We're looking for a robust and switched-on administrator. First and foremost, this role includes responsibility for the day-to-day administration of the school, being the first point of contact for visitors and families and ensuring the safety and security of the reception area at the front of our secure special school setting. The polite, efficient and timely answering of phonecalls, emails and welcoming of visitors is of exceptional importance.
The role also includes, amongst many other things, overseeing efficient starts and endings to the school day, writing letters, filtering communication, managing files, managing pupils’ medication and data input & analysis.
Overall, it is predominantly about ensuring there is a generally smooth and seamless operation of the site’s reception and administration. It is imperative that the member of staff is comfortable with, and interested in, working in an environment for children who have severely challenging behaviour.
