We are seeking to appoint a dynamic, committed individual to promote the importance of student attendance within our school.

The role of Attendance Officer is vital to ensuring the success and safety of students at our school.

Our school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people, and we expect all our staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Appointment to this post would be subject to an enhanced DBS check and satisfactory medical and employment references.
