Job Description

Campus Supervisor - PKC07967  (Fixed Term until 4 November 2022)
£18,632 - £20,643 (33.5 Hours per week)
Blairgowrie Community Campus

An opportunity has arisen for an enthusiastic and driven individual to join our staff team as cover for a secondment.

As Campus Supervisor, you will lead the business & administrative  support for all school, campus & community related aspects, both during and after the school day, ensuring an ongoing quality of provision at Blairgowrie Community Campus (BCC). You will be line managed by the Head Teacher / Campus Leader.

BCC is an extremely busy, fast-paced environment. It is a unique dual-school campus consisting of one of PKC’s largest non-denominational primary schools, Newhill PS, a separate denominational primary school, St Stephen’s RCPS and an Early Learning and Childcare Centre, Newhill Nursery.  BCC is the largest primary campus within our council. In addition, throughout the school day, the campus is used as a PKC venue for meetings and out with school hours, the campus is open to the public for a wide range of activities and events.

Both schools at Blairgowrie Community Campus are overseen by separate Head Teachers with their own Vision, Values and Aims. The support provided is tailored specifically, consisting at times of separate procedures, systems and protocols that meet the expectations and requirements of the children and families within each school community, allowing them to retain their own unique, individual identity.

Blairgowrie is a town with an inherent community focus. There are several locally run groups and activities aimed at bringing the children and families together, many of which take place at Blairgowrie Community Campus out with school hours.

Due to its location, Blairgowrie is a popular commuter town, particularly for residents who work in Perth or Dundee. Due to this, there has been significant expansion to the Blairgowrie area, resulting in an increase in residential properties. The pupil roll at BCC is large, with over 600 pupils currently and is continuing to grow in line with the increasing demand for property in the area.
