Furze Platt is a highly successful mixed comprehensive school serving the children of Maidenhead. At Furze Platt, 1400 students of all abilities develop the skills and qualities to enable them to excel in the future. We are a highly ambitious, high-achieving and fully inclusive school in which our students are challenged and supported to achieve excellence.

This is an exciting new role supporting our school pastoral team who are dedicated to the safety and wellbeing of all students. The successful applicant will be providing high quality administrative support to our pastoral and safeguarding teams and Heads of Houses, helping ensure all pastoral, behavioural and child protection interventions are managed safely and effectively. This requires effective management of a central database of vulnerable students ensuring data is stored securely and is readily accessible. Another important role is managing “callouts” which involves taking calls from staff requiring behaviour support and ensuring they are effectively logged, triaged, and passed on to the relevant members of staff on callout duty. Other responsibilities include facilitating the organisation of annual student injections, organising the running of year group photo sessions, inputting parent evening data and managing Free School Meal applications.

We are looking for someone who has excellent communication skills, attention to detail, understands the importance of confidentiality and who would embrace the acquisition of new skills and acquiring new information in relation to the education sector and student well-being. If you have experience of working in an administrative role and enjoy working in an environment where no two days are the same, we would love the opportunity to consider your application.

About Furze Platt Senior School

Furze Platt is a highly successful mixed comprehensive school serving the children of Maidenhead. At Furze Platt, 1500 students of all abilities develop the skills and qualities to enable them to excel in the future. We are a highly ambitious, high-achieving and fully inclusive school in which our students are challenged and supported to achieve excellence. We are well placed for access, with good transport links to and from London and surrounding counties. Our school is very well resourced and equipped with many new facilities benefiting students and staff. These include a state-of-the-art theatre, gym, fitness suite and new three-storey teaching block incorporating science laboratories and classrooms. We are proud of the fact that the local community is also able to use these facilities.

We want our students to enjoy the time they spend with us by providing an education which is broad, stimulating and rewarding. We also believe passionately in music, drama, the arts and sport and have a Dance studio, two Drama studios, a recording studio and practice rooms and an all-weather astro-turf to support these. We are proud of the range of extra-curricular opportunities we provide for students outside of the classroom including Duke of Edinburgh, ski and theatre trips, visits overseas to enhance language skills and historical knowledge and many others.

We offer a friendly and harmonious campus atmosphere, with fantastic line support and a Senior Leadership Team who genuinely want to see you succeed and develop. NQTs are allocated a mentor, a reduced timetable and the opportunity to attend training sessions run by specialists from within the school. Career opportunities allowing you to grow professionally within Furze Platt include working parties and coaching for experienced teachers and leadership training for aspiring and existing middle and senior leaders.

There are excellent on-site facilities including use of a fully equipped and well-maintained gym, a café serving hot food and freshly made snacks and staff rooms with plenty of working space, your own laptop, student laptops and interactive whiteboards. As well as access to an employee advice service providing information, helpful resources and other services, we are finding ways of maintaining our community spirit and staff involvement through socially distanced initiatives, current examples being our first on-line book club, and a Furze Platt fantasy football league. In addition, freshly brewed coffee is ready for you during break-time with the occasional treat to help you through the week!
