Crossing Patrol

 

We need to find a new person to ensure children can continue to cross the road safely on their way to and from school. This person will be employed by Wiltshire Council. The patroller will be paid £9.18 per hour (at grade B, point 2 on the Council’s payscale). They will work half an hour each morning and afternoon at the start and end of the school day, for 38 weeks and be paid for 43.51 weeks per year this would equate to £1997 per annum. The Council would be prepared to accept separate applications for morning and afternoon posts. The Council’s pension scheme is also open to this role. Full uniform and training is provided as well as regular site supervision and additional ad-hoc training as required. All patrollers are required to attend annual refresher training in person and undertake basic safeguarding training which can be conducted online. A full DBS will need to be completed every three years. Ideally the patroller will have some links with the school as they will play an important part in the school day for many children and be seen as part of the community. Anyone interested in this work should contact the Mrs Laing in the school office 01225 752678 initially, but you can also contact the Crossing Patrol Manager at Wiltshire Council on 01225 713580 for further information and advice about the role. A standard application form, medical questionnaire and full DBS will need to be completed for the successful applicant.
