Sheiling School is committed to equality of opportunity and will consider applications from all members of the community, whatever their background.
The Sheiling School follows the Steiner Waldorf Curriculum, which has been carefully designed to provide a holistic education. The Steiner Waldorf Curriculum includes all areas of the National Curriculum, but all academic topics are taught in 3 – 5 week blocks during our Main Lesson, which is delivered between 9.10 and 10.30 a.m. each day. The Steiner Waldorf Curriculum strongly supports educational achievement while also providing therapeutic elements and encouraging pupils to develop independence skills.
Some of our young people are very active but at the same time are vulnerable if left on their own. Some young people can behave in a way that is challenging to others and part of our role is to teach young people safer and more effective ways of communicating their needs. However, a level of challenge still exists; this can be physical or a reluctance to engage. For these reasons this role requires someone who is physically fit. We will, where possible, look to make reasonable adjustments to comply with the Equality Act 2010.
- Enrolment in a Level 3 Diploma in Children and Young People (upon successful completion of a 6 month probationary period)
