We are looking for a strong professional to join our experienced and incredibly supportive Attendance and Pastoral teams. We are looking for someone who believes (as we do!) that whatever your starting point in life, this should not dictate your future destination. We want someone who believes in social mobility. Someone so passionate about inclusivity that they can instill, within our pupils, an appreciation for attending and engaging to achieve, no matter what the setting!
This role would suit an enthusiastic professional who is looking to join a team of like-minded individuals to play
a key role in liaising with a range of stakeholders to ensure that pupils who
need it have access to the highest quality alternative and supportive
curriculums. The successful candidate will also monitor and intervene where appropriate to ensure
that attendance and engagement rates are high. A
core purpose of this role will be to ensure compliance and excellent practice
in relation to safeguarding and provision for pupils who are placed with
alternative providers. In addition, the successful candidate will also play a vital role within our attendance team in upholding our school
vision for attendance: ACT (Action – Challenge – Trends).
The successful candidate will have access to wider professional development through our CPD offer. As part of the Ormiston Academies Trust we can also offer wider benefits including networking opportunities, enhanced CPD and Employee Benefits Package.

Furthermore, our small and bespoke sixth form provision (WOA6) caters for students in Years 12 and 13 who have EHCPs.
We are an outward facing school and work closely with our local community – families, schools, businesses and community groups, with whom we share a common priority - our pupils are front, back and centre of every single decision we make at WOA.
At WOA, we believe that every child has the potential to achieve and we expect nothing but the best for each and every one of our students. Through our curriculum, we aim to provide an excellent education for all our students; an inclusive education which raises aspirations and brings out the best in all of them and prepares them for success in education and later life. Our curriculum is progressive and designed to provide children with the core knowledge they need for success along their learning journey.
We have a team of dedicated, specialist curriculum, SEND and student welfare staff who work together to ensure that the needs of each individual child can be met. Every single member of our team teaches at Wodensborough and this includes the Principal. We passionately believe that good teaching plays one of the most important roles in shaping and creating successful futures for our young people.
We believe that we all have an important part to play in raising standards. We truly believe that what we do in our classrooms changes lives. Why not come in, meet the team and join us on our journey?
