    Principal ~ Dawn White
    Required from January 2020


    We are seeking to appoint an Alternative Provision Manager, on 20 month contract in the first instance, to oversee small, structured teaching groups for students showing signs of behavioural, social or emotional difficulties, particularly those who are experiencing disruption or distress outside of school. The aim is to provide a predictable environment in which students can build trusting relationships with adults and gain the skills they need in order to learn in larger classes. The core purpose of these groups is to support students to improve their
    behavioural, social and emotional skills and:
     to reduce the incidences of poor behaviour
     to help students develop strategies to know when their behaviour was escalating and give them strategies to manage
     to learn to behave appropriately
     to enable students to understand the consequences of their behaviour.
