What skills and experience we're looking for

The role will involve contacting families regarding attendance, supporting parents and students and home visits so you will need to establish and maintain good, positive working relationships with all students, parents, colleagues and other professionals. Information relating to student attendance and punctuality is confidential; it is important that none of this information is disclosed to any unauthorised person and that is dealt with discreetly and with integrity.

Duties will include:

  • Receiving and recording daily student absence calls in an efficient and timely manner as safeguarding underpins all we do in our daily practice
  • Follow up student absences and lateness by telephone or other means on a daily basis with guidance from relevant colleagues as well as making appropriate referrals where necessary i.e. reporting welfare concerns to the Head of Year
  • Running attendance and behaviour reports from SIMS.net
  • Conduct home visits for identified students according to absence patterns
