SEMH Teacher

TLTP Education

£120.00 - £230.00 per day


Temporary | Full Time



A therapeutic school in South East London for students with Social, Emotional and Mental Health conditions is seeking a KS3 Teacher to join their team on a long term basis.  
This school caters for pupils with extremely complex needs; adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and experiences of toxic stress. It is therefore imperative that their behaviour policy is flexible, effective and centred on rewarding positive behaviours and building positive relationships, in line with their therapeutic approach. They understand that pupils' behaviours need to be viewed within the context of the many negative and complex factors outlined above. They, therefore, use therapeutic strategies that work with pupils' difficulties in order to help them realise their full potential  
Teachers at this school are responsible for the highest standards of planning, teaching, assessment and behaviour management for their children who have significant SEMH as well as other associated SEN. Teachers coordinate and facilitate learning through engaging, differentiated, appropriately challenging learning sessions, which plan for maximum progression. Teachers produce detailed, clear differentiated planning for all National Curriculum subjects and this planning is linked to children's individual needs, progress plans and assessment of children's learning and progress. Teachers write three progress reports over a year, input termly assessment data and ensure that books/work are/is kept marked regularly, positively and constructively as per our marking policy. Teachers are at the core of leading the schools' childcentred ethos and reflect the values and expectations at this school. Teachers work at the core of a wider multi-disciplinary team of professionals and ensure that support workers know at all times what is expected of them when it comes to facilitating learning with specific children in their groups.
