Family Support Worker & Learning Mentor


Fosse Way Academy is a large, popular, busy and successful school with wonderful pupils, a supportive Governing Body and a great team of people working for the benefit of the children.


We are seeking to employ a Family Support Worker and Learning Mentor in order to improve outcomes for our pupils.

At Fosse Way we want every child to succeed, no matter what barriers they face. The Family Support Worker and Learning Mentor will work alongside senior leaders and class-based staff to provide children and their families with the help needed to ensure they thrive. Previous experience in a similar role (or someone with a social care or inclusion background) is vital. We will provide a comprehensive transition, with on-going support and training. There is a strong sense of community at Fosse Way and we want someone who puts the needs of children at the forefront of what they do; ensuring that all pupils are happy, safe and ready to learn.
