Wrap Around Care Co-ordinator with alternative options to suit the right candidate! job summary

The Ferrars Academy is a very popular, successful and well resourced academy with a well established and supportive leadership team; rated Good by Ofsted, we pride ourselves on delivering excellence in education, for our infant and nursery children. We are located in Luton on the Luton/Dunstable border, close to the M1, A5 link roads and the L&D hospital. Our 3 form entry school has children who are well behaved and learn in a vibrant and friendly environment.

Our Wrap Around Care provision is one of the essential services we offer our parent community. We are looking to recruit a highly committed and passionate person to join our team. As the co-ordinator, you will be responsible for organising, developing and leading the provision, ensuring that it provides high quality care for the children who attend.

You may also like to increase your earning potential by working some additional hours in the afternoon as a teaching assistant, before you start in the after school club. This again could be considered for the right person!

Please indicate on your application form if any of these options are something you would like to discuss with us if you come to interview.
