As part of the student support team, Pastoral Managers provide an invaluable support service to students. You will work in collaboration with Heads of Year managing safeguarding, academic progress and welfare matters. As a first point of call attached to year groups you will build relationships with students and their guardians as well as being a liaison with external agencies.
You can look forward to working ‘front line’ in student support and your key responsibilities will be:
- Providing support and intervention strategies in order to meet the pastoral needs of students at South Holderness Technology College within year groups
- Ensuring good and effective communication with all stakeholders including parents, students and members of school staff by the use of all appropriate means of communication
- Demonstrating high levels of personal literacy and communication to ensure messages are effectively and empathetically delivered
- Interviewing students following referrals related to school work, behaviour, bullying, student concerns, crisis or other incidents
- Liaising with external agencies including the Education Welfare Service. This will also involve attendance at Multi-Agency meetings
- Liaising with the Student Support Centres and acting as part of the coherent strategies within Individual Behaviour Plans, Pastoral Support Plans and Individual Education Plans.
Ideally you will be passionate about working with young people, have experience of working in education and have a proven ability to work with parents and external agencies. Applications will be considered from varied backgrounds, if you can demonstrate:
• Excellent communication skills
• Ability to work collaboratively
• Administrative and IT skills
• An understanding of welfare matters.
