The Trustees are seeking to appoint a Student Support Officer for Excelsior Academy, based in Rainbird Primary School.

Excelsior is part of the Laidlaw Schools Trust, created to give children from socially and economically challenged areas the best possible education and start in life. In September 2013, we became Newcastle’s first all-through Academy educating children from age 3 to 19 years old.

The successful candidate will work with the Primary Welfare Lead, as part of the Inclusive Learning Team, to promote positive attendance, punctuality and behaviour by offering high quality support to parents/carers as well as liaising with appropriate agencies/partners. This is an important role in our continuous drive for further improvement.

Laidlaw Schools Trust is a growing multi academy trust in the North East of England, serving children and families in the west of Newcastle, Sedgefield and in Pennywell, Sunderland. We pride ourselves in being a progressive, inclusive trust that supports every child to develop their talents whatever they may be and to reach their academic potential. It is important that as a learning organisation we adapt and change to the needs of our pupils. We take care to value and develop all colleagues to make sure they can do their very best for children across the Trust’s schools. Our Academies also enjoy strong support from an experienced LST central team, based in Newcastle upon Tyne.
