Batley Multi Academy Trust’s sole purpose is to provide a great education for Primary and Secondary learners throughout a local family of schools. The Trust is passionately committed to the communities of Batley, Birstall, Dewsbury and our surrounding areas, serving our local learners and their families in order to secure excellent educational outcomes, partnered with high aspirations. Batley Multi Academy Trust currently comprises Batley Girls’ High School, Batley Grammar School, Field Lane Junior, Infant and Nursery School, Healey Junior, Infant and Nursery School, Manorfield Infant and Nursery School and Upper Batley High School. We provide high quality education for all young people. This collaboration enables us to share expertise, knowledge and best practice to ensure academic and pastoral excellence throughout all of our schools, with all schools embracing the same overall ethos and values, whilst maintaining their own unique characters.

Batley Grammar School is a “good school” (Ofsted Oct 2018) and we continue our school improvement journey to become an outstanding school. We aim to combine our traditional ethos and culture together with a modern approach to teaching and learning. Visitors regularly comment about the friendly atmosphere and calm, purposeful learning environment being palpable. “Staff are proud of their school ….”; “It is a place where pupils can indeed ‘believe, grow and succeed”; “Pupils are committed to learning, they are respectful in classrooms and they try their best”; “Your school is a calm place to be, and a happy place to learn”. (Ofsted October 2018) At Batley Grammar School we value staff who take pride in their work and who are willing to contribute fully to the life of the school including its extra-curricular programme.

We are looking for someone with the enthusiasm to engage and provide holistic support for our students. You will work as part of a team including teachers and other staff to assist students in overcoming their barriers to learning so they can achieve their full potential. This will include providing practical support for learning, educational activities and helping them to develop social skills, in order to secure student physical and emotional wellbeing.

This is an exciting opportunity to join a supportive forward thinking Trust, who in return for your commitment and hard work, will support you to achieve your own career goals and aspirations.
