Alderman Knight is a maintained special school for children and young people with a range of needs, aged 7 to 19. During the last 10 years the school has undergone a complete new build for all phases. The final phase of our school building will be opened in June 2021 ready for September 2021. In September 2021 the school will have approximately 220 pupils & Students and just over 100 staff.
The school is for children and young people whose primary needs have been identified as:
• Communication and Interaction, and
• Cognition and Learning
They may also have associated complex learning needs and this results in a wide attainment range.
To support the continued growth of the school, the Governors are looking to appoint two dedicated, experienced, confident and effective Pastoral Support Assistants to join the committed and supportive Pastoral team at this successful special school. Applications from staff currently working in mainstream and special schools are very welcome.
These appointments will mean the school has four pastoral support co-ordinators who support across all Key Stages. The focus is on supporting the personal, social development of all our young people as well as supporting them develop effective behaviours for learning.
The pastoral co-ordinators work under the direction of the senior management pastoral leads and with the three pastoral managers, to support pupils and staff across the primary and secondary phases of the school.
Please note Alderman Knight is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. All posts will be subject to a DBS check, and receipt of two references prior to interview.
