Job Purpose

 

Lindsworth’s catchment area covers the whole of Birmingham and we seek a highly reliable individual to join our team of drivers for our small fleet of minibuses providing transport to and from school on a daily basis.  All drivers are accompanied by a pupil guide on journeys.

 

You must have experience of driving larger vehicles, such as vans or minibuses, have a knowledge of basic vehicle safety and hold a current valid category D1 driving licence with no more than six penalty points.

 

The successful candidate will be expected to undertake Minibus Driver Awareness Training (MiDAS).

 

This post is covered by Part 7 of the Immigration Act (2016) and therefore the ability to speak fluent spoken English is an essential requirement for the role.

 

 

Lindsworth School is a mixed day/residential special school meeting the needs of 125 pupils who have been assessed as having social, emotional and mental health difficulties. They arrive throughout the year into each year-group.  Many of the pupils have medical diagnoses including ADHD, ASC, PTSD, PDA, ODD and Attachment Disorder. They have also experienced significant disruption to their education due to multiple school moves, fixed term and permanent exclusions and long periods of part-time or no placement in a school.  The majority of pupils are also known to one or more support agencies such as Social Services, CAMHS, the Police or Youth Offending Service.

 

Lindsworth School received a judgement of “Good” from Ofsted in January 2016 and its residential provision was again judged “Good” in February 2019. The school is part of the Priority Schools Building Programme (PSBP) and initial plans are underway.

 

This is a school where you can make a real and lasting difference to the young people in our care. We are highly ambitious to provide our students with the best education and preparation for a happy and successful life in the adult world.
