As our Trust grows, we are looking to expand our Central Team, by appointing a part time (0.2 FTE) Trust Mental Health and Wellbeing Lead.  We would like the best candidate for the role, and so your salary will be highly competitive and will be discussed with the successful candidate at the time of job offer.

The mental health lead will be responsible for the Trust’s approach to mental health and well-being and will forge effective links with external agencies as well as keeping abreast of national and local mental health services. The lead will have an oversight of the whole-school approach to mental health and wellbeing, including how it is reflected in behaviour and well-being policies, curriculum and pastoral support.

We are looking for someone to develop and oversee the whole Trust approach to mental health and well-being including how this is reflected in the design of Trust policies, how staff are supported with their own mental health and how pupils/parents are engaged.

Above and beyond everything, the successful candidate will not only know and understand our Trust Values, but will be able to articulate clearly and passionately, how these values will be lived by you - every day.

If you are the right person for this role, then we hope you will want to join our Team.  We pride ourselves on being a supportive employer, with a strong voice for the teaching profession as a whole.  We live by our values – and “family first” means that as well as two additional paid leave days (Family Days), we have a range of benefits to demonstrate how much we value each and every colleague; 

  • Commitment to your ongoing Continued Professional Development
  • Family friendly/sociable working hours and a work-life balance
  • 2 family days
  • Access to Teacher Pension scheme
  • Eyecare vouchers through Specsavers
