to give each member of its community a voice in its development and growth. Through in-house research and professional development through coaching, it seeks to empower staff and children to shape the curriculum, the teaching and learning approaches and the environment. We continually aim to see the school experience through the eyes of the children and to challenge ‘received wisdom’ in relation to education. We aim to stay true to what we believe in whatever the pressures from outside. We very much welcome new members of staff who will add to the richness of ideas and dialogue around teaching and learning.
We offer a career development structure which builds on your strengths and passions and gives you the freedom to enquire and take risks.
As an Inclusion/Attachment Mentor, you will help LAC/adopted pupils access the support they need to overcome barriers to learning and to raise achievement. You will be required to develop a mentoring relationship with these children to address complex behaviour problems, attachment difficulties, low self-esteem and poor motivation. This will involve devising behaviour support/learning to learn programmes with the classteacher and/or SENCO. You will establish close links between parents/carers and outside agencies to ensure effective joint working to support the children’s learning. You will be given regular supervision.
If you are interested in applying for this position but would like more information, please ring the school and ask to talk to the SENCO/KS2 Deputy Head, Kay Watson. Visits are most welcome and can be organised via our administrator Lisa Miller.
Your starting salary will be pro rata if the above position is part-time or term-time only.
