35 hours a week.
Fixed term, one year contract.
We are seeking talented, friendly and dynamic staff to join our established team at New Town in September 2021. This role will be crucial in supporting our aspirational ‘Good’ school to continue to improve, as we look to always provide the very best for our diverse children and families. The temporary posts are due to fluctuating pupil numbers and staffing requirements.
This role will strengthen our established and very effective pastoral team, and will provide additional support to senior leaders to help manage the increasing safeguarding requirements in school. You’ll be used to a therapeutic way of working, be passionate about keeping children safe in every aspect, and be experienced at helping children deal positively and pro-actively with their emotional and mental health.
Joining our school family means you’ll need to be:
An enthusiastic member of staff who is forward thinking and able to adapt quickly and easily.
Someone who puts children at the heart of all planning and practice.
Dynamic and fast-paced, finding effective solutions at every turn whilst considering others’ points of view.
A team player with the ability to work well both individually, as part of a phase and as a whole staff.
Thoughtful and reflective, and enjoy using research and literature to help shape your practice where relevant.
A kind and caring person, enjoying the bustling life of our diverse school family and always looking to recognise our polite and kind children.
In return, our team can offer:
An optimistic and close-knit senior leadership team with a track record of improving schools.
A firmly established ethos of caring for one another in our school family.
A strong middle leadership team who will guide and nurture you through your role.
A commitment to professional development, and a belief in driving improvement through looking outwards to the world beyond our walls.
A beautiful Victorian school with an abundance of space and opportunity, filled with light, life and love.
The opportunity to work with a wider professional team of three unique schools, all brilliantly supported by a Trust who strongly value the individual school’s character, ethos and approaches.
Secure car parking and a staff well-being package.
Visits to the school may be possible depending on local restrictions, and prospective candidates are warmly welcomed to book a preliminary phone call or Teams call before they apply, should they like to discuss the role or school further with the Headteacher.
For further information and application pack please contact Natasha Kirby, Trust Operations Manager on 07538 539690 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org.
