Required to start as soon as possible.
Working as part of the Welfare Team, Pupil Support is an exciting role that is pivotal to the support we want every young person at the Academy to have. Supported by the Academy Leadership Team, you will take a key role within an Academy wide strategy focusing upon pupils in both Primary and Secondary who may require more support and guidance to attend and fully engage in all of their lessons. Young people flourish when their health, mental health and wellbeing is understood and prioritised: your role responds to circumstances in which young people may need help with this. You will be working alongside individual pupils as well as in small groups to ensure they are fully prepared to learn and are successful within their lessons, extra-curricular activities and their overall wellbeing.
This is a non-teaching role and would be suitable for individuals looking for a route into working in schools with a teaching qualification or without. If you are passionate about ensuring all children have the opportunity to thrive, and are interested in pursuing a career within a pastoral role, this is the role for you.
You must be well organised, have the ability to prioritise work, be able to lead by example and to work on your own initiative. You will be a determined and resilient individual who believes that a culture of excellent behaviour for learning and respect is vital to the progress of our pupils and key to supporting them in unlocking their full potential. In fulfilling the role, you will be required to deal with pupils, parents/carers and outside agencies in a professional, prompt and confidential manner. If you are the kind of person who strives for excellence, likes to do things well and who wants lots of opportunities to develop your own practice and try new methods, then this is the place for you.
ESW is committed to safeguarding and protecting the welfare of children, and applicants must be willing to undergo child protection screening appropriate to the post, including checks with past employers and an enhanced disclosure via the Disclosure and Barring Service.
