As a Pastoral Lead, you will be supportive and will play a large part in behaviour management of the pupils attending the academy, giving strategies and support to the staff that you work alongside. As part of your role, you will also be required to undertake CPI training if you don’t already hold this certificate as part of your induction. Essential qualifications and person specific requirements are as per the role profile.
You will have the opportunity to work as part of a well-established and talented team whose roles are all based around the needs of our pupils. You will be required to work within KS3 and KS4 pupils, and possibly younger pupils, within ACE Schools Plymouth. You should have experience of dealing with pupils with a wide range of behaviour and SEN needs, together with the ability to work on your own initiative as well as part of a wider team. A proven track record in multi-agency working and effective communications across agencies is essential.
Communication with parents, schools, staff and multi-agency partners is a major part of the role. You will need to be comfortable having difficult conversations with parents communicating concerns in a sensitive and supportive way. Communication with staff is key to ensure that the team is motivated and supported on a daily basis. This will require knowledge and the ability to support children whose behaviour may be affected by experiences of trauma, attachment difficulties or neuro-developmental issues.
If you have an understanding and capacity to manage young people with learning and behavioural difficulties and the desire to help make a difference to young people’s lives, then we would like to hear from you.
