Further information for Support Staff

Our Vision: JCoSS is an academic, aspirational learning community, known and respected for our pioneering spirit, our humanity and our excellent outcomes.

Our Ethos: If you think you know what working in a Jewish school might be like, be ready to think again.  Our outward-looking and pluralist Jewish ethos combines an embrace of open-minded values with a deep love of the varied riches of Jewish tradition.  The staff and leadership team includes different faiths and none at all levels, and the school has a culture of purposeful good humour and humanity. We are a school like no other.

Our Results: We have a track record of excellent academic results and have consistently achieved a ALPS Grade 2 at KS5 and Grade 2/3 at KS4. Our 2018 figures were typical: over 40% of GCSE grades were at Grade 7 (A) or higher, and well over a quarter of our students achieved 8 Grade 7/A grades or better.  We have averaged +0.4 for Progress 8 in the three years to date, and have been an SSAT Top 10% school for achievement and progress for the last two years.  At A level (also typical) 67% of grades were at B grade or better, and 80% of vocational outcomes were at Distinction or better.  13 students have secured offers from Oxbridge this year, and we regularly send students to Medicine and Vet Science courses too; the great majority of students go to Russell Group or Top 25 Universities. 

Staff Benefits: We appoint on potential as well as experience, and we are committed to supporting staff development.  Several non-teaching colleagues have trained with us as teachers on Schools Direct and equivalent programmes, while others have benefited from financial support for MA or similar courses. Our admissions policy includes priority places for the children of all colleagues including support staff*. Our website details a huge number of wellbeing initiatives as we try to find something for everyone. https://jcoss.org/recruitment/staff-wellbeing-at-jcoss

* (Children, Jewish and non-Jewish, of JCoSS staff who have a permanent contract of employment and have completed two years of service on the last day of the summer term of the academic year prior to application)

Our Location & Community: The school is in beautiful new £48m buildings overlooking the Green Belt.  It is easily accessible from Northern, Piccadilly and Overground rail links and buses run past the entrance.  We attract students from eloquent and supportive communities across North London and Hertfordshire. We are planning an expansion in response to significant long term over-subscription.

 

JCoSS is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all its staff and volunteers to share this commitment. All posts are subject to satisfactory enhanced Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) clearance.

Shortlisted candidates will be notified by email and only shortlisted candidates may receive feedback.
