The Royal School are seeking an enthusiastic and innovative Social and Emotional Mentor to join their learning support department. The ability to work with pupils with varying needs across KS3 to KS5 is essential as well as cross curricular support. We would welcome applications from experienced TA’s. A good understanding of general SEN needs and the needs of those children who are looked after is essential.
The learning support department consists of a SENCO, EAL Subject Leader, HLTA and a number of teaching assistants. You would be joining an experienced and supportive team. You would be expected to teach small intervention groups and also contribute to the extra-curricular programme by leading lunchtime clubs and activities in the mandatory activity period at the end of the day.
The Royal School has achieved excellent academic results throughout its history and has an outstanding reputation for nurturing and developing confident, well-disciplined and successful individuals who progress successfully to the next stage of education. We relish this next phase in its existence, which enables us to review and build on our current success in preparing our young people for a rapidly evolving world. If you are passionate about learning and ready to make a significant contribution, this could be your chance to make a real difference.
As an already successful co-ed independent day and boarding school we are looking to expand, under our Free School status, in a managed fashion over a five-year period to over 1400 pupils. Alongside the growth in pupil numbers there will be an expansion in the curriculum, enrichment activities and improved facilities, enabling us to extend and enhance still further the range of opportunities for all our young people. We are excited by the prospect of opening the School’s doors, in keeping with its tradition, values and history, to still more children, allowing them to benefit from the outstanding opportunities we can offer; a move which has been warmly welcomed by the local and wider community.
Contribution to the broader curriculum would be an essential part of the role.
