Inspire their remarkable with us

Barton Hill Academy, based in Torquay, Devon, opened September 2012 and is sponsored by Academies Enterprise Trust (AET).  The Academy currently has 660 pupils on roll aged 3-11.  We aim for every child to have a happy and active primary education in an environment that is caring and supporting. We aim to provide a stimulating and structured environment in which every child will be encouraged to reach their full potential.

We are looking for a part time School Counsellor to join our hard working and successful team.  The role is primarily to provide one to one counselling to pupils, to maintain appropriate records and liaise regularly with the Academy Principal, SLT, SENCO and other professionals as necessary.

Some of your duties will include:

  • To provide an independent and confidential counselling service to pupils, through individual sessions, responding to their personal, social, emotional or educational concerns;
  • To promote a caring and supportive environment where such concerns may be explored, thereby promoting the mental and emotional health at Barton Hill Academy
  • To maintain confidentiality (except in those circumstances, in line with Barton Hill Academy/AET practice, where this should be breached);
  • To uphold good practice as described by the AET relevant policies
  • To make referrals, where appropriate and with the pupil's consent, to other agencies;
  • To liaise, where appropriate and with the pupil's consent, with members of staff;

We passionately believe that every child can discover their own remarkable life. It's what motivates us around here. We know this vision requires something extra. Which is why at AET, you'll find more. More opportunities, so you can forge your own path. More care and support, so you can prioritise what matters most. More purpose, for you and for the children we're inspiring. 

We offer:

  • More training and development, so you can get better at what you do - Varied and stretching continuous professional development opportunities.
  • More support for you and your loved ones - A health cash plan, employee loans and savings scheme, discounted gym membership and employee assistance programme.
  • More technology so you can make more impact - G Suite for Education embedded throughout. Collaborative cloud technology gives you access to the latest tools, when and where it suits you. More tech enabled classrooms mean less time spent on admin and more time teaching.
  • More reward - A generous and flexible Local Government Pension scheme for support staff.
  • More possibilities - To inspire children to find their remarkable. 

Closing date:  Monday 19 August 2019
