    We are seeking to appoint a Pastoral Support Assistant based at our satellite Saturn Centre site to support our students commencing September 2021. If you are a personable, compassionate individual who is driven to helping all students to achieve their best then this is the post for you. The successful candidate will have a passion for pastoral work, pupil progress and obtaining the best life outcomes for our students.

    Across our provisions Solihull Academy is a safe, well-ordered, caring and highly supportive learning environment that will deliver high-quality education to students who need a more closely-focused learning solution. The use of outstanding, inspiring teaching and clear, consistent guidance and support will play a pivotal role in helping each child fulfil their maximum potential for growth, self-worth, and self-regulation.

This is a key appointment for the development of the Saturn Centre, and is an exciting opportunity for you to work in an aspirational, therapeutic and innovative environment with students who need you.

    • Willingness to learn and grow alongside our provision

    About Solihull Alternative Provision Academy

    About Solihull Academy

    "Open a school", they said...so we did...

    "It’ll be great", they said...And it was, but also the toughest thing professionally any of us have done.

    "So many pupils need something different", they said... and they were correct... our students did and do need something different.

    Since April 18 we have been on a journey to use the idea of “Alternative” in Alternative Provision as a driver to create a new school for the most vulnerable pupils in the local authority, and the impact and results tell us we are making a real difference. Prior to our opening our local authority permanently excluded more secondary students than 90% of the rest of the country despite being the wealthiest borough in the West Midlands. So, in a unique partnership between the Local Authority, mainstream school and ourselves, we built a school, provision and curriculum to combat that and ensure the best possible outcomes for highest tariff students in the local authority. We have developed our school based on 4 specific targets:

    - Prevent PEX
    - Fewer FTE
    - Beat Baseline and/or KS2 targets
    - No NEETS

    Every decision we make and every action we take is based on these four targets and absolutely child-focused and, from that simple premise, we have created our Academy. If you are looking for a new challenge and have unconditional positive regard, emotional resilience and utter belief that every child deserves a better future, then maybe we and, more importantly, our students need you as part of TeamSA.

    Solihull Academy: Let's go to work!

    Any questions about our exciting School, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
