Meols Cop is a successful school at the heart of the local community. We are committed to providing stimulating, challenging and engaging learning experiences for our students and invest heavily in professional development.
We are expanding our pastoral provision to create an on-site facility to support students currently experiencing significant attendance challenges as a result of issues around their mental health and wellbeing. The vision for this provision is that students experiencing exceptional levels of challenge in terms of their attendance and academic & personal development will be supported through a bespoke nurture provision.
The approach is three-fold:
- To offer emotional support and wellbeing: offering bespoke, professional support and talking therapies to unpick the challenges and equip students with strategies to support their education and reintegration into school life; close collaboration with all stakeholders will maximise success of support strategies in place
- To support curriculum education and academic development: clear and focussed age and stage appropriate curriculum coverage and lessons with subject specialists; a curriculum journey tailored to the needs of students with an initial focus on core subjects. High expectations of academic support, development and progress.
- To ensure sustainable reintegration: a programme of reintegration to support phased return back into the main school setting, offering reduced timetables, partial timetables and guided support once back in the main school setting. Post-nurture support plan in place to maintain sustainable reintegration.
We are excited to advertise for a unique role strategically leading our wellbeing and attendance provision. This is a role that combines leadership skills with mental health and wellbeing expertise to support in the implementation and delivery of the facility. The person appointed will have extensive experience in education, mental health and supporting young people to achieve excellent outcomes. They do not necessarily have to be a qualified teacher. Using research to inform planning, the candidate appointed will work closely with the leadership team to deliver this provision and to write up a case study and impact review to contribute to existing evidence around mental health support in education.
Completed applications should be sent to email@example.com and marked for the attention of Mrs Paula Nevins, PA to the Leadership Group. Closing Date: Monday 27th June at 9am. Interviews to take place shortly thereafter.
