We are looking for a Pastoral Support Assistant with a proven commitment to raising the aspirations of students to overcome their barriers to learning. This is an exciting opportunity to join a school on an ambitious journey of transformation where you can use your experience and passion to make a difference.

The School is part of Wirral Academy Trust which was set up by Birkenhead Sixth Form College, an Ofsted Outstanding post-16 specialist, recently awarded TES Sixth Form College of the Year 2018. The School and the College work together collaboratively to share and develop educational best practice and create an inspiring culture with opportunities for career development. The Birkenhead Park School aims to achieve "Ambition and Excellence for All" and we are committed to providing the best possible education for every student. The School is driven by the values of Positivity, Ambition, Resilience, and Thoughtfulness, and building character is seen as a fundamental priority in securing our students’ future success. 

In May 2017, Ofsted recognised the significant progress the School has made in its journey of transformation. This has been further confirmed by a recent visit from the DfE and this role is key to the continued improvement of outcomes and the quality of support we offer our students.  

We therefore wish to appoint an individual with high expectations and the ability to motivate students to secure improvements in their behaviour, attendance and outcomes. You will be part of a committed and enthusiastic pastoral team that supports students with their attendance, emotional, social and behavioural challenges. You must be extremely driven and able to demonstrate excellent professional standards.
