Seeking a highly experienced individual to fulfil a Behaviour Mentor role in a Wolverhampton Primary school.
As a Behaviour Mentor you will be working with staff, pupils and families. On a daily basis, you will be supporting pupils within the school with many disadvantages including;
- Looked after children
- Children in the social care system including Children in Need (CIN), Child Protection (CP) and Early Help Assessments (EHA)
- Children with Challenging Behaviour, emotional, medical and Special Needs
- Children with Special Education Needs (SEN) and those with an Education Health Care Plan (EHCP).
As a minimum, you are required to hold GCSEs in Maths and English at Grade C or equivalent as well as hold at least a Level 3 qualification in education, childcare, social work, social care, counselling or youth work and ideally, you will hold a Paediatric First Aid qualification and provide first aid as required.
To effectively fulfil this role, you will need experience of working with children within schools, especially those with behaviour issues, ideally have experience of using behaviour trackers and have liaised with parents and families as and when required. It is essential that you have experience of working with multi-agencies with the ability to produce information for, and attend, multi-disciplinary meetings involving EHAs CIN, CP and LAC.
Knowledge of SEN and EHCPs is essential as well as the issues affecting families and parenting needs of children. A large part of this role will involve the ability to score, record, evaluate and feedback outcome measures so experience of doing similar is required. You will be required to plan and facilitate activities, structured games to support pupils during unstructured times as well as planning and drawing up approaches that could be used to support pupils individually and in group settings. These sessions include delivering circle time, nurture sessions, anger management sessions and relaxation to specific pupils on a daily or weekly basis dependent on their individual identified need. One of the main focuses within this role will be to work with pupils on a 1:1 basis and in small groups both within and outside of the classroom environment. You will also be required to monitor the progress of pupils, during and after intervention to measure the impact of the intervention strategy.
Due to the complexity of this role, experience of the above is essential. For more information please contact Alex Lang at Hays via email at or call for a confidential conversation.
