The Whitefriars Heathland Federation is a multi-academy trust comprising of two outstanding schools, Heathland and Whitefriars School in Harrow. Heathland School is a 3-11 primary school judged to be outstanding by Ofsted 2010 and 2014. Whitefriars is an expanding through school catering for children from the age of 3 – 18 and received its outstanding judgement from Ofsted in May 2018.
Our Federation of two schools is underpinned by a Values based ethos that helps everyone work together cooperatively and with mutual respect. We promote harmony through dialogue and reflection. From the early years to the secondary stages of education we offer an active curriculum that is designed to engage and excite all our pupils. We take an individualised ‘next steps’ approach on the journey to master of English, reading and mathematics skills. Our pupils make rapid progress in an environment of care where expectations are high, values are positive, forgiveness is abundant and children are treasured. We absolutely believe that anyone can learn anything and the growth mind set underpins everything we do.
We are looking to recruit a Welfare Assistant to provide medical and welfare services for children (age 3 – 18) and staff and be the first point of contact for first aid and medical matters. Responsibilities will include caring for pupils who are unwell and liaising with their parents; maintaining accurate and confidential records; monitoring tracking and reporting on medical information; and liaising with office staff to ensure Sims pupil data is up to date.
Additional paediatric First Aid training along with diabetic training would be useful. You will have excellent inter-personal and communication skills and up to date knowledge and understanding of the practices and procedures within education relating to the welfare and safety of pupils.
We reserve the right to interview prior to the closing date and thus early applications are encouraged.
The Heathland Whitefriars Federation is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people, and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. You will be subject to an Enhanced DBS check
