The Opportunity:

We are seeking to appoint an Education Welfare Officer to join our pastoral team from September 2019. The successful candidate will be required to work in our student support team alongside five pastoral leads, two behaviour mentors, a school counsellor and one other education welfare officers to support students and families in removing barriers to school attendance and driving up rates of attendance to school.

We welcome applications from experienced education welfare officers, attendance officers with a desire to train as an EWO as well as colleagues who have experience supporting young people through work in other public sector roles such as the police, the NHS, social care and the probation service.

Our pastoral team is very supportive with a strong shared vision. Our students are at the heart of everything we do. We are at the start of an exciting new chapter in our journey and are looking for someone who can build and lead our student support team to deliver the very best care for our
students.

The Academy:

Noel-Baker Academy is a rapidly improving school centred around a dedicated team of people who are working together to achieve our mission of delivering an unashamedly academic and knowledge rich education to our students.

Everything we do at NBA is underpinned by our passionate belief that outstanding schooling is the right of every child, and a determination that such a vision is achievable. We believe in and aspire to provide an inclusive education for all. That is, high expectations of and for all pupils, an insistence on excellent behaviour, equal access to an academically rigorous curriculum taught by highly skilled subject specialists and a sharp focus on high value enrichment opportunities that will enable all students to excel.

We will never accept that family background, socio-economic circumstances or prior attainment will inevitably limit young people’s potential and so the profile of our intake will always be a reason for our provision, and never an excuse for our outcomes.

Our students are entitled to the very best breadth and depth of provision and we are unapologetically ambitious for every student, no matter what their background, prior attainment or needs.

Our Academy is a warm and friendly place to work. We value our staff and believe that we are starting out on a journey that will transform our school and the lives of our pupils for the better.

If you want to be part of a team of people who are working together to achieve a shared vision, where you are free to teach “the best that has been thought and said,” where classroom practice is underpinned by research informed pedagogical approaches and where you will be part of building a unashamedly academic and disciplined culture then we want to hear from you.

We are looking for someone who:

  • Is an ambitious practitioner and who wants to make a real impact on further driving up standards.
  • Is keen to play a key role in developing our whole school ethos and who is fully aligned to our vision.
  • Is personable, pragmatic and can energise and motivate students and colleagues alike.
  • Has the highest expectations of what all students can and will achieve.
  • Is committed to working as a part of a whole school team.

In return, the successful candidate will work in a school where:

  • There are clear classroom routines, so time is not wasted
  • There is a centralized support team who, along with senior leaders, manage student conduct
  • Staff are encouraged to partake in weekly research discussions and the development of whole school strategy
  • Staff are valued as professionals and experts in their field
  • Weekly CPD time is built in to the school day to allow all staff to develop and grow professionally
