All Saints is a highly successful, oversubscribed, 11-18 Catholic Voluntary Academy within the St Clare CMAT.  At the last OFSTED inspection in October 2023 the school remained Good.  As a wholly inclusive school community we share a clear and ambitious vision for high quality education for all.  Staff at all career stages are supported to access innovative and research led CPD and there is a culture of continuous development.

The Governors wish to appoint a skilled and suitably experienced professional to work as part of the school’s Inclusion Team.  This is a role which supports and supervises students who may have difficulties fully engaging with their learning resulting in removal from lesson to our Seclusion room, ‘Damascus’.  The Damascus and On Call Lead will support students to reflect on their behaviours and explore with them strategies to re-engage positively in classroom learning whilst maintaining the highest standards and expectations of behaviour whilst in the Damascus room.  It will be the responsibility of the Damascus and On Call Lead to manage the whole learning environment ensuring it is a safe, calm, and productive space, fully resourced so that all students are engaged in relevant curriculum materials.

The Damascus and On Call lead will also oversee the On Call system ensuring there are effective channels of communication which result in a swift response to requests for assistance from classroom teachers.  Continual monitoring, evaluation and review of the management of the Damascus room will be an integral part of this role ensuring that systems, processes and practice are regularly refined in order to ensure highly effective provision with tangible outcomes for those students struggling to engage positively in the classroom.  This role will require a proactive, resilient and relational approach to supporting young people.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare and safety of children and vulnerable adults and expect all staff to share this commitment.  All successful candidates will be required to complete an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service Check.

We value our diverse workforce and aim to work together to make the most of our differences.  We welcome applications from everyone.  Under the Disability Confident Scheme, disabled applicants, who meet the essential criteria of this job, are guaranteed an interview.

A Catholic Education Service application form, supplementary forms and further details are available on the school website:  Please return your application form, consent to obtain references form and recruitment monitoring form (optional) to Jo Thorpe, PA to the Headteacher, by email to or by post to the school address.  Applications on any other form and CVs will not be considered.
