What skills and experience we're looking for

School is not easy for every child, and missing school can put children off learning, cause anxiety, and make school feel more challenging than it needs to be.

As the school’s Attendance & Welfare Officer, you will be responsible for working with families and colleagues alike to provide operational and administrative support to promote whole school attendance strategies.

Rudheath Senior Academy is looking to appoint an experienced person who can contribute to improving attendance levels and reduce persistent absence. We are looking for a candidate who can relate well to our families, children and staff, to help create a strong attendance culture. This person will be a key home liaison and work with families and children to support good attendance to school.

You must be competent with undertaking the administration of attendance data, maintaining constructive relationships with parents/carers when exchanging information and conducting home visits within the community. Regardless of how difficult school may be for some children, every child has a right to reach their true potential. With your support, they will overcome the challenges they face.

For our staff at Rudheath Senior Academy, we offer:

  • Flexible working arrangements.
  • Enrolment to the Medicash Proactive Health Plan to help with costs of everyday healthcare.

  • Positive recognition culture, seasonal staff events and weekly wellbeing breakfasts.
  • Free meals for staff who take part in the Rudheath family dining initiative.
