We are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic and highly motivated part-time Safeguarding Support Officer to work under the guidance of our Designated Safeguarding Lead. The successful candidate will work in partnership with the existing Safeguarding Officer and the College and other key agency staff to deliver key outcomes for students through a range of integrated support and services.

The successful candidate will need to be able to work collaboratively and flexibly and build good relationships with both students and staff, demonstrating a respectful and caring attitude towards everyone in school.  Experience of working with children in a school environment and having the appropriate literacy and numeracy skills to support students are essential.  Experience of supporting students and families with emotional and social needs including mental health is also critical.

All Saints is an 11-16 school, situated near the northern boundary of Kirklees.  We are a Catholic school with students attending from diverse cultural backgrounds, which contribute to the distinctive ethos.  In July 2017, Ofsted judged All Saints “Good” in every category and “Outstanding” in terms of our recent S48 inspection by the Diocese of Leeds in June 2018.

This is a fantastic opportunity to join our College making substantial progress under current leadership. In turn, we are looking for a candidate committed to playing a part in transforming the lives of our young people.
