Dear prospective applicant,
Thank you for expressing an interest in this key vacancy at our college.
Crown Hills Community College has been serving the community since 1950 and continues to be a Good school after last being inspected in January 2016.
Having taken over as Principal in August 2017 I am appreciative of all the work that has been done before my arrival which will allow me to grow the College even further. My desire is that we do not become a College that is driven by OFSTED and whether we are GOOD or OUTSTANDING. I want us to be at the forefront of educational excellence because we want to provide the best educational experience possible for the children in our care. This is extremely difficult in a climate of ever increasing accountability and diminishing resources. However I sincerely believe that if we lead this community by staying true to our values then it is possible.
I have therefore spent time with staff and exploring what it is we stand for and after a school wide consultation have decided that ASPIRATION, COMMITMENT AND SUCCESS are the three key drivers that will support the development of our pupils. The social inclusion team support pupils with all three strands and the structure is set out at the end of the document.
The Social Inclusion Worker will work with the pastoral team to support challenging behavioural learning difficulties and foster the participation of students in the social and academic aspects of college life.
The successful candidate will be committed to the students and college life and will possess the ability to communicate effectively and be able to raise the standards of learning for all of the students that they are required to work with.
As a valued member of the Pastoral team the post holder will primarily be involved with running either a behaviour support base for on calls, or an internal seclusion room or a combination of the two. They will also be involved in various duties through the day including gate and lunch duties. They will work alongside the other members of the team that will include Assistant Head of Years, Heads of Year and Inclusion Support Workers.
The post holder will need to use engagement techniques in order to reach young people to improve their participation in the curriculum.
We have an outstanding reputation for our inclusive work with EAL and SEND pupils. However one of our key areas of development is nurturing and growing our more able pupils, both academically and culturally.
We want to build a learning community that is built on trust and continuous professional development.
Candidates should pay attention to the person specification and explain within their application how they meet the criteria, whilst also describing what they will bring to the post from their own knowledge, experience and understanding of supporting vulnerable children in a school/college setting.
Crown Hills Community College is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. All staff and volunteers are therefore expected to behave in such a way that supports this commitment.
Appointment to this post will be subject to the following satisfactory pre-employment checks:
• Relevant work qualifications
• Right to work in the UK
• Barred List Check (previously List 99)
• Disclosure & Barring Service Check
Further information about the college’s aims and values can be found on our website. We expect applicants to be committed to equal opportunities, multi-cultural education and team-working.
