The Portsmouth Academy
Salary: Grade D: £19,846 - £22,337 FTE
Contract: Full Time and Permanent
Start Date: As soon as possible
Term time only: 46 weeks - 37 hours per week
Due to the recent growth of the school, a new opportunity has arisen for an enthusiastic, committed and experienced Behaviour Support Officer at The Portsmouth Academy; one of the most improved secondary schools in the country (top 20% under the new progress measures).
We are part of the Thinking Schools Academy Trust, at the heart of which is the belief that the work we do must transform the life chances of our students. We believe that the best way to do this is to actively shape minds, attitudes and habits through a framework of cognitive education.
The Behaviour Support Officer's principal responsibility is to support the implementation of the school’s behaviour policy, under the supervision of the Assistant Principal: Making Excellence a Habit.
The right candidate for the role will have high levels of motivation, energy and commitment with the ability to work to build positive relationships with students, staff, parents and carers. They will work well as part of a team and be willing to have a profile around the school, carrying out duties and ensuring the academy’s high expectations for behaviour are maintained.
Visits to the school are encouraged and can be arranged by contacting the Executive PA, Sue Wood at the school.
Early applications are encouraged and we reserve the right to close the vacancy early if a suitable candidate is found.
We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. This post is subject to an enhanced DBS check.
