Pastoral Support Worker 

Full-time / term time +2 weeks

Required for September

Salary Grade 4 £16,491 - £17,841 pro rata (£18,319 - £19,819 FTE)

Several schools have a House system underpinning their pastoral care, but very few have as many as eight Houses. Relationships within the House are strengthened through regular House assemblies and internal competitions which also provide an opportunity for friendly rivalry between the Houses.

The Academy’s House system is named after the lighthouses standing at various points along the south coast, providing illumination, aide navigation and safe harbour for mariners and wayfarers.  At The Bourne Academy we aspire to do likewise for all our students. The Academy seeks to broaden the horizons of all its students.  From the moment a child enters the Academy the Houses offer pastoral care and support which helps confidence to grow.  This creates the platform on which academic success can be built. 

Every individual, their needs and aspirations, are important.  The Academy values every child and every adult associated with it.  We aim to create a culture in which every person is treated with dignity and respect. 

Main Purpose:  To work with the Director of Personal Development, Behaviour and Welfare and Heads of House, who head the work of form tutors, to ensure the welfare and progress of students in their learning, personal development and transition through KS3 and KS4 and into the 6th form.

This role is demanding and rewarding, and you must like children!

We invest in our staff and we have a fantastic CPD programme for everyone to access.

All posts are subject to enhanced DBS checks. The Bourne Academy is an equal opportunities employer.
