We are seeking to appoint an Attendance Administrator whose role is to monitor and promote excellent student attendance and punctuality.

This role is wide-ranging and will involve monitoring absence emails/answerphone messages, as well as making phone calls and sending texts to follow up on student absence. You will update recording systems and complete attendance paperwork. You will be student-focused each morning when you greet students arriving late to school. You will also work directly with pastoral staff and other professionals to identify next steps to improve student attendance. Full training is provided.

You will need to have excellent time management, good problem-solving skills, and be efficient in managing systems so that staff can rely on your data being accurate. You will be able to respond efficiently to routine and be flexible to deal with ad hoc requests. You will be committed to teamwork and also able to use your initiative, working independently but knowing when to seek advice. This role will enable you to utilise your organisational, problem solving and communication skills. You may already have experience of working in education or schools or would like to move into this sector. The ability to speak a community language in addition to English is warmly welcomed.

Orchard is a forward-thinking school, with friendly staff and wonderful young people. Your work will make an impact on students’ experience of school, and will support students to achieve better, through focusing on attendance and punctuality every day.

We are a good school, building further success on the core ORCHARD values of being: Open-minded, Respectful, Creative and Curious, Healthy, Ambitious, Responsible and Determined.

- a strong commitment to your professional development
- award-winning staff wellbeing
