Pivot Academy is expanding, join us!
At Pivot we believe children deserve better. In our Academies we teach and support children and young people from Key Stages 1 – 5 who have been excluded from school, for whom mainstream education is simply not working, or those with an EHCP who require a specialist placement. Every day our teams do incredible work, making a huge difference to some of the most complex and challenging children, many of whom come to us with some really traumatic backgrounds. We are doing great things – but we have so much more to do.
Even before the pandemic the demand for good quality provision far exceeded supply. The past year has widened the gap even more – and we are stepping up to the challenge.
Pivot Academy at Salus House will open in September 2021, providing additional high-quality capacity for children and young people with complex SEMH and other learning needs and we are seeking a resilient Attendance and Family Support Worker to join the team.
In this role, you will bridge the gap between education and social care and family links within the academy. You will work closely with the Headteacher, teachers, behaviour leads and provide advice and support to young people, their parents or carer’s and at times to schools and other agencies. As the Attendance and Family Support Worker, you will also act as the Designated Safeguarding Lead, responding to and addressing any safeguarding concerns raised including making referrals to statutory agencies.
Working at Pivot will give you a real chance to change our student’s lives and we truly believe you will find working here a rewarding experience.
