Inclusion School is an independent non-maintained special school, with 31 places, funded by Local Authorities and established to support the social, emotional and mental health complexities of young people to enable them to access a broad, balanced and engaging curriculum through a nurturing, safe and inclusive environment.
This is an exciting opportunity to be part of a school that is founded on the principles of positive mental health and wellbeing and to enable learners to have access to emotional wellbeing support as part of their education. Inclusion School is seeking a qualified practitioner to support young people with anxiety, school phobia (emotionally based school avoidance (EBSA) and other special educational needs by working within a wider team to deliver personalised support and interventions designed around the needs of the young person.
We are looking for an empathetic, patient and nurturing person with experience or an interest in mental health, wellbeing and mindfulness who is motivated to support young people.
