Manchester Secondary PRU provides full time education for pupils between 11-16 who are permanently excluded, at risk of permanent exclusion or are otherwise unable to access a mainstream curriculum. Our aim is to match provision closely to the needs of individual children and young people referred to the PRU by schools, academies or the local authority. We see the needs of all our pupils as centring on their capacity to learn and make progress and seek to address the barriers to success that they face. We have provision in 9 centres across the city and commission further placements with Alternative Providers in a wide variety of settings.

The school is looking to appoint a committed and enthusiastic individual to undertake the role of School Data and SIMS Manager.  This is an exciting opportunity to join us as we enter the next crucial phase in the development of the PRU. The successful individual will be undertaking a key role in PRU and will be responsible for the design and implementation of reporting frameworks for our wide range of partners and stakeholders.

The person we are looking for will:

  • have a high level of emotional intelligence
  • be able to manage multiple complex priorities under pressure
  • be able to build and maintain good relationships with pupils, parents and carers, staff, schools, youth workers and educational and safeguarding professionals
