To start as soon as possible, we require a School Wellbeing Officer to join us at James Calvert Spence College, supporting teachers and pupils in our community.

As a School Wellbeing Officer at JCSC, you will provide a complementary service to teachers and other staff, addressing and supporting the needs of students who require assistance in overcoming barriers to learning in order to achieve their full potential, or accessing the curriculum.

The successful candidate will work across our two sites with students aged 9 – 18 years old and be an integral player without our Pastoral Team. The role will be predominantly education based but also have a wider remit including working with families and the wider community to promote engagement and intervention at the earliest opportunity.

You will work with children whose behaviour and disaffection has significant impact upon their attainment and, in line with the school’s ethos of illuminate, navigate and shelter, help to improve pupil progress and achievement by helping to minimise barriers to learning and maximise pupil participation.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff to share this commitment.  An enhanced criminal records check from the Disclosure and Barring Service is required for all posts.
