We are seeking to appoint an outstanding Wellbeing Leader and Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead to join our team and contribute towards our continued success as Shireland Hall moves from strength to strength following our recent ‘Outstanding’ Ofsted judgement.
‘Pupils, parents and staff all say this is a great school. Inspectors agree. Shireland Hall Primary Academy continues to go from strength to strength.’ (Ofsted, May 2022).
The successful applicant will work in partnership with other pastoral leaders (DSL, SMHL, SENDCo, Attendance Lead etc.) to ensure that the wellbeing and welfare of our 600+ pupils aged 3-11, are monitored and supported. This will involve leading the dedicated team of experienced professionals that ensures effective child protection, safeguarding, family support and mentoring work is in place across the school.
At Shireland Hall we believe that preventative education is a critical tool for keeping children safe. The role will involve close collaboration with curriculum leaders and teachers to ensure that our children get a robust and appropriate education in understanding and managing their own safety and wellbeing.
