Esteem North Academy is an AP academy for permanently excluded pupils or those at risk of exclusion. We currently have 3 sites in the north of Derbyshire and have around 315 pupils on roll over these 3 sites. This role will be based at the High Peak site which caters for both secondary and primary aged children.

We are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic individual to support the team and work to ensure that the breakfast and lunchtime provision is effective and can allow the site to continue to function. Lunches may be out- sourced to an external catering company and so there may be little in terms of preparation. There is no catering kitchen on site. This role may involve organising the ordering of lunches, serving of food and drink and also learning support in class where required, particularly in food lessons. Duties will also include supervision of pupils over lunch, cleaning away afterwards so that lessons can continue swiftly and support for the GCSE food classes. This midday post is a new role that is now required to support the staffing team due to increased pupil numbers. There may be approx. 45 pupils on site. Pupils may have varying behavioural and educational needs including ASD, ADHD, ODD and social, emotional, and mental health needs. We require support with the organisation and clearing away of breakfast, and of lunch distribution.

Reporting daily to the Site Lead, the ideal candidate will be experienced in food hygiene, motivated and a caring individual who has a passion for supporting children and working as part of a small team. The School Business Manager will line manage this post.

Benefits include: LGPS Pension Scheme and Westfield Health membership
