Brannel School is characterised by the positivity of our staff and the overwhelmingly happy and supportive atmosphere around the school. We aim to deliver the very best educational opportunities, nurture academic excellence, and foster ambition in every one of our students. The outcome of good pastoral care is a school full of students who feel safe, happy and looked after. As a Pastoral Support Mentor, you will support students to develop emotional and social maturity, individuality, initiative and confidence. You will be based in our Pastoral Support Team but will spend a significant amount of time working closely with individual students and staff across the whole school.  Part time requests will be considered.

You will be keen to contribute to a culture of support and mutual respect for both students and staff. You will have the ability to build effective professional relationships with young people and their families, parents or carers.
