Are you committed to improving the lives of children and young people?

Craven Pupil Referral Service is a small, secondary school of just 23 pupils based on the outskirts of Skipton that provides high quality education for young people who have been excluded, or are in danger of exclusion, from mainstream school. We are recruiting a support team for September 2021.

Our HLTA’s will provide academic, behaviour and pastoral support to pupils in small groups and 1:1 and have responsibility for delivering interventions in one or more skills areas. They have a vital role to play in supporting our young people and are expected to take on a keyworker role for a small number of pupils. They are child centred and focus on providing the best possible education and care for their pupils and have strong behaviour management skills to de-escalate any threatening or aggressive behaviour. Our HLTA’s are well trained and supported in order to carry out their role and might also be asked to cover lessons in the event of short teacher absence.

In order to join our fabulous new team, you must have previous experience as a HLTA, SEMH Teacher, SEMH Instructor or similar Support Worker with significant intervention or tutoring experience. You will need patience, resilience, empathy and be able to persevere over the long term to see improvement in pupil's academic, social and behavioural progress.

If you would like to find out more about this post or arrange a visit to the school, please contact Carol Robertson, Headteacher (

Craven PRS is committed to safeguarding and ensuring the welfare of all young people and it is expected that all staff share this commitment. Any offer of employment is subject to satisfactory enhanced disclosure and barring checks.
