To commence as soon as possible
We require an individual who is passionate about inclusion and supporting students to make the right choices of behaviour to enable them to access all aspects of the curriculum. This is a fantastic opportunity for someone with a real interest in guiding those individuals who struggle to manage behaviour expectations and who are dedicated to ensuring that all children can access their future life chances, or for a teacher wanting to move into a more pastoral role. You should be creative, adaptable, and flexible in your approach but with an ability to ‘hold the line’ regarding the behaviour expectations of the Academy. You will be responsible for managing the Choices Room, ensuring that those children who have made the incorrect behaviour response have access to a curriculum that is aligned with the current schemes of work and provide emotional support to reintegrate them successfully back into classroom learning.
The right candidate will have knowledge of curriculum support and be able to draw from a range of pastoral intervention strategies. You will be expected to liaise with both the support team and teachers and be able to effectively explain the rationale of our behaviour expectations to parents.
In return we can offer high quality in-house coaching and mentoring; access to a wide range of professional development opportunities; regular opportunities to work with Initial Teacher Training providers; access to Swift Academies networks and professional development; access to Darlington networks; an exceptional curriculum; highly supportive and collaborative staff; amazing children. For further information or to discuss the post please contact Mrs A Sweeten (Head Teacher) on 01325 380815 or by e-mail to email@example.com

SWIFT (Success Will Inspire Future Triumphs) Academies gained approval to become a Multi-Academy Trust (MAT) on the 1st September 2017 following a successful application to the Secretary of State for Education to become a sponsor academy from the Governing Body of Hurworth School.
The aim of the Swift Academies is to initially build, strengthen and expand our Trust across the North of England, by incorporating Good and Outstanding Schools into our family of academies and subsequently acting as a sponsor for other Primary and Secondary Academies, aiming to help them improve their standards and performance.
The vision of SWIFT Academies Trust Board is that each child experiences excellence with care every day. The Trust is founded on deeply held principles that every child has the right to a first class education. In addition to the Trust Board we plan for each Academy to have its own Local Governing Body who will take a key role in driving forward achievement and progress within each Academy.
The overall purpose of the trust is to strengthen provision across all academies within it; the trust will do this by providing strategic leadership for all academies through its inclusive ethos and vision and providing strong governance and high quality teaching and learning to ensure students are ready to progress to the next stage of their education, employment or training.Visit School Website
