An exciting opportunity for a role across all the schools in the Slough and East Berkshire Multi Academy Trust (SEBMAT). We are looking for a Home School Link Worker (HSLWs) to work preventatively with families, children and the schools to provide early intervention, signposting, support and guidance, particularly in times of change and stress. The key objective of a HSLW is to overcome barriers to learning and attendance at school caused by home related issues.
The post will be based and managed within the Community Liaison Team at Slough and Eton.
The role is a key element in the preventative strategy - supporting parents/carers and a child before there is a need for a more intensive intervention from the statutory agencies.
The HSLW will not be the main source of support for cases where there is a need for a response from the statutory agencies. The HSLW will work with and support teachers and professionals in Children’s Service (social care and education), Health and other organisations to support the family /child. HSLWs must ensure that they refer cases to the appropriate staff within the school and to statutory agencies.
SEBMAT are committed to safeguarding the welfare of our students and staff and will conduct all necessary DBS checks as part of our recruitment process.
