Kenton School is a vibrant and inclusive secondary school at the heart of the community in which we serve. With around 1800 students, we are amongst the largest schools in the North East. At Kenton we are passionate about providing the very best education possible for young people in our city, our region and nationally and our strong and committed team share our vision of ensuring all our students not only reach their potential but that they are confident, happy and resilient students who treat each other with compassion and respect.
At the heart of this is our pastoral team and an exciting opportunity has arisen due to internal promotion for an experienced and highly competent specialist to join us in the role of Year Leader, supporting a designated year group through their school experience.
Working in pairs, our Year Leaders work with and support teachers and classroom support staff, parents/carers and other professionals and agencies to effectively manage the full range of pastoral issues, including behavior management, safeguarding and welfare and formulate and implement strategies to ensure barriers are removed so every child is able to achieve their potential.
With experience working in either education, children’s social care or another children’s sector pastoral role, we are seeking candidates with significant and demonstrable experience working effectively with secondary age children with social, emotional and behavioural issues.
Your knowledge of the key issues affecting behaviour, attendance and welfare will be combined with excellent interpersonal skills to not only motivate and challenge students, including designing and delivering inspirational assemblies, but to work effectively with parents/carers and other colleagues, professionals and agencies to ensure the pastoral needs of the child are met.
In return, Kenton School offers fantastic developmental possibilities due to its size, facilities and a forward thinking management and staff working together to offer the best available chances for our students.
