Children & Family Support Officer (HLTA) job summary

The Governors and Senior Leadership Team at The Deans Primary School are looking to appoint an exceptional individual to work as a Children & Family Support Officer and HLTA in our fantastic school. This combined role will be a key member of our Pastoral and Family support team, working with parents, carers and families to support children in their attendance and learning at school. They will also act as an excellent HLTA, primarily in our EYFS and Key Stage 1 teams, to support children in their learning from their very first days at our school, but may be required to cover absences throughout the school if needed.

We are a two form entry primary school with an ever expanding demographic. We pride ourselves on being inclusive and are an Inclusion Quality Mark Flagship School. We are looking for an individual who will champion this inclusion, and will work with pupils, parents and families of all kinds to ensure that no child is excluded from learning in any way, and every child has the very best opportunity to succeed.

We are very much a primary school, and we believe in primary education. We work as a team to get the best from each other and most importantly from the children. As a team, we hold each other to the highest standards, but we also have great fun learning with the children. We measure our success by the smiles and laughter that we see and hear around school, as well as by the excellent academic results the children achieve. As a member of our school you will be given the professional freedom to express yourself whilst being supported and developed personally as part of our ongoing commitment to lifelong learning for all. Equally, the character of a candidate is as important to us as their experience. If you’re willing to learn, we’re willing to support your professional growth.
