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 220 pupils on roll over these 3 sites. This role will be based at the Barrow Hill site which caters for primary aged children.

We are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic individual to support the team and work to ensure that the lunchtime provision is effective and can allow the site to continue to function. Lunches are out- sourced to an external catering company and we have arrangements to collect from the neighbouring school. This midday post is a new role that is now required to support the staffing team. There may be 15-20 pupils on site and they have lunch on a rota basis currently. Pupils may have varying behavioural and educational needs including ASD, ADHD, ODD and social, emotional, and mental health needs. Duties will include collection of the lunches, serving to pupils, distribution over the site, supervision of pupils over lunch and cleaning away afterwards so that lessons can continue swiftly. Staff will also be working with pupils and so this role is to contribute to the supervision required. We require support with the organisation and clearing away of breakfast, and of lunch distribution. This post is available initially on a temporary basis, however this may lead to a permanent position.

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.
