We are seeking to appoint a Student Wellbeing Manager (SWM) for maternity cover to act as a caring and consistent champion for young people, supporting students in achieving their academic and personal potential. The role includes providing cover for absent teachers as part of the SWM team. The post will be for 37 hours per week over 38 weeks (term time only).

This post would suit a candidate who genuinely likes working with young people, helping and supporting them to succeed and reducing barriers to learning. The post provides valuable experience as a route into teaching. Experience of working in a school environment would be an advantage but is not essential.

We are proud of our students and encourage them to be proud to be part of something special. Our most recent Ofsted report said that “Fitzharrys offers a very caring and supportive community where pupils flourish.” Students and staff talk about the ‘Fitzharrys family’, and the Student Wellbeing Manager role is a fundamental element of this culture.

Our ethos of aspiration, opportunity and integrity are at the heart of Fitzharrys’ sustained success. We are a good school (Ofsted, June 2016) with strong results that improve year on year. Ofsted praised our “warm and welcoming culture with a shared drive for continual improvement”. This is a very special place, and we are looking for the right candidate who is excited at the prospect of joining us and taking such a key role in our continued success.

All Fitzharrys staff benefit from our induction programme and our comprehensive CPD programme as part of a school community committed to getting the best from everyone. Through our focus on high quality teaching and learning, and excellent behaviour, our school continues to grow and develop.

We are proud of our students, and in turn they are proud to be part of the Fitzharrys community. Parents are supportive of the work of the school, recognising our high aspirations for every student who attends; they are both challenged to achieve highly, and supported in doing so.

This is an exciting time to join us in our continued development. If you want to be part of a school with strong working relationships at the heart of every interaction, a committed and caring staff, and a culture of working to get the very best from every child, then we look forward to meeting you.
