What skills and experience we're looking for

Key responsibilities include:

  • Ensuring that parent-school relationships are as strong as possible – enabling at risk pupils and their families to quickly receive all necessary support if required.
  • Working in partnership with the inclusion team and senior leaders to manage and keep records of complex and confidential case studies and procedures.
  • Supporting a clear and soundly based educational vision, ethos and direction that promote and support pupils’ learning and their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.
  • Acting as a point of contact for families in need of support; actively promoting support provided by the school and local agencies.
  • Facilitating family support sessions and other activities.
  • Providing support for vulnerable pupils at lunch time
