Job details

Are you looking for a new challenge and to be part of an enthusiastic, hard-working team?

Do you possess the experience, flexibility and dedication to advocate for pupils that have been, or are at risk of being, excluded?

Are you ready to teach in a setting that drives the development of the whole child and celebrates progress across a range of measures?

If yes, then Bridgelea may be the place for you!

Bridgelea nurtures an environment which many teachers find stimulating, because they work much more closely with individual pupils and see far more progress in areas which will be life-changing than might be seen in many mainstream environments.

Teaching at Bridgelea actively encourages you to 'think outside the box' and provides a rare platform for creativity and innovative practice to be explored. In short, our setting may test resilience and tenacity, but is also an extremely rewarding & special place to work.

We are currently located over two sites in Withington and Longsight offering places for up to 94 children; successful candidates may be required to work at various locations across Manchester. If you feel you can contribute energy and ideas to the development of this growing community we warmly encourage you to apply.

Working in a PRU isn't an easy ride, some of the behaviour can be extremely challenging at times, and it can take a huge amount of commitment and patience to work with the children who attend our setting. However, all teaching roles have their fair share of challenges and the rewards for the challenges we encounter are like no other.

Here at Bridgelea we simply represent another point on the education spectrum, and we are passionate in ensuring our children access, and are supported in being successful in, the broad educational diet they deserve and are entitled to.

Bridgelea is an Ofsted-rated "Good" Pupil Referral Unit (April 2018) providing specialist educational provision for primary aged children with Social Emotional and Mental Health difficulties.
