“The headteacher, leaders and governors have successfully created a culture where every pupil is valued, supported and encouraged to achieve the best that they can. The quality of care and guidance is excellent” Ofsted 2016.
We are seeking an experienced professional who is proficient in supporting young people as a mentor, or teaching assistant, with the ability to manage a team of up to 20 student support staff. Our student support faculty is integral to the school’s vision to ensure the young people in our school overcome barriers to their learning and achieve their full potential. We have enhanced the provision for students and staff in our inclusion suite and we have also increased our permanent staffing within this area.
You will work closely with teachers to provide care and supervision to young people and also to enhance the additional adult provision through the inclusion suite. You will therefore need to have the knowledge, tenacity and communication skills to ensure students overcome barriers to learning. Equally, you will need organisational and networking skills to ensure you motivate and develop your team.
This fulfilling role will provide a wealth of developmental opportunities and we will ensure you receive a comprehensive induction programme. Every day will be different and we will play to your strengths. We have a strong commitment to staff wellbeing and recognition, and offer a range of benefits which include the local government pension scheme, cycle to work and childcare voucher schemes, discounted gym membership, free parking and an employee discount scheme.
Castle Phoenix has a great deal to be proud of, with a relentless focus on excellence and a desire to continuously improve. If you have the passion and determination to be a valued part of our team, we would love to hear from you.
The role includes the delivery of manual handling training to our support staff. It would be ideal if you were already trained to train others but this is not essential as we would invest in you and organise comprehensive, external training to ensure you are professionally trained to deliver this.
If you are passionate about improving students’ life chances, as we are, please contact Emma Over, HR Director for information, an informal discussion about the post or to arrange a visit.
