‘Community Outreach’ Pastoral Leader

37 hours per week, term time conditions negotiable.

Grade 7 - £30,151 - £33,820 (FTE)

St. Gregory’s Catholic High School seeks to appoint a ‘Community Outreach’ Pastoral Leader to join our highly reputable and successful school community. 

This is a unique opportunity to take on an evolving and exciting role which will enable you to have a varied input into both the pastoral and personal development areas of our school.  You will take an active role in the personal development of children and you will support our ‘Family Support Co-ordinator‘.  St Gregory’s values the strong relationships we have with our families and the support we can offer them.

A key aspect of the personal development aspect of the role will be to support and organise pupil led campaigns in areas of social justice such as anti-bullying and anti-discrimination. These campaigns will not take place all year round but they will take place at key milestones of the academic year and will enable you to work with the wider community.  You will be someone who is innovative and able to devise your own ideas that the school will be open to.

In terms of the family support aspect of the role, you will also work in partnership with our designated person for Children in Need and Early Help offer within school, who has lead responsibility to report concerns to the DSL and External Agencies.

You will work in a cohesive and highly reputable pastoral team and alongside dedicated staff, parents and pupils who work together to ensure our motto of, ‘one family inspired to learn’ is lived every day.

It is desirable that you have a positive pastoral experience record in schools. You will be highly organised and self-motivated and you will be someone that has a true pastoral heart that inspires young people. You will be someone that exemplifies positivity and have an energetic, can-do approach to your professional life.

In January 2020, Ofsted’s inspection report, conducted under the new inspection framework, graded the school as ‘Good’ in every area and the school was graded as ‘Outstanding’ in our Section 48 Inspection of the Catholic Life provision of the school in February 2019. We encourage all applicants to read both reports and to review our school website too.

The opening paragraph from the Ofsted report reads: “There is a strong sense of community across the school which reflects the school vision. One pupil said “we are cared about as individuals, but because everyone cares, that makes us all one”.

We are now relishing the challenge of continuing our successful journey towards providing an outstanding whole school provision.

To get to know our school community, we welcome you to visit the school to talk about the role and we also encourage you to review our school website:
