Pastoral Support Officer job summary

Due to our increasing PAN and student numbers, we are excited to offer the opportunity to join our academy as our staff body continues to grow and support our larger year groups of 220 students. This is an exciting time to join our academy as we celebrate our Outstanding Academy Inspection in November 2023. Inspectors stated that Bristnall Hall Academy is a “truly inclusive and harmonious school” and that “everyone is proud to be part of a close-knit school community that is working together with a common purpose.” Our staff “feel valued” and our classrooms “ooze enthusiasm and productivity”.

We are seeking to appoint an individual with good interpersonal and communication skills, with a real drive to enhance students’ experience of secondary education. The ideal candidate will be an ambitious professional with at least three years’ experience of working with young people in a secondary school. Reporting to the Achievement Coordinator, this role will involve collaborating with the wider pastoral team and other colleagues to improve attainment and progress for all students. This will include leading on behaviour, attendance and welfare issues for identified year groups and being one of the first points of contact for parents and external agencies. The successful candidate will join an academy which is dynamic and inspiring; creating a culture of outstanding success amongst our students. To succeed, you will have a good academic standard of general education to GCSE grade C/4 in English and Maths and have a patient, caring and sympathetic personality. We are keen to secure a high calibre professional who can make a telling contribution to our team. The department is part of a well led, mutually supportive Learning Support team; there is a very strong commitment to improving standards. The appointed candidate will work collaboratively with colleagues and will be supported by a strong SLT.

Why choose Bristnall Hall Academy? We have a key focus on staff well-being, with a number of initiatives in place across the academy including bespoke departmental marking and assessment policies which have dramatically reduced teacher workload. If you want to inspire, aspire and achieve, come and join something special and make your mark.

In return, you can expect fantastic Professional Development opportunities, a comprehensive employee benefits package, shopping discounts, cycle-to-work and gym schemes, cinema tickets and an employee assistance programme.
