Norham High School is an improving, 11 – 16, mainstream secondary school serving part of the south east locality of North Shields with an Additionally Resourced Provision (ARP). The school has a new, dynamic leadership team who are making rapid and exciting changes across the school. Ofsted recognise that “new senior leaders have brought the school a renewed sense of purpose. Staff morale is strong and improving. This has been helped by leaders’ clarity and determination to succeed” (December, 2019). Norham recognises that its staff are its greatest asset and this is evident through our extensive CPD programme and through staff benefits and rewards.

Norham High School is fully pupil-centred and enables pupils to have a real voice in our current and future improvements through our pupil council and other pupil leadership opportunities. As a result, our pupils are polite, behaviour is calm and staff and pupil relationships are positive (Ofsted, December 2019).

You will join an enthusiastic, multi-disciplinary team who provide high quality and effective support for pupils with a range of additional educational needs in a department with strong leadership (Ofsted, December 2019). Our support ranges from pupils with language and communication difficulties, including pupils on the autistic spectrum, to pupils with social, emotional and mental health (SEMH) difficulties, learning difficulties or physical difficulties. You will have a keen interest in working with pupils with additional needs to achieve positive outcomes in this inclusive environment. Knowledge and understanding of behaviour management and how to use scaffolding and visual strategies in class to support pupils is essential.

The majority of your role will be to deliver and support pupils to access the curriculum within the Faculty of Language and Ethical Studies. You will also provide subject specific and literacy interventions to small groups and on a 1:1 basis. In addition, you will become the key worker for a number of pupils with additional needs. You will support them to access their academic curriculum and the wider school community. This will include developing effective working relationships with parents/carers and additional agencies, promoting a multi-agency approach to pupil support.

Applications for this permanent post are invited from people who are keen to join an organisation that is recognised for the high quality care and support it provides for its pupils and staff, its committed staff team and the drive to raise standards at all levels.
