Come to work in a thriving community.

In 2021 two new schools opened – Gosforth Great Park Academy [y5 to 11] and Callerton Academy [y7 to 11].

Gosforth Junior High Academy is a highly successful school rated as ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted. Links with schools across the Gosforth pyramid are strong, allowing potential for the sharing of practice and pedagogy across all phases.

We are seeking a Senior Learning and Pastoral Supervisor to be become a member of the pastoral support staff team at Gosforth Junior High Academy.   You will be a creative, ‘hands on’ colleague and the main contact for pastoral support to students in the Academy.  This includes implementing work programmes, managing student behaviour and assisting students in relevant activities in line with the academy’s policies and procedures. You will have experience of working with young people and ideally have experience of working within a school.

You will support the pastoral system in the academy as well as working as part of the general cover team where you will be required to supervise classes during the absence of the class teacher and will be expected to work with and supervise small groups of students under the guidance of senior staff.

You will be required to take a lead role including managing the internal exclusion/isolation room, monitoring attendance and general support of pastoral systems.

We can offer you:

  • An opportunity to work in an ‘outstanding’ school
  • An opportunity to work with highly-skilled professionals
  • A new building with excellent facilities
  • Enthusiastic and motivated pupils
  • An exciting and extensive commitment to professional development
  • A school with its community at heart
  • An exciting programme of staff ‘well-being’ activities, from football to surfing!

This is an exceptional opportunity to make a difference within a positive and exciting environment. If you share our community’s ethos of progression, diversity and dynamism then we would be delighted to hear from you.
