Kettlethorpe High School is a large and popular maintained school in Wakefield, near to the M1 and with excellent links to Sheffield, Leeds and Kirklees.

We continue to flourish and are the school of choice within the local area. We are often oversubscribed and are currently planning for a larger cohort entry that will see new capital building work and a potential 11-16 roll of 1,800 pupils.

We are seeking a skilled and knowledgeable practitioner with experience in the field of school inclusion to join our team supporting children and young people to engage in learning.

As our School Inclusion Manager, you will line-manage a team working alongside other professionals, and a resource base to identify pupils requiring support, focusing on the root causes of non-attendance and barriers to learning, allowing early intervention through an agreed range of strategic support, which will be planned and delivered as part of a whole school focus to secure the best possible outcomes for every child. Where necessary, you will oversee the use of legal powers and interventions. You will be responsible for building and maintaining strong relationships with schools and partner agencies including mental health and school nursing.

You will need to be a proven and effective case worker in your own right as you will also be responsible for a caseload of more complex cases. You will need to be passionate about supporting children and families to engage in learning and will need to have some experience of managing a team.

In return, we can offer: supportive and structured line management with reflective supervision, a team of like-minded individuals focused on making a real difference with opportunities for structured and tailored training and continuous professional development.
