We are seeking to appoint a highly-motivated, enthusiastic and hard-working colleague to join our pastoral team in the role of Learning & Behaviour Mentor. This is a non-teaching role in which the person appointed will be responsible for helping to identify students who require support and then mentoring these identified students. They will oversee the effective daily running of the school’s Student Service Area and help ensure that there are positive resolutions to incidents. They will liaise with colleagues across the school on pastoral issues involving students of all ages and will support the Designated Safeguarding Lead in their duty to keep children safe in education.
The person appointed to the role will be required to develop positive relationships with students, colleagues and parents. They will uphold the ethos of the school, demanding the highest standards of conduct and behaviour from students, as well as supporting students to overcome difficulties that they may face. It will also be necessary for the person appointed to liaise effectively with outside agencies and to use data to monitor the effectiveness of interventions put into place to support students.
Highams Park is a very successful co-educational 11-18 Academy converter with 1600 students on roll. Results achieved at GCSE and A-level are good and the school was judged to be good in its March 2017 Ofsted inspection. We pride ourselves on being a comprehensive school that serves the local area and in which there is a strong culture of traditional values coupled with an emphasis on high quality, forward-thinking teaching and learning.
