Our client is situated in Scissett (HD8), and caters for Key Stage 2, 3 and 4 pupils with complex Social, Emotional and Mental Health needs.

The purpose of the Pastoral Support Worker is to work as a member of the school's pastoral team, working alongside teaching staff, parents and pupils. The underpinning value of the work is to ensure that every pupil achieves their potential through the provision of targeted support and intervention, working with the school's pastoral leaders. Under the direction of the Director of Student Progress and Progress Leaders, the Pastoral Support Worker will contribute to all aspects of pupils' well being and achievement.

This will involve a primary focus on ensuring that every child achieves their learning potential. This is to be achieved by managing their progression: an oversight of assessment, monitoring and target setting of individual pupils and groups allied to the school vision and pastoral support as necessary.

The role will involve a mixture of dealing with parents, with pupils' behavioural and attendance issues, intervening with difficulties around the school in terms of pastoral support and also working within our pastoral support network. This will involve time in our Intervention Room and time working with identified groups on a range of issues.

Key responsibilities:

  • To liaise with staff responsible for assessment, in ensuring that information is received on the progress of all pupils
  • To assist Progress Leaders in taking necessary action and intervention as a result of poor performance
  • Management of Rewards and Sanctions: suitable and consistent intervention
  • Liaise with Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO) to ensure pupils who are identified as being in need of support for academic reasons receive help
  • Liaise with Inclusion Leader as appropriate
  • To assist in leading the vision for the development of pupils, in terms of year group assemblies, reward and achievement assemblies
  • To assist in enforcing sanctions and discipline for the key stage, in accordance with school policy
  • Assisting in the daily organisation of logistical matters: parents' evenings, meetings with parents and other agencies
  • Working with groups of pupils or mentoring individual pupils to improve progress and positive attitudes towards school

The purpose of the Pastoral Support Worker is to provide a flexible and supportive member of staff who can assist Progress Leaders and Managers in the effective daily management of the pupils, as well as providing a supportive framework for individual and group intervention as necessary. The nature of the role is such that flexibility and self-motivation are crucial to success.
