St Mark’s School is a ‘Good’ 11-18 mixed comprehensive school where students thrive and reach their full academic and personal potential through the combination of a personalised, dynamic curriculum, quality teaching, enriching opportunities and high expectations.
The staff at St Mark’s School are a team who relentlessly work together to achieve our vision of inspiring all of our students for future success. This is an excellent opportunity for a passionate and committed colleague to support our students through the excellent work of our Pastoral Hub. This busy and caring hub office aims to engage and support our students to ensure that they are fully focussed on their learning on a day to day basis. The pastoral team work relentlessly to support all students and address any barriers to their learning, using a proactive and student-focused approach. This work is overseen by the school’s Deputy Headteacher who oversees to our two Pastoral Progress Leaders, a Student Welfare Manager, a Student Support Officer and the current Student Support Assistant. In addition, we have a full time Chaplain and a team of Mentors who also support our students.
Due to our current Student Support Assistant shortly going on maternity leave we have a fixed term vacancy. The post holder would provide an efficient and effective administrative service to the pastoral function of the school but also provide pastoral support to the students who are supported via the Hub office.
All of our pastoral staff are CP trained to Level 1 or 2 and have had access to other aspects of training to support pastoral work for example, attachment and mental health CPD.
The substantive post-holder currently works 4 days per week. In order to cover the period of maternity leave, the school is willing to consider part-time hours from 2 days up to 4, to be negotiated with the successful candidate.
