Exciting New School

Grove Academy is a new free school that opened in September 2017 and is the first all-through school to open in Slough. We now have children in Reception, Year 1, 2, 3, 4, 7 and 8. We are currently in a temporary site in the centre of Slough and will be moving to a brand new building in 2020. 

Central to our ethos is ensuring that pupils are ready to learn and this is reflected in our Learning Hub. The hub is a central location in the school led by our Inclusion Manager/SENCo and is designed to provide 1:1 and small group support to those children across the whole school who need it. 

We are now looking for an experienced colleague to join the team as a learning mentor to help us to address barriers to learning and achievement through small group work and 1:1 supportive relationships. They will also support the induction of pupils into the school or back in to class, assessing their readiness to learn. As a mentor they will provide direct support and guidance in relation to study skills, personal organisation, revision and examination techniques. We would also want them to run group sessions and workshops for parents at school and advise parents on behaviour strategies and parenting skills. 

The successful candidate will assess, monitor, evaluate and record pupil progress and prepare reports as required. As an experienced colleague they would also deliver other work as required.

What can we offer you?

  • A great place to work where you will feel valued for your hard work. 
  • CPD to further develop your skills.
  • Opportunities to grow with the school. 

We are looking for someone who:

  • Has recent relevant experience of working in a school
  • Is a proactive and flexible team player
  • Is able to use their own initiative to support children’s learning.
