Educational and Pastoral Assistant job summary

As part of The Wensum Trust, we believe that our shared duty is to help every child to develop into high achieving, confident, healthy, caring and resilient members of their family and community. We want our schools to be healthy environments where both children and staff can develop and where strong, positive relationships are key. Our school, therefore, practices a relational approach with children, our families and our communities. We are particularly interested in working with people who share Our Qualities; who will work effectively and flexibly as part of a team.

Lodge Lane is a two form entry Infant School in Old Catton. The school focuses all of its learning around six values: kindness, teamwork, challenge, respect, curiosity and perseverance and through these values, we follow an inquiry based approach to the curriculum.

We are looking for a part time Educational and Pastoral Assistant, to work across the school for 13 hours a week. This is a part time role, working from 8.15am-3.15pm on a Thursday and Friday. You would be joining a team of experienced teachers and support staff and would work both alongside the teacher to support the children in their learning, play and social and emotional well-being, and also on your own to deliver intervention to individuals and small groups of children. For the majority of the time you will be supporting children with significant special educational needs (ASD), including intimate care so experience in this area would be an advantage.

Being a part of The Wensum Trust’s family of schools offers employees unique experiences to work alongside our strategic partners and to collaborate with a wider network of staff. As a trust we have professionalised the role of education support. All of our Education and Pastoral Assistants are paid at either scale D or E with opportunities for pay progression. We believe in professional development at all levels. Therefore, we invest in our staff by providing opportunities for growth and upskilling. Our career progression pathways allow support staff to develop and advance within our schools. As a progressive trust, we aim to stay ahead of an ever-evolving educational landscape.

We value our staff and are committed to supporting their wellbeing. We have an Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) which all staff can access 24 hours a day. The EAP provides counselling services, legal information and guidance, musculoskeletal services and online resources such as nutrition diaries, healthy eating plans, personal coaching questionnaires and tools and fitness programmes.

We care about bringing together the most able people, to help us achieve our vision of providing a rounded education for children, quality support for their families and opportunities to enrich our communities.
