We are recruiting a Family Support Worker to support the emotional and social wellbeing of our pupils. We are looking for someone who can build trusting relationships with both parents and pupils to help engage them with their education.  You will be part of a team that supports our most vulnerable pupils both in and out of the classroom.  You will work closely with teachers to oversee academic progress, monitor behaviour and attendance and help pupils with particular challenges that create barriers to their learning and wellbeing.
