Small enough to care, big enough to make a positive impact

As a 13-18 school in south east Northumberland with good standards of teaching and behaviour and a strong commitment to improvement, we believe passionately that every student should be enabled to succeed in all aspects of school life. Building on our recent ‘Good’ rating by Ofsted, we continue to strive for further improvements.

The new post of Behaviour Support Worker provides an exciting opportunity within our school. As a school we pride ourselves on providing the best experience for our students in both academic terms and pastorally, supporting our students wellbeing and mental health to achieve the best outcomes in their education.

The successful candidate will be confident in supporting children aged 13 to 16, using their specialist skills to support students' learning needs in relation to behaviour, social, emotional and mental health needs. You must have an understanding of the issues faced by our students and their families, and awareness of positive behaviour support. You will need to demonstrate resilience at work, be able to remain calm whilst implementing behaviour management strategies and act as a role model to build positive relationships with our students.

Although this post is primarily based at Astley Community High School, you may also be required to work in Whytrig Middle School as both schools share an Executive Headteacher and the same site. The working hours will be Monday to Friday 8.30am to 4pm with a half hour lunch. These times may change from time to time to meet the operational needs of the school

Visits to the school are also warmly welcomed and encouraged. Please contact Kath Lennon, Assistant Headteacher on 0191 2371505 to make an appointment.
