What the school offers its staff

The school is a founding member of The Tarka Learning Partnership (TLP), an academy trust with a vision to empower young people in North Devon through learning. The Trust includes Park’s main feeder primary schools - Eden Park Academy, Sticklepath Community Primary Academy, Landkey Community Primary Academy, Roundswell Community Primary Academy, Newport Community School Primary Academy, Fremington Primary School along with North Molton Primary School. TLP also includes the Devon Primary SCITT, a partner dedicated to primary school teacher training.

TLP supports Park and ensures academic rigour, collaboration and the further development of teaching and learning. Park also has strategic alliances with the North Devon Academic Board, and is a member of South West Institute for Teaching (SWIFT) and the North Devon Teaching School Alliance. This reflects a key focus of our vision and governance to ensure continual school development.

Further details about the role

We are looking for a motivated and enthusiastic individual to work with a group of students who have been withdrawn from mainstream lessons due to their behaviour in class. This could be a planned intervention to support behaviour, a planned sanction, or an ad-hoc removal from lessons if a student is unable to cope. This is both a challenging and rewarding role for the right individual.

We require someone who can work well with students with identified social, emotional and/or mental health needs, and who struggle to manage their own behaviour. The Inclusion and Behaviour Support Assistant must be able to maintain a calm and positive classroom environment, support students to reflect on and improve their behaviour, develop strategies with students so they are able to take ownership of their behaviour as well as help them complete work so that they do not fall behind.

Candidates will be working as part of the Retracking Team to provide complimentary service to teaching and support staff; to promote the inclusion and engagement of all students, ensuring equal access to opportunities to learn and develop; to encourage students to interact positively and cooperatively with others. Although the short term goal will be to ensure students are ready to learn for their next session, it will also be important to support students in being self-reflective and setting personal goals. It will be important to communicate with all internal support to enable students to reintegrate successfully back in lessons.

Nestled close to the beautiful North Devon coast and at the edge of Exmoor, The Park Community School is one of two 11-16 comprehensive schools in Barnstaple. Park was opened in 1972 following the re-organisation of selective education in the town; however, the origins of the school date back to 1910, with the site housing both the Boys and Girls grammar schools. Many elements of the original buildings remain and these help to link the school to its proud and strong history.
The school currently educates 1472 students, mainly from the town of Barnstaple and outlying villages. In recent years, the popularity of the school has meant that the geographical catchment has increased, with many students now travelling some distance to join us. Most year groups are currently oversubscribed.
The school is a founding member of The Tarka Learning Partnership (TLP), an academy trust with a vision to empower young people in North Devon through learning. The Trust includes Park’s main feeder primary schools - Eden Park Academy, Sticklepath Community Primary Academy, Landkey Community Primary Academy, Roundswell Community Primary Academy, Newport Community School Primary Academy, Fremington Primary School along with North Molton Primary School.

Any successful candidate would be subject to a fully enhanced DBS check, and would be expected to adhere to our Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy as well as other mandatory policies
