Do you want a job where you make a difference to the lives of children and young people?

Do you want to be inspired on a daily basis by your work? 

Are you passionate about inclusion and committed to meeting the needs of all children?

Do you have the ability to engage, motivate and promote the learning and personal development of pupils?

Exciting opportunities are available for people looking for a career in education or in a fresh challenge in an inspiring learning environment at Springwell Learning Community, where we provide children and young people with ‘second chance’ learning. It couldn’t be a more exciting time to join the Barnsley and Kirklees Special Provision Partnership.  We’re a new, bold partnership, formed through the collaboration of Springwell Learning Community, Greenacre School and Joseph Norton Academy.  Through our collaboration we provide a unique opportunity for our children, our staff and the communities we serve. The posts will suit candidates who have the commitment, passion and resilience to make a difference to pupils who have a range of social, emotional, mental health and special educational needs.

As part of our school’s Pastoral Team, you will play a key role in creating a stimulating, safe and happy environment in which our pupils can thrive.  You will have experience of working with vulnerable children and the ability to support our pupils and their families to overcome barriers to learning in a multi-agency setting.  At school you will be a key support for both pupils and staff, leading areas such as attendance, pupil welfare and the school’s learning support or ‘on call’ system.

We are looking for a team-player with presence, passion and a commitment to inclusion with the ability to work creatively for the benefit of pupils at our school.  In return you will have the opportunity to work with great colleagues as part of a supportive team and the ability to develop your career in our specialist setting.

Springwell Learning Community is an extremely special place to work.  Attendance is high. Exclusions are exceedingly low and pupils make good progress over time.  Parents comment that their children settle quickly and enjoy coming to school.  Pupils say they feel safe and cared for.  The school’s approach, including nurture principles, social pedagogy and restorative practice, is unique in the District and we work hard to provide the best possible experience for the pupils we support.

Should you be successfully appointed, you’ll be working alongside dedicated, talented and highly skilled people.  If you would like to meet us before you apply, please call Kerry Ann Beet (Pastoral Manager) on 01226 291133 to arrange a school visit.  For more information about our school or Wellspring Academy Trust, please visit
