Further details about the role

Beormund Primary is a specialist special needs setting for children with social, emotional and mental health needs (SEMH). No two days are ever the same here at Beormund.

We are a school filled with bright, articulate, funny children whose needs could not be met in a mainstream setting. Many have experienced a number of exclusions from school which can contribute to low self-esteem, self-confidence and a sense of rejection. All of our children have an Education and Health Care Plan (EHCP) highlighting their range of needs (medical, social, emotional and/or academic) so learning has to be personalised in order for our children to make progress.

As Admin Officer your role is front facing and your day will be varied including seeing children in and out of school, answering telephone calls from parents/carers/stakeholders, updating the school databases, booking trips, administering first aid, arranging packed lunches and much much more. The role is diverse and unpredictable which requires a reliable, organised and efficient staff member.

Our organisation is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults. We expect all staff, volunteers and trustees to share this commitment.

Our recruitment process follows the keeping children safe in education guidance.

Offers of employment may be subject to the following checks (where relevant):

You must tell us about any unspent conviction, cautions, reprimands or warnings under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exceptions) Order 1975.
