We seek to appoint an effective and enthusiastic Safeguarding Officer to join our Safeguarding Team as soon as possible, at this highly successful and heavily over-subscribed school which is one of the highest performing 11-18 school in Staffordshire and in the top 10% of schools nationally for progress. We gained ‘Good’ in our 2018 Ofsted inspection and as part of the Local Authority’s quality assurance strategy, we have gained Category 1 status, the highest category of school performance, for four years running. We are a founding member of Primitas Learning Partnership, a new Multi Academy Trust which seeks to make a positive difference in the local community.
The Safeguarding Officer will work closely with the Designated Safeguarding Lead, and other Deputy Safeguarding Leads, to support the effective operation of the safeguarding service on a day to day basis in the school.
We welcome applications from adults with a passion for supporting children and young people in order to help them flourish and thrive. We offer a positive school culture, opportunities for further professional development and strong support from the Senior Leadership Team.
In return, we offer an incredibly positive working environment, passionately believing that our human resources are our most important and valuable resources. Therefore, our staff wellbeing strategy is at the heart of our ongoing improvement work, meaning that middle and senior leaders are committed to ensuring that all staff are happy, cared for, listened to and professionally equipped to fulfil their role to the highest possible standard. Furthermore, opportunities for career progression regularly arise, with the Academy having an excellent record of training and developing our staff from within.
