Clockhouse is a large Primary School, which is a popular community school situated in Collier Row.

‘Clockhouse Primary School continues to be a good school. There is enough evidence of improved performance to suggest that the school could be judged outstanding if we were to carry out a section 5 inspection now.’

Ofsted Inspection January 2020

 

Due to the expansion of our current Additional Resource Provision, an exciting opportunity has arisen to appoint a Psychology Graduate to the role of Lead Emotional Wellbeing Mentor to join our team and further improve our already good school. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to work with a large, experienced and dynamic Pastoral and SEND team both within the school and with members of the Local Authority.

The school is looking to appoint someone who is enthusiastic, creative and who has excellent interpersonal skills. The successful candidate will need to work as part of a team and also be able to work on their own. They will need to have the confidence to speak with parents, in front of members of staff and also have good listening skills and empathy. It is essential that you have experience of working with children with special educational needs (SEN) and highly desirable that you have qualifications related to SEN and/or child development (e.g. psychology degree) that you are enthusiastic about applying in a school context. Experience of solution focused approaches work would be of benefit.

The role will include leading small group and individual sessions to support SEMH needs, mentoring sessions and contributing to person centered meetings. The role will involve working with a wide range of SEMH needs and also ‘at risk’ students. The successful candidate will work closely with the SENDCo, the ARP Team and the wider school’s Pastoral Team, as well as well as the Local Authority. This is a new post and it is therefore expected that the successful candidate will contribute to the further development of the role once in post. There are opportunities to become involved in research projects and training as well as exploring your own interest areas. Supervision is available to support this role.

Our Additionally Resourced Provision is attached to the mainstream school, it currently supports 7 pupils from Key Stage 2 all of whom have a diagnosis of autism and/or social communication needs. The provision is expanding to 20 pupils (across the primary age range) by Summer 2023.

 

The successful applicant will be required to:

  • Committed to our school values of Nurture, Respect, Learning, Community, Excellence and Excitement;
  • Outstanding practitioners;
  • Committed to high standards of achievement and behaviour;
  • Have experience of working with children with ASD and Social Communication needs;
  • Able to work as part of a team but also show initiative to work independently;
  • Be innovative, highly motivated and passionate about children and their learning;
  • Committed to Continued Professional Development and able to inspire and motivate others.

Our school offers:

  • Enthusiastic children.
  • A creative curriculum.
  • A well-resourced environment and a strong commitment to School Improvement.
  • A friendly working environment.
  • Regular support from Local Authority Professionals (e.g. Speech and Language Therapist, Advisory Teaching Team, Educational Psychologists).

 

We consider this to be an exciting opportunity for any applicant looking to develop and who wishes to work in a supportive and inclusive environment where commitment to development of the whole child is paramount.
