Attendance Officer job summary

Attendance Officer,  Term Time Plus 5 Additional Days, Monday - Friday, 40 Hours Per Week

Emmanuel College have an exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic and highly motivated individual who believes they can make a significant impact by improving student attendance and punctuality.

The successful candidate will work closely with both our Student Welfare and Pastoral teams to proactively drive improvements in attendance for all students who are not already achieving 100%.  Through close working relationships with students and their carers you will monitor and improve attendance rates by identifying barriers to attendance and implementing strategies to address them.  Early intervention and support are a critical aspect to this work, as is working closely with one of our Student Welfare Officers to get school refusers attending school on a regular basis.

In this multifaceted position, you will be responsible for maintaining accurate attendance records, identifying and addressing patterns of absence, and collaborating with various stakeholders to create a supportive and inclusive school environment.  Your ability to communicate effectively, offer guidance and support, and analyse attendance data will be integral in helping our students achieve their full potential.

We are looking for a team member who:

  • is a people person;
  • effective listener;
  • can communicate effectively with students and families;
  • competent in dealing with parental queries and the handling of sensitive information;
  • be able to maintain an atmosphere of calm control in a pressurised situation.

We have high expectations for our students as they grow and develop and all our staff provide important role models to them in terms of positive attitude, work ethic and diligence.

Further information is available in the job description and person specification.  

Join us and in addition to working with committed and helpful colleagues, the Trust can offer access to the following benefits:

  • Defined benefit pension scheme
  • Employee Assistance Programme
  • Access to the Emmanuel Schools Benefits Hub
  • Free parking
  • Employee-centred and family friendly policies and practices that support you in and beyond the workplace
  • Enhanced sick pay, maternity leave and paternity leave (dependent on length of service)
  • Competitive holiday entitlement for support staff (minimum 25 days, plus bank 8 holidays per annum, pro-rated for part-time post-holders)
  • Cycle to work scheme
  • Funded eye tests and glasses for DSE users (subject to T/Cs)

Emmanuel College is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff to share this commitment.  Where the post is engaged in regulated activity, and/or an opportunity for contact with children the position will be subject to an enhanced DBS check. In addition, as part of the shortlisting process, and in accordance with statutory guidance, we may carry out an online search (for publicly available material) to help identify any incidents or issues that have happened which we may want to explore with shortlisted applicants at interview.

About Emmanuel College

School type
Independent school, ages 11 to 18
School size
1495 pupils enrolled
Age range
11 to 18

At Emmanuel College we have a reputation for academic excellence, yet we place a far higher premium upon character development.

The results our students achieve place Emmanuel firmly amongst a small handful of the best comprehensive schools in the nation, yet our student intake is carefully tailored to be representative of inner city Gateshead and Newcastle (two-thirds of our students come from “disadvantaged and highly disadvantaged” areas, and the average IQ is 100 with as many low-attaining as high-attaining students).

Our staff are dedicated professionals, yet most would describe what they do in terms of vocation rather than career.

We have a distinctive Christian ethos, yet we apply no faith test on intake. Parents choose Emmanuel for its orderly, calm, safe environment and emphasis upon respect for authority.

If you have a passion to make a difference in the lives of the young people of Gateshead and Newcastle, and demand the best from yourself as well as others, we would like to hear from you.
