We would like to appoint a Pastoral Support Officer working across all year groups from Year 7 to Year 11.  The role will involve supporting a team of Year Leaders both practically and administratively and will involve working with children and young people who find school and/or life challenging. The right person will uphold the school’s standards and expectations within the Behaviour and Attitude strand of school life.  The ideal candidate will be emotionally intelligent, have excellent interpersonal skills and be an effective communicator at all levels and particularly confident in addressing students. Above all you must be relentlessly passionate about the development of students and the removal of barriers to allow each individual to reach their full potential.  The successful candidate will be innovative and proactive with the ability to respond to day-to-day behaviour issues and to remain calm in challenging situations. The ability to forge excellent relationships whilst holding the line is essential.

We do have high expectations of staff and students, but we also expect them to be individuals who demonstrate a strong work ethic and kindness and decency at every level.  This is because we want all students to make really good progress and leave school with wonderful memories of their experiences.  We want our staff to enjoy their work and really see the value in what they do.  In return we seek every opportunity to develop staff.  The Hayfield School is a great place to work where all colleagues are supported and valued, parents are supportive and the pupils are so eager to achieve. We do have a track record of excellent outcomes but we are not resting on our laurels.  Indeed we are embracing a changing educational landscape.

The school is situated in Auckley near Robin Hood Airport.  It is a lovely part of Doncaster and really easy to get to and from.  Our staff come from as far away as North Leeds, Sheffield, Scunthorpe and Nottinghamshire.  It really is worth the journey.
