We are looking to appoint a Home School Support Worker (including Safeguarding Officer) who will work with children and families who may be experiencing a range of challenges. This person will support and strengthen our already very positive links with parents and provide assistance to families during particularly difficult times.

Previous work experience related to health, child protection, social services, mentoring, counselling, and or/working within parenting programmes would clearly be beneficial. The successful candidate will also need to be an enthusiastic, flexible, confident individual with excellent interpersonal and behaviour management skills.

Access to your own transport is essential, as is Business Driving Insurance.

The Mawney Foundation School is a proactive, supportive, well-resourced primary school, with high expectations of all members of staff and pupils.

You will also join us at a very exciting time. We are currently undergoing a complete rebuild and we are due to move into our new state of the art building in November 2017, when we will also increase to 3 form entry.

The school has also been graded as ‘Good’ in our last 2 Ofsted inspections (most recently in May 2016).

This post is exempt from the provision of the rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974, and the successful applicant will be expected to undertake an enhanced disclosure.
