Learning mentor (Attendance)

Kirkby High SchoolKnowsley

36 hours per week / 46 weeks per year

Kirkby High School seek an enthusiastic, reliable, outgoing and well-motivated individual to join our community.  

A proven track record of working with children and young people, their parents, and a range of professionals within and beyond the school to ensure that every student is supported to make the best progress possible. The postholder will be required to drive the school minibus to undertake home visits (training will be provided), therefore a full clean driving licence is essential.

We have very high expectations of all staff and for the right person this is a superb opportunity.  It is essential that the applicant is educated to GCSE level and has obtained 5 GCSEs and ideally GCSEs in English and maths to grade C (4) or above.

There will be a comprehensive induction programme for all new staff, run by the Rowan Learning Trust. You will be working in a modern, well resourced, supportive environment, which has excellent facilities.

Our latest Ofsted inspection (December 2018) judged three criteria as ‘Good’ – effectiveness of leadership and management, quality of teaching, learning and assessment and personal development, behaviour and welfare.   Inspectors highlighted the vastly improved leadership and high ambitions which has helped to improve the quality of teaching and pupils’ behaviour.

Kirkby High School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and adheres to the Equality Act 2010. We expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment; any offer of employment will be subject to receipt of an enhanced DBS disclosure.  To comply with the Asylum and Immigration Act 1996 all prospective employees will be required to supply evidence of eligibility to work in the UK.
