Meadows School, London Road, Southborough, Kent, TN4 0RJ

Meadows School is a successful non-maintained residential and day special school run by Barnardo’s. Meadows works with students aged 7-11 (off-site), 11-16 and 16-19 (adjoined site). All students have an EHCP for Social, Emotional and Mental Health. We are situated in Southborough, between the towns of Tonbridge and Tunbridge Wells.

The school are looking to recruit an Occupational Therapist at band 6-7, pro-rata to provide the OT provision indicated in the students’ EHCPs, support staff to make referrals for those students who may need OT assessments and advise the school about how the environment can support learning and well-being.  The OT will be part of the well-being team which includes a Clinical Psychologist, Counsellor, Cognitive-Behavioural Therapist and Speech and Language Therapists.  The well-being team is works closely with the education and care teams.

The Therapist will need to be flexible in their approach to ensure that they meet the individual needs of the students and have prior experience of working with SEMH pupils.

For an informal discussion or to arrange a visit please contact Jo Chester on 01892 529 144.

Our school is committed to safeguarding, equality and promoting the welfare of children, and expects all staff to share this commitment. The post is subject to an enhanced DBS check and good working references.
