The Role

Our vision is simple - to ensure that all of our students achieve beyond expectations and flourish as confident learners with the highest aspirations, ready for the university or careers of their choice, and also ready for the world in which they will work and live. We are relentless in our pursuit of the very best for all our students.

Excellent attendance and inclusivity are essential aspects of personal and academic success. In order to support this we are looking for an Attendance and Inclusion Officer to join our pastoral support team. The role is 37 hours per week, term time only plus 10 days. It may be possible to accommodate some degree of flexibility in working hours, however the role requires a daily start time of no later than 8.00am. 

The primary purpose of the role is to support our students and their families in maintaining excellent attendance. Our new Attendance and inclusion Officer will use and develop effective systems to monitor attendance rates; identifying and implementing timely intervention strategies that ensure high levels of attendance and engagement. The role requires regular analysis of student attendance data in order to improve and maintain targets and will ensure efficient communication with key stakeholders and academy staff. 

As a part of the pastoral team the successful candidate will work closely with the student manager and Head of Year team, supporting the Academy’s inclusion agenda. This will involve understanding the possible challenges students are facing and their personal barriers to success. The AIO will take a creative approach to seeing how we can work with students to overcome these barriers and will liaise with external agencies, enlisting their services to ensure students and their families are well supported.

What we offer:

• Competitive salary 

• Generous holiday entitlement

• Pension scheme

• Employee assistance programme

• Childcare vouchers and reduced gym membership

• Free on-site parking
