We have a great opportunity for a Pastoral Manager to join our inspiring and growing School. Lordswood Boys’ School (LBS) is about to achieve a fourth successive year of outstanding results as we await our first Ofsted Inspection as a Central Academies Trust (CAT) school. We believe we are at least a GOOD school with OUTSTANDING leadership and management.

The successful candidate will oversee the pastoral management of one year group in our school; we are a small and expanding school, with around 400 students in year groups 7-11. If you want to make a difference to our students and support them to achieve their full potential, then this is the role for you.  

The successful candidate will be:

  • Experienced in working in any pastoral setting in schools, or experience that could be easily translated and applied into a school setting.
  • Creative and innovative.
  • Have very high standards for their own performance and that of the students.
  • Looking to work with driven and focussed leaders in the fastest and most substantially improved school in the UK.
  • Be a strong student advocate.

Whilst this role is predominantly term time there is a requirement for the successful candidate to work an additional 10 days per year during holiday times, in agreement with the Head of School. The hours of work are 37 hours per week with flexibility in hours to fit in with the daily requirements of the school. 

These are reasons why you might want to join us:

  • Our new school £14million state-of-the-art school is now open.
  • The school is divided into two Colleges. As we expand, we will add up to two more colleges and recruit Pastoral Managers for each.
  • The school is expanding rapidly.
  • We are keen to add a 6th Form from September 2021 and our new school has provision for this.
  • The behaviour of students is a strength of the school.

The role will consist of the full range of pastoral activities with key areas being:

  • Working in a team of five Pastoral Managers under the leadership of a Pastoral Director.
  • Maintaining contact with home where students are not making good enough progress with attitudes to learning.
  • Helping staff the Internal Exclusion Unit; this is used as a temporary sanction for a very small number of our students with the emphasis on re-integration. All staff contribute to the running of this unit, though some days and even some weeks, it is not used.
  • Working with an experienced Leadership Team to ensure optimum care for our most vulnerable students.
  • Devising Intervention plans for the most vulnerable students.
  • Maintaining appropriate data tracking systems to accurately monitor student progress with improving behaviour.
