Vacancy for Pastoral Support Inclusion
Full time, 37 hours per week
Monday – Friday Term time only
We are hoping to appoint an outstanding, highly motivated, enthusiastic and innovative Pastoral support worker to manage our inclusion unit. We are looking for someone to join our growing, dynamic and supportive school and take responsibility for the pastoral welfare of a designated group of students within our inclusion and base unit. You will be responsible for ensuring work is provided by Teachers and set at an appropriate level.
You will also be responsible for supporting with behavior in school, establishing productive working relationships with students and acting as a role model. This role will include taking statements from students relating to incidents, and supporting students who present with challenging behavior using de-escalation techniques as appropriate.
Join us and you will be part of a fantastic pastoral team with a strong ethos. We are a creative forward thinking department and believe in working collaboratively, sharing ideas and supporting each other to achieve great things.
Success is seen throughout our ambitious and consistently oversubscribed 11-19 school, which enjoys strong community and international links. Our commitment to excellence in education is recognised nationally. This can be shown following our recent successful bid for a Post 16 free school. The North West Leeds Sixth Form Centre will be opening alongside Horsforth School and will not only increase opportunities for students but also our colleagues who will be given the opportunity to work across two sites, in other words, there’s never been a more exciting time to join us.
For our 1400 students, Horsforth School provides an engaging environment of discovery and growth. For our colleagues too, this setting offers some great benefits. Located in north-west Leeds, the school is just five miles from the city centre with its thriving retail, leisure and cultural facilities, yet on the edge of open countryside. York, Harrogate and the Dales are within easy reach.
