The Reach Free School is looking to appoint a caring and supportive individual to be the Attendance and Welfare Officer. 

The Attendance and Welfare Officer is an integral role in the school and has two key areas of responsibility. The first is related to attendance, where you will support pupils in ensuring their attendance meets the school’s expectations. You will build relationships with pupils and their families and communicate with them in all matters relating to attendance. The second part of this role is relating to the welfare of pupils when they are in school and dealing with any medical matters that arise. This requires candidates to have experience of dealing with first aid in a busy environment. The role would suit a person with previous experience of working in a school or with young people. 

In return, we offer:

  • The freedom and flexibility to carry out their role in a positive working environment
  • The opportunity to gain and develop a broad set of skills
  • Competitive salaries, based on skills and experience 
  • A network of outstanding practitioners to collaborate with and learn from

The Reach Free School is a successful and growing secondary Free School, which opened in September 2013. The over-subscribed school is a popular choice for local families. In September 2018 the school moved into a brand new purpose built building right in the heart of the community that it serves.  

If the challenges of working to develop a local school appeal to you, then we would like to hear from you.

The Reach Free School is an 11 to 18 school in Rickmansworth, which serves pupils of all backgrounds and abilities. Opened in September 2013, the school was founded by a group of teachers and local parents in response to a significant demand for more secondary school places in the area.

All involved with the school have high aspirations for our pupils and high expectations of them. As such we expect all pupils to: commit their best efforts to all that they do; support each other to achieve their potential; work with their teachers to exceed their goals; demonstrate exemplary behaviour in all that they do; take pride in their school and its community within its walls and beyond; enjoy learning.

The Reach Free School plays an active role in the community, working with local businesses, supporting local events and providing a hub for local services. Pupils are very much involved in the school’s wider responsibilities, developing skills in leadership and decision making, communication and collaboration and independent, self led learning.

A sense of purpose and responsibility pervades lessons and activities at The Reach Free School and it is important that our pupils recognise their own responsibilities as members of the community. It is this that underpins The Reach Free School’s ethos; Achievement, Community, Enjoyment – ACE.
