Pupil Job Vacancies

As a way of developing children’s life skills linked to future employment and longer term aspirations we intend to advertise for and appoint children to specialty designed ‘jobs’ that they can undertake in school. Children will have the opportunity to experience the process of applying for a job and completing an application form, considering ‘pay’ and taking account of job descriptions and associated responsibilities.

If you or your child is interested, they will be asked to formally apply for a position and then, if appropriate, take part in an ‘interview’. Successful candidates will be invited take up their posts for a fixed period of time. Your child will receive payment in house-points.


As with any normal employment, children will be able to resign or, in turn, be released from their duties after serving an appropriate notice period. Whilst this is as close to a real life process as possible, at all times we will be sensitive to individual children’s needs. Guidance, support and encouragement will be given throughout.


Closing date for applications: Friday 10th July (application form available to download at the bottom of this page)

Interview dates: to be confirmed (interview questions will be provided beforehand)
