Would you like to work within a vibrant secondary academy? Impacting positively on young people’s lives?

We’re looking for a Behaviour Support Worker to join our team in September 2022!

As a Behaviour Support Worker you will deliver behaviour support across the school working as part of the Student Support team, as well as implementing behaviour modification interventions specific to issues raised by the Student Support team or subject teachers with particular focus on students with emotional or mental health issues. You will also cover and support duties throughout the school, where required. These are exciting new additional posts in our team!

This role is 37 hours per week, term-time only + 5 days. The actual salary is £17,408 – £18,842 + AMAZING benefits!

At the top of your game, you’ll communicate effectively with students, parents and colleagues, clearly understand and apply Restorative Practice principles and remain resilient, robust and resourceful.

You’ll do all this whilst capturing the spirit of our vision and values and role-modelling exceptional professional behaviours.

Co-op Academy Priesthorpe is situated in Pudsey and just 15 minutes from both Leeds and Bradford centre with places for 1250 students and 135 staff.

Our Values

We have a strong culture which creates a positive working environment. We follow the Co-op’s ‘Ways of Being’ which are:

Succeed together – Cooperating is what makes us different; we’re better and stronger when we work together.
Be yourself, always – We bring our best self to the academy, so that we each contribute and respect others for doing the same. Of course, being yourself isn’t about excusing poor behaviours that contradict our other Ways of Being Co-op.
Do what matters most – What matters most is ensuring that our students achieve the best possible outcomes.
Show you care – We care about our Trust, our colleagues, our students, their parents, our Co-op and communities, now and for the future.

So, if you believe in our values we would love to hear from you!
