Educational Psychologist

Covering Exeter and Barnstaple

We are seeking to appoint someone to take on an Educational Psychology role based across the Cornerstone Academy Trust, which comprises Broadclyst, Westclyst, and Monkerton Community Primary Schools and Yeo Valley Primary School. This is an exciting opportunity to join a dynamic and progressive Multi-Academy Trust and work as part of the SEND team.

Working alongside the Head of Children’s Services and the broader SEND team, the Educational Psychologist will:

  • Work with children 1:1 and observe in class in order to identify needs and provide recommendations for support
  • Consult with staff and parents regarding children’s needs
  • Provide written reports for professionals and parents
  • Attend EHCP Annual Review meetings and/or TAF meetings, where appropriate
  • Work collaboratively with the SEND team and provide guidance and strategic advice to the Leadership and Teaching Team

This is an ideal opportunity to work within an Academy Trust and enjoy the benefits of working within our 4 schools in a flexible way and supporting some children throughout their time at primary school.

Suitable candidates need to have:

  1. A significant breadth of EP experience across primary education where contributions to high quality outcomes for children can be evidenced.
  2. A commitment to self-progression, a willingness to keep abreast of developments in EP practice, disseminating best practice and supporting staff as needed.
  3. A shared vision and shared values with the Academy Trust and a desire to support the strategic goals of the Trust moving forward.
  4. Good organisational and communication skills and be a self-directed and highly motivated team player.
  5. A positive outlook and a determination to meet deadlines.
  6. Applicants must be professionally qualified and registered with the HCPC.

The role would be initially for 3 days a week with the potential scope for this to become a full-time post as the Trust schools expand. It will be a permanent, term-time only position. The salary will be between £44,908 - £49,569 pro rata, subject to experience. This allows for progression within the role in line with our appraisal and professional development processes. The actual salary will be lower to reflect the hours per week and the weeks per year.  

Our employees have access to the Local Government pension scheme, a health scheme, a cycle to work scheme and subsidised meals in our staff café with food cooked and served by our own chefs. Successful candidates will be provided with state-of-the-art IT equipment to help them fulfil their duties and we support all staff with an investment in their professional development through training and a good performance management process, where a bonus is payable to those who achieve highly. 

Visits to the schools are welcome by prior arrangement. These will be conducted virtually whilst COVID restrictions apply.  It is likely that the interviews will need to take place virtually via Microsoft Teams.We look forward to receiving your application and hopefully meeting you as part of the recruitment process.

An enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service check is required for all our posts. We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
