PROUD TO MAKE SUCCESS HAPPEN
Uxbridge High School is an ambitious and dynamic converter academy with over 1,200 students aged 11 -18. We have much to celebrate at Uxbridge High School including a committed and focused staff, outstanding facilities, strong relationships with the community and school partners, supportive Governors and a thriving sixth form. As an early adopter school for Progress 8, we value the successes of every child, whatever their starting point. All of this takes place within a truly comprehensive and multicultural school that reflects life in modern Britain.
Our school values have been developed by students and staff and form the basis of our ethos and culture. All members of our school community subscribe and work towards always being:
Positive, Respectful, Open Minded, Unique, Determined. Proud to Make Success Happen
We are seeking to recruit a House Guidance Leader to work with the leadership team to co-ordinate the best possible educational experience for particular cohorts of students, namely a House (including students from Year 7 to Year 11) and also to have oversight of one year group. You will manage and liaise with a group of tutors; you will work closely with external bodies such as social services and the education welfare service; you will arrange and attend parents’ evenings and other parental meetings; you will organise and deliver assemblies, extra-curricular activities and year/house group events; and will be the first point of call for all pastoral issues relating to students in your house.
You will ideally be educated to degree level, with up to date safeguarding training, and will have experience of working in an educational environment and responsibility for the welfare and development of groups of children. You will have good organisational, interpersonal and communication skills (both oral and written) and be confident in public speaking in front of large numbers of students.
We would welcome applications from exceptional people who can make an integral contribution to Uxbridge High School.
We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expect all staff to share this commitment. Applicants must be willing to undergo child protection screening appropriate to the post, including checks with past employers and the DBS.
