St Matthew's CE Primary School is looking to appoint a skilled and enthusiastic Family Support and Pastoral Worker who is passionate about reducing the barriers families and children may experience so that they are able to reach their full potential. At St Matthew’s we enable children to become aspirational citizens. Our curriculum is enhanced by our deeply Christian ethos, empowering children and enabling them to flourish. Worship is the heart of the school and our Christian values teach children to value themselves: they are courageous advocates for the Christian message.  

St Matthew’s is a two-form entry, Church of England primary school. Our core purpose is to improve outcomes and opportunities for the children in our community, and our vibrant and committed team work collaboratively, both within the school and across the Frays Academy Trust, to achieve this. We are forward focused and driven by current educational research to ensure the best possible outcomes for our pupils and support for their families. We value our staff, and demonstrate this through keeping well-being at the top of our agenda and through providing bespoke professional development. At St Matthew’s our Christian ethos and school values underpin the way in which we work, both with children and within the local community. Our most recent SIAMS inspection highlighted staff wellbeing as a strength, stating, “Staff morale is high despite recent changes. They feel well supported and valued by leaders. They are confident to express their views to school leaders and feel that feedback is very much a ‘two-way thing’. Being part of a multi-academy trust (MAT) provides them with helpful networking and staff wellbeing opportunities. Adults flourish and so do the pupils."

The successful candidate will:
  • Have high expectations and an unwavering belief in the potential of every child.
  • A desire to make a difference to the lives of children and families.
  • Be self-motivated and able to work from their own initiative.
  • Have experience of working with the relevant age groups.
  • Be committed to working in partnership with other staff members, parents/ carers and the community in an empathetic manner.
  • Be committed to their own professional development.
  • Be resilient with a good sense of humour.
What we can offer as a school:
  • A caring and friendly school environment.
  • Happy, well-behaved and motivated children who enjoy learning.
  • Excellent support from a dedicated group of staff.
  • Senior leaders who are supportive and committed to promoting staff wellbeing.
  • A range of excellent professional and personal development opportunities.
  • An employee assistance programme (EAP).
