School 21Newham

Date posted:
Start date: 2nd September 2019
Contract type: Full Time
Salary: £22,800 (FTE)/£19,555 pro-rated for 41 weeks
Contract term: Permanent

This is an incredibly exciting opportunity to be part of something special and to make a real difference. We give our Pupil Achievement Coaches the chance to be creative, collaborative and develop skills, passions and attributes in all children. We are building a great team of people who are
innovative, practical and determined to deliver for our children. We currently have two roles available – we are particularly keen to hear from you if you have specific experience and confidence supporting students with complex special needs. We want all our Pupil Achievement Coaches to develop an expertise.


There are three main pathways:

  • Being a champion of literacy and numeracy helping children achieve in these fundamental skills.
  • Being a specialist in supporting individuals and groups of children who have specific learning needs.
  • Monitoring children who sometimes struggle with their behaviour.


In each area you will go the extra mile for pupils who face particular learning challenges to ensure they make outstanding progress. As we are an all-through school you will be part of a team across the whole 4 to 18 school. Although you will be based in primary or secondary there will be many opportunities to share practice. And of course the whole team will be united in the view that all children can succeed. School 21 has built strong foundations in a short period of time, confirmed by our recent Ofsted which was outstanding in all categories. There was strong recognition for the ethos and approach of the school:

"Pupils across the school make exceptional progress."

“Staff morale is exceptionally high. Teachers at the early stages of their
career value the ‘fantastic’ professional development and opportunities to
learn from each other. Those with more experience said that they have
become much better teachers since joining the school.”

"Pupils have excellent attitudes to learning, impeccable manners and show
respect for everyone.”

Through project-based learning "pupils achieve remarkable standards of
work and demonstrated knowledge and skills at levels beyond those
expected for their age group."

“Pupils talk and discuss with a maturity and confidence that is remarkable
for their years."
