We wish to appoint an inspirational and highly motivated 6th Form Pastoral Manager to make a real impact in this rapidly improving school. The school has undergone significant change over the last three years with improving outcomes, a new ethos & uniform, excellent student behaviour and a 30% increase in the school roll. Some of these changes were reflected in a positive Ofsted inspection in May 2018, where our leadership & management, 6th form, and students’ personal development, behaviour and welfare, were all graded “Good”. The successful candidate will possess energy, vision and enthusiasm, and believe that every young person deserves the very best education.

A commitment to strong pastoral care and guidance, and a willingness to learn, train and develop as a Pastoral Manager are all essential. We can offer you the opportunity to work with a talented and supportive team of professionals. Our whole school pastoral team in 2020 will consist of Heads of Year and Pastoral Managers in each year group, and dedicated safeguarding, SEN, attendance and behaviour professionals. The Sixth Form Pastoral Manager will work within a smaller, dedicated Sixth Form team.

Framwellgate School Durham is a rapidly growing 11-18 non-selective secondary school within a Multi Academy Trust. The school roll is set to have increased by 35% in three years and by September 2020 we expect to have more than 1320+ students on roll.

This is an outstanding opportunity for a talented individual to join our dynamic and forward-thinking team. We are looking for someone with a caring, empathetic but firm manner who can work alongside our Head of Sixth Form to support them in all aspects of pastoral care of our students. This will include:

• Liaising with parents
• Providing support and guidance to our young people
• Engaging students in all aspects of school life
• Working to ensure attendance remains high
• Ensuring a smooth transition for students joining the Sixth Form
• Dealing with day to day issues as they arise
• Supervising students (on a rota basis with other pastoral managers and senior/middle leaders) within our withdrawal room.

If you have recently applied for one of our main school Pastoral Manager positions, you need NOT submit another application. If you wish to be considered for this role, please email Fiona Thompson and your application will be looked at in relation to this post.

Framwellgate School Durham is committed to the safeguarding of children and young people. An enhanced disclosure from the DBS and barred list clearance will be required for this post, together with completion of a pre-employment health questionnaire.
