This is a unique opportunity to work in a team with a specific role to support pupils and their families to overcome disadvantage and to maximise opportunities for young people.

The hours (36 hours per week, 39 weeks per year) will be based around the school day, week and term time, with some flexibility to include 1 or 2 days in the holidays as required in lieu of a term time date by arrangement.

As a school we aim to treat every pupil as an individual and to deliver the highest standards of education to enable them to fulfil their potential in a positive learning environment.
