The LiFE Multi-Adacemy Trust

Social, Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH) Lead Teacher


Full time 

LD 6-10

Required Autumn Term 2019 or sooner

Applications are sought from teachers with experience of working with students who display Social, Emotional and Mental Health needs. We require the successful applicant to run and lead on all aspects of curriculum planning, safeguarding, ENCP reviews, family relationships, with support from colleagues. This is a truly unique opportunity, to help design and lead a SEMH learning centre, as a standalone school. 

The SHINE Centre will educate up to 15 secondary age students, in a bespoke Learning Unit, located within The Winstanley School, but self contained, with its own dedicated staff. We envisage it to run as a ‘school within a school’. The SHINE Centre name reflects the values that are already embedded within The Winstanley School – Supporting others, Hardwork, Independence, Never giving up, and Excellence. 

We have high expectations of all staff within the LiFE Multi Academy Trust, which makes it an exciting and innovative place to work. We understand 5that this role will require support and encouragement to design what we hope becomes the ‘Blue Print’ for how in – school SEMH resources should be designed and run. Student and staff success is vitally important to us and we will endeavour to provide the environment and leadership conditions to let you do what you do best.     

Application forms and further details may be obtained from Mrs Carly Harper (HR Manager) at the address below or can be downloaded from  

The closing date for completed applications is Monday 20th May 2019 at 3pm with interviews taking place on 22nd or 23rd May 2019.
