Head's Welcome

Head of College Welcome

Welcome to Dawlish College.

It continues to be an absolute privilege to be the Headteacher at Dawlish College – the staff and students are second to none and take all of life’s challenges in their stride. Despite current uncertainties as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, we continue to hold onto our core purpose in all that we do. Behind all of the decisions taken and measures put in place sits the balance between keeping staff and students safe whilst also providing them with a varied and exciting school experience.

Dawlish College is a vibrant and exciting place to be, where we have the highest expectations of staff and students alike and seek to provide challenge at every available opportunity. As a small school, we have a very proud record of holistic support, care and individual attention: the happiness and well-being of our students is of paramount importance and is a vital foundation for their growth and development. Our college has an atmosphere of creativity and positivity that is generated by the provision of excellent opportunities for every individual thereby maximising the outcomes and improving the life chances of the young people in our care.

As a parent myself, I understand that you want your child to be inspired, supported and challenged to be the best version of themselves within an environment that knows them and values them as an individual. Thank you for entrusting me with the care and education of your child, present or future, and I look forward to unlocking their ambitions as I get to know them and work closely with you.

Inclusion Co-ordinator Vacancy

Inclusion Co-ordinator
Dawlish College
Fixed Term until 31st August 2022

Dawlish College is a vibrant and exciting place to be. As a relatively small school we have the luxury of knowing every young person as an individual whilst also being able to offer every opportunity. Working collaboratively, having fun and enjoying what we do is at the heart of what it means to work with us and we believe that this is why students thrive, our outcomes are strong and we are growing year on year.

Dawlish College is part of Estuaries Multi Academy Trust. At Estuaries Multi Academy Trust, we have exceptional expectations of our students and staff and we welcome applicants who share our commitment to place student learning at the centre of everything we do. Our induction programme is excellent, and all staff are involved in an innovative CPD programme. Estuaries Trust is an inspiring place to work, with staff who are dedicated to increasing opportunities, maximising outcomes and improving the life chances of all pupils and families that we serve, and to nurture, develop and grow the talent of staff.

All Estuaries Trust schools form a wider family with a vision of inspiring excellence through collaboration.

We are seeking to appoint an inclusion Co-ordinator to start as soon as possible. We are looking for someone who is an effective communicator with the ability to work both alone and as part of a team and remain calm and consistent under pressure. The ability to be both pro-active and reactive to ever changing situations is vital. As Inclusion Co-ordinator you will be responsible for student access to our timetabled inclusion room - every day is guaranteed to be different!

As Inclusion Co-ordinator, you will support some of our most vulnerable students by encouraging and engaging them with their learning. You will need to be consistent and firm in your approach to working with these students, in line with the college expectations and policies for behaviour and attendance. You will work closely with, amongst others, school refusers, children in care, those at risk of exclusion and those suffering with medical issues or poor mental health to ensure they are accessing a full and broad curriculum, developing resilience and the skills and confidence to remain in mainstream education.

Come and join the pastoral team in our thriving college community where ambition is unlocked. Please see the job description and person specification for further details regarding this post.
