This post is a casual role pain on an hourly basis. Heybridge Co-operative Academy is a Pupil Referral Unit, part of the Keys Co-operative Academy Trust. Our Aternative Provision Academy educates vulnerable children from Key Stage 3 to Key Stage 4 referred from schools across theMid Essex areas. An opportunity has arisen for a Driver/Transport Co-ordinator to drive pupils to and from school each day using the Academy's minibus/car. Must hold a full UK driving licence. We expect this to be a split-shift role with up to 2 hours in the morning and 2 hours in the afternoon, due to the nature of the transport requirements at the school this role is casual and therefore required hours may change on a weekly basis.
Keys Co-operative Acadmy Trust is committed to safer recruitment practices and to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, and expects all employees and volunteers to share this commitment. All appointments are subject to an enhanced DBS check, medical clearance and satisfactory references.
The position is available to start immediately (once pre-employment checks have been completed).
Information about the School
Heybridge Co-operative Academy is an 11 – 16 school for 115 young people most of whom have found it difficult to be successful in a mainstream school.
We are very proud of the provision we offer. Students are taught in small groups and they study the core curriculum at both Key Stage 3 and 4. In addition to the core curriculum, we provide rich and varied extended curriculum opportunities ranging from music therapy, targeted literacy intervention, horse riding to vocational courses and work experience placements. Small classes benefit students and enable them to make good progress as staff can ensure that learning is tailored to individual student needs.
At Key Stage 3, in partnership with local schools, we focus on supporting young people to return to a mainstream school. At Key Stage 4, we focus on providing the opportunity for students to gain 5 GCSEs to ensure a successful transition to post 16 education or training. Many of the young people who attend Heybridge Co-operative Academy arrive here at a point of crisis or conflict in their lives. It is our aim to ensure that we help them to regain a sense of confidence and self-esteem which allows them to compete on equal terms with their peers, despite the disruption to their education caused by leaving mainstream school. We have an ongoing target that none of our Year 11 leavers are NEET (Not in education, employment or training) and we regularly maintain this excellent target.
