Purpose of the job:
Goldthorpe Primary Academy are looking to appoint a Lunchtime Supervisor to join our academy team in October 2021.
Goldthorpe is a village within the Metropolitan Borough of Barnsley, in South Yorkshire. Historically within the West Riding of Yorkshire, in ancient times it was a small medieval farming village and is even recorded in the Domesday Book. In later times, Goldthorpe flourished as a coal mining community. Following the closure of the pits and the inevitable increase in levels of socio-economic deprivation that followed, Goldthorpe is now beginning to benefit from regeneration programmes and investment.
Your new academy
Goldthorpe Primary School lies at the heart of the local community. It was located on the previous site since 1903 which means we were there for 113 years! In the summer of 2016 we relocated to our new site and opened our doors in September 2016. There are currently 264 pupils on roll.
Our vision is to develop the holistic potential of all our pupils so they become successful, responsible, active members of society.
Goldthorpe Primary Academy is a highly ambitious and aspirational learning environment where we strive at all times to find even more ways of enhancing our work to provide every child with an outstanding start to their school life in an exciting centre of learning, characterised by high standards in literacy and numeracy, a rich, broad and balanced curriculum and a happy, safe and supportive environment. Our academy has a strong commitment to meeting the needs of children and their families and promotes strong relationships with the community.
Your new role
In this 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 teachers, support staff and volunteers share the passion to inspire and motivate children to achieve their full potential. We are, quite simply, very proud of Goldthorpe and the community it serves.
In addition to a full and thorough induction into the Delta systems and procedures, you will benefit from the support of Delta Academies Trust’s central finance team who will provide regular and on-going continuous professional development.
It is a new and exciting time for Goldthorpe as we have recently joined Delta Academies Trust.
