Barndale House School is a happy, friendly residential special school in Alnwick for children and young people aged 2-19 years of age with a range of special educational needs and disabilities. Our residential provision was inspected by Ofsted in October 2019 and we are proud that it was graded ‘Good’ in all areas.

We are searching for a caring, dynamic and self-motivated Residential Shift Coordinator to support the Headteacher, existing Head of Care and small team of hardworking residential key workers to assist with the operational management and strategic development of the provision, in addition to having some responsibility for the planning, organisation and delivery of activities for our very special pupils.

The role will also involve working alongside our whole school staff team to promote our school aims and values.

You should ‘lead by example’ and be capable of maintaining a high quality approach to the delivery of care and the 24 hour curriculum. Our school and residential team of staff are committed to ensuring that our children and young people’s different abilities and individualities are celebrated – at Barndale House School and residential ‘every day is an opportunity to shine’.

Previous experience in a similar education or social care setting and an NVQ level 3 qualification relating to children, young people / social care are an essential requirement for this role.
