Carr Manor Community School (CMCS) is an ‘all through’ school at an exciting phase of expansion and development across both our primary and secondary phases. We are proud of our caring and inclusive reputation and have a strong team of professionals committed to developing and delivering a broad curriculum to children aged 4-19.

To further strengthen our Safeguarding team, we are looking to appoint a Safeguarding Officer. The ideal candidate will have the passion, resilience and tenacity needed to provide support to children and families experiencing challenging circumstances. The successful candidate will also be able to demonstrate the ability to understand and deal proactively and confidentially with complex needs, such as emotional well-being and mental health. Knowledge of Child Protection processes would be an advantage.

It is essential that the post holder shares our school ethos which is firmly rooted in a restorative approach and the following values: to ‘Know our children well’: to be ‘Partners in Learning’: to develop ‘Character for Learning’; to ‘Enjoy and Achieve’. We firmly believe that in order to move forwards we need to be prepared and able to ‘do things differently and do different things’. We work restoratively with pupils, families and with each other to maintain the ‘strong community culture with a very strong inclusive ethos’ that Ofsted recognised when they visited us in June 2018.

We significantly invest in the development and training of all colleagues who are equally happy to share their expertise, skills and knowledge across the organisation. If you are looking to be stretched and challenged within a positive and creative staff team and you have a genuine desire to make a positive difference to our children, please submit an application form, covering letter and CV to Mrs Christina Roylance, by noon on Monday 22nd July 2019 at  Alternatively please visit our website or telephone us on 0113 3368400 for further details about the role and where you will find our privacy notice which is applicable for all job applicants.

The school’s four key values permeate throughout the entire school and underpin everything the staff and pupils do” (Ofsted, June 2018)
