The Role:

Your role will be to make a significant impact on raising levels of pupil attendance by implementing and developing the Academy’s attendance management systems. 

Non-attendance at school has a dramatic impact on student outcomes at the end of KS4.  Your role will be to work with a caseload of children and their parents to identify and overcome barriers to attendance, and ultimately to initiate court action through the appropriate structured procedure where necessary. 

With an assistant, you will monitor registers daily, make calls to parents, work closely with the pastoral team and support the work of a third party organisation who we have engaged to handle a caseload of our most serious persistent non-attenders.  You will report regularly on your progress in resolving non-attendance cases and increasing overall school attendance. 

The Candidate:

You will have experience of working with children and parents on school attendance.  You will be highly organised and systematic and will be able to manage a large caseload independently.  You will have excellent communication skills, including the ability to manage difficult conversations productively and de-escalate conflict.  You will be a good team player with a demonstrated track record of making a positive impact in a previous role.
