Pupil Mental Health Lead
8.00am - 5.00pm, 34 weeks per year (term time only)
We are looking for a committed mental health practitioner to lead and develop an expert and innovative service for promoting pupils' mental wellbeing. The role will involve leading counselling provision, developing and promoting the emotional and mental health of the pupils and supporting the safeguarding and welfare of the pupils. The Pupil Mental Health Lead will liaise closely with pupils, parents, pastoral and academic staff. The successful applicant will have a professional therapy qualification or similar and be registered with an appropriate professional body (or be working towards this).
The position demands high professional standards and experience of working with adolescents/young adults. Experience of working in an educational setting is advantageous but not essential.
This is a fantastic opportunity to join a fun, forward-thinking School which is committed to academic excellence; continual development of staff; and innovative teaching and learning strategies. This is within the context of outstanding pastoral care and co-curricular provision to ensure the best possible holistic pupil experience.
If you like to work collaboratively and welcome the opportunity to develop as a practitioner, we offer a comprehensive induction and CPD programme for all levels of staff, competitive remuneration package, and outstanding, well-equipped facilities.
