Where every second shapes a life…

Do you want to work in a place where you can make a difference every day?

Do you THRIVE on a challenge?

Do you believe in having the right provision for every child?

Infiniti School is looking to recruit a Thrive Practitioner to support the emotional development of our pupils and provide rich opportunities for children to learn as part of the daily curriculum. For us, it is about the right provision at the right time for every child.

The Thrive approach focuses on understanding, identifying and tackling the root causes of behaviour so more time is spent productively on learning.

Your duties will be:

  • To support the Social, Emotional and Mental Health (SEMH) pupil progress through the delivery of Thrive 1:1, 2:1 and small group interventions.
  • To be accountable for the progress of individual pupils measured against the Thrive attainment standards
  • To support staff to implement action plans, for both the whole class and individual.
  • To work with the Family Liaison Officer to deliver or support action plans outside school.
  • To maintain pupil Thrive files and provide progress data, written reports and evidence to the senior leadership team upon request.

The successful candidate will be passionate about the emotional development of our students and creative in their methods of delivering Thrive sessions both in our brand new, dedicated Thrive log cabin as well as the great outdoors! Previous experience would be an advantage but not necessary as fully licensed training can be provided, however, the successful candidate must have experience working in an educational setting. 

Infiniti is a unique school set in Doddington, a gorgeous area of outstanding natural beauty. This is a small village school aspiring to make BIG changes in the Social Emotional and Mental Health sector of education. 

To truly understand what this school is like, its vision for success in the future, the pupils and the staff who work here we strongly recommend a visit.
