An academy of over 470 pupils, Court Lane Junior’s aim is to inspire children to be the very best they can be now and in the future with excellent teaching and enjoyable learning at the heart of what they do. 

You will assist the lead of an effective Pastoral team that provide an efficient and supportive service to pupils that are either at risk of, or are underachieving, due to a variety of reasons (such as social, emotional mental health (SEMH) needs) to enable them to overcome their barriers to learning. In liaison with the Pastoral Manager and Senior Leadership Team, you will assist with the development of pupils’ emotional wellbeing to raise the standards of achievement and behaviour, and improve level of attendance for the pupils with whom the team work.

You will determine appropriate support and interventions, monitoring impact for pupils with identified emotional, social and/or behavioural needs and identified as children at risk of educational breakdown and/or exclusion.  You will act as a point of contact with parents/carers and other external agencies (e.g. Social Care) in managing the programme of support for pupils who may be vulnerable e.g. HMF children and those with identified SEMH needs, ensuring regular contact is maintained, as appropriate, including attending meetings on the Academy’s behalf where other agencies are involved (e.g. TAC, TAF, CPC, CIN). 

With a flexible, reliable and enthusiastic approach, you will be committed to developing effective working relationships with children, parents, staff and other professionals, to enable the very best support for children’s learning and development, whilst promoting excellent behaviour and high standards.

You will be an enthusiastic individual, preferably with experience of working with children with additional needs.
