School Administrator job summary

We are seeking an enthusiastic and proficient School Administrator, who would be in sole charge of the office in our small school. The role would be for 25 hours per week, term time only, 8:30-13:30 each day. These times could be flexible if required, and could be discussed at interview. There are likely to be some overtime opportunities from time to time. This is a a term-time only role, with a commitment to work two out of our five INSET days each year - one in September and one in February.

The right candidate for this permanent role will be highly organised and very proficient with a range of IT systems, including the Microsoft Offices suite. We use a number of online platforms across the Trust for communication, finance and data handling and you will be able to quickly familiarise yourself with these and use them efficiently. You will also need to be a good communicator in person and on the phone, liaising with families and professionals and supporting the headteacher with a wide range of administrative tasks.

Working in a primary school can also offer a range of benefits, including opportunities (if you want them) to join children on outdoor learning trips or sporting activities. However, this is in no way a requirement of the role - just a chance to get out of the office now and then if you would like to.

The Trust also provides all employees with a wide-ranging set of benefits through the Employee Assistance Programme. At Pensford we also have benefits such as online medical appointments and free physiotherapy available through our insurer.

We warmly welcome visits to our school so you can see for yourself all we have to offer. Please contact the school office to arrange a convenient time.

Pensford School is a co-educational primary catering for children between the ages of 4 and 11 years. Currently we have 4 mixed age classes (Year R, Years 1 and 2, Years 3 and 4 and Years 5 and 6). It is situated 6 miles south of Bristol on the A37. Our period buildings have had extensive refurbishment over the past few years and provide attractive, contemporary learning spaces. Our grounds have been redesigned and developed to create a stimulating outdoor learning environment. In June 2019, we joined The Partnership Trust, which is a multi-academy Trust.

We enjoy close links with our local community including established collaborative partnerships with other schools in the locality through which we endeavour to deliver the best outcomes for all primary age children in the Chew Valley area. The collaboration supports working with a range of professionals and building skills as well as opportunities for all staff. The children in our communities are at the very heart of everything we do within the school and the cluster.

Our vision for Pensford Primary is to be a high achieving, vibrant learning community in which children are nurtured, motivated and have outstanding expectations for themselves and others. We believe that every member of our school community has a right to achieve their potential in an atmosphere which balances challenge with support. We aim to provide a climate for learning, which engages, inspires and motivates children.

We believe that strong and effective home-school partnerships are essential to the successful academic, social and emotional development of the children in our care. We work hard to ensure parents and carers are involved in our school at many different levels by holding curriculum workshops and encouraging parent helpers during the school day, being involved in the PSA (Pensford School Association) and on the governing body.

We have very high aspirations for all of the children and staff in our school. The entire school community works together to ensure that the children reach their full potential. Our goal is to develop life-long learning characteristics in children that encourage self-leadership skills, helping each child to feel successful as individuals, learners and critical thinkers.
