We are seeking to recruit a hard working professional to join the 2017-18 Year 8 pastoral team in providing outstanding pastoral care, support and guidance. Each year group is overseen by an Assistant Principal and two Student Performance Leaders. The appointed colleague will progress with the year group each subsequent academic year. This role is an incredibly important one; the success of any year group is undoubtedly underpinned by the effectiveness and impact of the year group’s pastoral team.
The successful applicant should be able to demonstrate excellent communication skills and have a good knowledge and understanding of pastoral support strategies. Above all any applicant must be passionate about ensuring our students receive outstanding pastoral care and have a mind-set of believing anything is possible. As part of this full time, non-teaching role you will work within the inclusion team supporting students who have specific needs in helping to address these, for example, the successful applicant may run group work sessions regarding Anger Management or Building Emotional Resilience. Effective engagement with parents and carers is an important part of this role so applicants must be able to demonstrate an ability to form positive relationships with a range of stakeholders and the ability to work flexibly within a team to meet the needs of all students.
Judged Outstanding for the first time in 2009 and re-designated as Outstanding in every Ofsted category in May 2013 we have a track record of excellence both in terms of student outcomes and professional development. Working within the nationally renowned GORSE Academies Trust led by Sir John Townsley we often work collaboratively and the successful candidate will benefit from Outstanding CPD and support which is personalised to your particular needs and experience.
