Job summary:
“Staff have high aspirations for all pupils’ success. Leaders are determined that no child will be left behind.”

We are looking to recruit Catering Assistants to join our new team of kitchen staff. We are looking for candidates who have the skills and experience of working in a busy kitchen, who have a passion for working with children and who have a positive approach to their work. The ideal candidate will be an energetic, enthusiastic and approachable professional who will have the ability to assist the catering manager in preparing balanced and wholesome meals for our students and staff.
School Visits: It is important that potential applicants are able to find out as much as possible about both our academy and the role as they consider making an application. We welcome visits and can be flexible around timings of the day to suit. We are committed to doing all we can to support those interested in researching more about what it is like to work in our proudly inclusive, ambitious academy as part of our ‘one team’. Pre-application visits are therefore very welcome. We can also arrange a phone call with our Headteacher or other suitable members of staff. To arrange such an informal discussion ahead of and around making an application, please email Jenny Linthwaite, HR Officer – email: [email protected]
“Leaders are considerate of staff’s workload and promote staff’s well-being.”
In return we can offer brilliant development from experienced leaders and one of the most supportive staff cultures that you could hope to be part of. We are family oriented and recognise a life outside of work whilst being determined to do everything we can as professionals in support of our students. Individual and academy team ambition go hand in hand. LEAD Trust support and career development are a given.
“Staff fully support leaders’ vision for the school’s continued improvement.”
A drive to continue the ongoing improvement trajectory of our academy is a given and this role will support our determination to continue building positive attitudes to learning by all students. Ambitious team players with a good sense of humour are welcome. Our team goes above and beyond to support each other and our students so it is critical that this aligns with the candidate’s own values and ethos. Applicants will be expected to be able to demonstrate a prior commitment to their own professional development and should be looking forward to ongoing development of their own practice and that of the academy team as part of our collaborative and supportive Trust offer.
In summary, we are looking for someone who will:
  • provide quality, balanced and wholesome meals to the academy community.
