We are seeking to appoint a Home School Link Worker
to work with the Inclusion team with targeted families and students to improve
attendance and engagement and build links between the school and home.
This role is focussed on supporting students
and families who, for a variety of reasons struggle to access education fully.
We are looking for a person who will bring positivity, enthusiasm, empathy, and
tenacity to the role, with a focus on helping young people access education.
This will involve working with external agencies, our SEN team, the pastoral
team, and teachers in school.
This post would suit a candidate who genuinely
likes working with young people, helping, and supporting them to succeed and reducing
barriers to learning. Experience of working in a school environment would be an
advantage but is not essential.
This position is subject to a variable hours clause where the

This enables schools to manage the fluctuations in pupils’ needs that
can occur from one year to the next while offering a permanent contract.

This is an exciting time to join us in our
continued development. If you want to be part of a school with strong working
relationships at the heart of every interaction, a committed and caring staff,
and a culture of working to get the very best from every child, then we look
forward to meeting you.
