What skills and experience we're looking for

If you are seeking an authentic experience in a progressive and award-winning school, then consider this your personal invitation to USH. We are a heavily oversubscribed community school which proudly and successfully delivers values-led education. We are known for our excellent career progression routes and we attract professionals who are willing to contribute to our sustained success whilst embracing our family ethos.

We are looking to appoint an Internal Exclusion Coordinator to work alongside the Guidance Team to raise educational achievement of identified vulnerable students.

  • Have some knowledge of effective intervention programmes and the use of restorative practices
  • Have experience of and commitment to working with young people with emotional difficulties or challenging behaviour
  • Experience of working with children with additional needs and be strong with behaviour management
  • Have strong communication skills

  • A dedicated team who place students at the heart of everything
  • Amazing students who are proud to be part of the school
  • An open and honest professional culture and learning community
  • Excellent CPD opportunities and Training and Development Programmes.
  • In-house Teaching School.
  • An individual induction programme supported by a mentor.
  • Networking groups for Teachers, Business Managers, Site Teams and IT staff.
  • Eligibility to join the Teachers’ Pension Scheme or Local Government Pension Scheme.
  • Generous holiday entitlement for staff working 52 weeks per year which increases with length of service.
  • Free eye tests up to the value of £25 for users of VDU equipment and contribution up to the value of £60 towards the purchase of glasses specifically for the use of display screen equipment (where all conditions are met).
  • Opportunity to become a school workplace Health and Wellbeing representative, meeting with other schools on a termly basis and feeding into the Health and Wellbeing strategy.
  • Access to the Trust Health and Wellbeing pages.
  • Access to a staff benefits portal through Sodexo and Portsmouth payroll.
  • Free confidential telephone and face to face counselling for staff and family members.

The successful applicant will be welcomed and supported in our friendly environment where we have a passion for learning.
