Following the retirement of a long-serving post holder, we seek to appoint an Attendance Officer to join a small team of outstanding administrators, commencing September 2022. The successful candidate will be joining a busy Attendance office with sole responsibility for managing the daily Sixth Form registration procedures (in excess of 400 students). The ability to demonstrate strong organisational and communication skills, along with a flexible approach and team-oriented outlook, is paramount. Previous experience of working in a school environment is desirable, though not essential.

This permanent post is term-time only and 30 hours per week.  You will be required to work Monday to Friday 8.30am-3pm with a 30 minute lunch break.  Your main responsibilities will be to monitor students’ attendance and punctuality, ensuring prompt contact with parents to establish reasons for absence, and escalating concerns in accordance with school safeguarding protocols. Maintaining accurate records on SIMS, the school’s information management system, is also a critical part of the role and you should therefore be competent in the use of computer software and possess excellent attention to detail. Please refer to the job description for further details regarding responsibilities and ensure your skills and expertise are in alignment before submitting your application.
