We are pleased to invite applications for a pastoral assistant to join our dynamic pastoral team. The candidate should have excellent communication and organisational skills and a flexible approach. Confidence and discretion will be essential as you will be dealing with sometimes difficult issues with parents, carers and outside agencies on a daily basis. For further details, please see the job description.
Trinity School is a dynamic, forward thinking and oversubscribed mixed Church of England learning community for pupils aged 11-18. Teaching is motivating and fun, and learning opportunities are not confined to the classroom; we offer a range of educational opportunities for all our pupils. We seek to challenge our pupils’ perceptions and aim to equip them with the skills to be independent and resilient learners. The school is a member of the Trinitas Academy Trust, a collaboration of one secondary school and four primary schools, with more schools due to join us soon.
“The school cares keenly for its pupils. Relationships between staff and pupils are excellent. The individual attentions given to pupils helps them to thrive and leaves them well prepared for the next phase of their education.”
“Pupils are committed learners; they want to do well and encourage each other to work hard.”
(Ofsted, February 2016)
At Trinity, we can offer you an environment where “behaviour is outstanding” which is “reflected in pupils’ excellent conduct around the site, the respect they show their teachers and the courteous manner in which they greet visitors to the school.” We provide excellent training and induction support programmes for new staff and NQTs, as well as the highest quality professional development through the extensive use of professional networks across the Trust. This is a school with a harmonious working environment and supportive colleagues, which has a very strong, shared Christian ethos. As part of the Trust, we also offer a childcare voucher scheme and competitive pay on the Outer London Pay Scales.
Trinity School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and all staff and volunteers are expected to share that commitment. Please note that the successful applicant will require a DBS check

The appropriate standards are set out in the person specification. These will be applied during the recruitment/selection and probationary stages.
