About High Well School

Dear Candidate,

On behalf of the staff and Governing Body, welcome to High Well School's recruitment website.

High Well is a special school for seventy pupils aged between 11-16 years with an Education, Health and Care Plan for Profound/Severe Social, Emotional and Mental Health Needs (SEMH).   At High Well we aim to prepare every pupil for a positive future.  Our core purpose is to develop our pupils’ academic, social and emotional skills so that each pupil leaves us ready and equipped for further education, employment or training, knows how to keep themselves safe, and is able to contribute to society.

Many of our pupils come to us having experienced disruption to their school life, often from an early age.   At High Well we aim to provide stability and consistency for both pupils and parents/carers in order to overcome barriers to learning through supporting and teaching our pupils how to manage and regulate their emotions and feelings.  Thorough and robust assessment ensures that we identify what each pupil already knows and where there are any gaps in their learning/development.  This allows us to plan to meet individual pupils’ needs and ensure that every pupil makes good or better progress.

We have a fantastic staff team with a range of expertise who are committed to our ethos of Preparing for Positive Futures, and work hard to ensure the best possible quality of education for each pupil.

Prospective candidates are encouraged to contact the school if you require further information or visit our High Well School website by visiting: https://www.highwellschool.org.uk.  The school application form, job description and associated documents are attached to this advert.

Our website aims to give you a taster of what High Well is about as well as a range of useful information, including our social media tweets, latest OFSTED report, handy tips to support you in fully completing your application form and much more!
