Pastoral Support Officer

Mount St Mary's Catholic High SchoolLeeds

Mount St Mary’s is a successful and oversubscribed inner city school located in the very heart of the city. Drawing from three of the four compass points the school flourishes in an atmosphere of engagement and aspiration drawing hugely upon the experiences of our incredibly diverse community.

In April 2019 the school underwent a Section 48 Inspection gaining an overall judgement of Good with Outstanding.  The report comments "Students are polite, confident and respectful in the way they treat each other and interact with staff and visitors.  They are .. highly articulate and proud of their school and their personal achievements.  Behaviour in school is excellent and a strength of the school as it reflects its Catholic character."

Our recent Section 5 OFSTED Inspection (10/2019) graded our school as 'Good' in all areas.  It described us as a joyful place, with an authentic mission...clearly embraced by all the school community and foragers a passion... for desiring to give back. Leaders have developed a nurturing school, one in which there is a strong sense of responsibility towards each other. We have a well established reputation for our care, guidance and support ensuring all learners are afforded a high level of structure and personalised development.

All students seek to access extra curricular activities beyond the school day, be that of a sporting nature, academic, performing arts or public speaking.  This is an area we value highly and continue to see growth in.

Are you a highly efficient individual with an experienced background in administration and office work? Do you pride yourself in being very well organised with a strong attention to detail? Are you keen to utilise these skills to develop a career working with young people in education? If so, we would be interested in hearing from you in response to our Pastoral Support Officer vacancy. Previous employment within a school is desirable, but not essential, as full training will be provided. We welcome applications from all levels of administrative support.

The successful candidate will be based in a year office, and work in close partnership with one of our teaching Year Leaders to support and develop the structures and protocols to support the pastoral and academic progress of our students. Our Pastoral Support Officers provide the first line of communication for our families. The development of this key relationship is strengthened by working with the same cohort of students throughout their 5 year journey. Pastoral Support Officers play a full and active role in the planning, administration, delivery and evaluation of key year group events such as parent evenings, residentials and reward trips.
