To cover a maternity leave, we are looking for a reliable and committed administrative assistant to support the SENDCo (Special Educational Needs and Disability Co-ordinator) and DSL (Designated Safeguarding Lead) with daily administrative tasks relating to SEND and Safeguarding, and to act as Learning Support Technician. The role will start in February and is expected to last for one calendar year. It is a 5 days per week.
You should be well-organised, resourceful, practical and pro-active. Experience of working within a school environment would be an advantage, but not essential. The main duties are to provide a full administrative and secretarial service to the SEND and Safeguarding Departments, but you will also undertake some classroom-based support work with students and lead group interventions. Therefore, some experience as a Learning Support Technician would be an advantage. You will also work closely with issues regarding safeguarding and many of our most vulnerable students – so your application should demonstrate experience with dealing with sensitive information and data.
The successful candidate will be joining an exceptional, student focused team and therefore should be experienced in working in a professional manner as an initial point of contact for various enquiries from visitors, students, parents, external agencies and members of the public providing excellent customer care.
Becket Keys Church of England School has a motto of ‘Faith in Learning’. This means that we fully expect Learning to take place for all our students on a daily basis. We also bring Faith into Learning as part of our strong Christian Ethos. This does not mean that candidates have to be a Christian, but strong support for the values and ethos of a Christian school is essential.
Our vision is based upon clear and concise values: Respect, Responsibility and Forgiveness. We expect our staff to know students individually and to provide them the best possible educational experience.
We are keen to appoint a dedicated colleague who is eager to support our students to achieve in all aspects of their school life and who wants to be a key contributor to our school's success.
