An ‘outstanding’ place to work

John Henry Newman Catholic College is an  oversubscribed and high performing 11-19 College. The College serves an  area of high economic deprivation and the learning community of  Governors, staff and students thrives on the opportunity to truly make a  positive difference to the young people we serve.

An opportunity to join our exciting community 

John Henry Newman Catholic College  strives to be at the forefront of school improvement and innovation and  invests heavily in the creation of a learning community where we all  have the responsibility to learn from others and to contribute to the  professional development of our colleagues. It is through this  collaborative culture that together we can break down barriers to  learning and support our students to gain the competitive edge over  other applicants to leading Universities, prestigious apprenticeships  and the subsequent world of work.

The Governors seek to appoint an Attendance Mentor to join our excellent Student Services Team.  An important part of your role as Attendance Mentor will be to oversee the attendance of vulnerable student’s and liaise with the Learning Mentors who are attached to specific year groups, to ensure that attendance is above National Average and that all measures are taken by all year groups to meet this target.  He or she will also work with the Strategic Director - Safeguarding to ensure that all vulnerable students are supported using the appropriate Pastoral Support Plans.  You will be required to keep up-to-date and accurate records of the impact of specific strategies on specific students and on specific areas of concern.  Your attendance will be required for calendared evening events, such as, open evenings, academic review days, Year 6 transition/induction evening, getting started evenings, and any other directed events.

Develop you passion 

The successful candidate will support  students to set the highest expectations and to make outstanding  progress. This post offers the prospect to make a significant impact and  help shape and develop the Student Services department for the future.  He/she will have the motivation and energy to inspire young people and a  determination to never settle for second best.

The College Governors are proud of what  John Henry Newman Catholic College has achieved to date and are keen to  appoint someone who wholeheartedly shares their ambition and commitment  to the mission of the College.
