What skills and experience we're looking for

We are seeking to appoint an additional Learning Mentor to join our dedicated and supportive staff team (starting September 2024).

At this key time in the Academy’s rapid development, we require an enthusiastic and committed individual who will support our pupils, particularly those who need additional help, to overcome any barriers to learning. Over the last few years, we have seen an increase in the number of pupils with SEND, including those who need more support with their social, emotional and mental health needs and therefore wish to expand our team in order to support all our pupils in the best way that we can.

The new Learning Mentor will work closely with our SENCO, our current Learning Mentor and the Senior Leadership Team and wider staff to ensure the best pastoral support for our pupils.

The position will involve supporting individual pupils who may be experiencing difficulties accessing classroom learning and therefore you may be based within our Hub provision or could be working alongside pupils in the classroom. Previous experience of mentoring or emotion coaching would be useful. The role involves providing individuals or groups of pupils with guidance in a constructive and supportive manner.

We are seeking to appoint someone who:

  • Is committed to supporting the holistic development of all pupils
  • Is a team player who has a positive attitude
  • Has high expectations of children as well as themselves
  • Has good communication skills with children, colleagues, parents and visitors
  • Has experience of working with families and children with additional needs, demonstrating empathy and understanding
  • Is committed to ongoing professional development
  • Is committed to maintaining positive parent partnerships and will support the ethos of our Church school
  • Is dedicated to helping our children ‘find their fantastic’ at St Botolph’s CE Academy

What the school offers its staff

We can offer you:

  • Leadership who have an open-door policy and are visible in school
  • The support and expertise of a committed and passionate teaching team and Trust
  • Pupils with good behaviour and an eagerness to learn within an environment where we are always striving to improve
  • A happy and caring school community
  • A commitment to support your continued professional development, both within school and through the Trust
  • An atmosphere of humour, warmth and welcome every day

Commitment to safeguarding

Our organisation is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults. We expect all staff, volunteers and trustees to share this commitment.

Our recruitment process follows the keeping children safe in education guidance.
