Our On Board Centre (OBC) is a room situated in our Learning Support Department which provides a wide range of support for students to allow them to thrive academically and be successful in school - it was recognised by Ofsted in our most recent inspection for the excellent support it provides. 

Students are referred to the On Board Centre by the school's pastoral team for a variety of reasons; for example, because they are experiencing health issues (physical or mental) which are making it hard for them to be in class, because they have experienced something difficult or upsetting outside of school or because they are struggling to manage aspects of their behaviour. 

Students will work for a set period of time in the OBC and, while there, they complete work set by their class teachers under the supervision and guidance of the OBC Team - expectations of students when working in the OBC are the same as they are elsewhere in the school and we insist on very high standards. 

We are looking for the right person to join this team in supporting and managing students in the On Board Centre, liaising with class teachers and other staff in school to ensure that, during their stay in the OBC, students work hard, remain safe and receive the support they need to resume their learning back in class.


The School:

Droylsden Academy is enjoying a period of rapid improvement; this is a very exciting time to join us as we are building a team of committed professionals who are driven in making our vision of becoming outstanding a reality.

The Academy was recently inspected and Ofsted noted the rapid progress our school is making. The result of this inspection was the school being judged good in all areas. 

“Pupils behave well, they are proud of their school and take on leadership roles readily” 

“The school’s core values of politeness, hardworking and honesty are in abundance”

“Pupils are interested in their learning because teachers have excellent subject knowledge and plan carefully”


If you are someone who; 

• has experience of working with young people to support their education

• is resilient, positive and can work as part of a team

• is interested in supporting young people to overcome barriers and succeed at school...

this is the ideal opportunity for you.


The Academy is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share in this commitment. To ensure this, successful candidates will be subject to an enhanced DBS disclosure.
