Purpose of the job:
Goole Academy are looking to appoint a Lunchtime Supervisor to join our academy team in November 2020.
Goole Academy is a great place to work and all staff are committed to ‘Changing Lives’. Expectations are high and we have an aspirational mind set. We plan to ensure that all our students reach their full potential.
Here at Goole Academy we are on a journey of rapid improvement and are currently ranked as the 2nd highest performing school in East Riding and 3rd out of 55 similar schools nationally. Despite the recent improvements we are not ready to stop developing and improving. Our aim is to be ranked and recognised amongst the top schools in the North of England.
Your new school
With close to 1000 pupils aged between 11 and 16 housed in a mix of modern and traditional buildings, Goole is a busy and vibrant place with great access and an exciting future. There is significant development and investment on the horizon with the announcement of major multinational companies bringing significant funding to the area. One example of this is the arrival of a £200million Siemens Mobility project developing a brand new train manufacturing plant and supply chain rail village.
Your new role
In your new role you will actively supervise the pupils in the dining room, playground and throughout the academy premises during the lunchtime period.
If you feel you have the necessary skills and experience required for this position then we would very much like to hear from you.
Why join our academy?
Our staff are talented and enthusiastic and have all contributed to the academy’s success story. We have a staff rewards budget and socialise both as subject teams and as a whole staff. We also have access to a staff benefits scheme. At Goole, we value the continuous professional development of all our employees and recognise that our staff and students are most successful when they feel happy, valued, challenged and supported to achieve their very best.
This is a fantastic opportunity to join an outstanding team within a high-performing multi academy trust.
