We are transforming lives – do you want to join us?
The Queen Elizabeth Academy are seeking to appoint an Attendance Officer to join our well established, friendly administration team, taking a full and active part in the varied daily life of our forward thinking, modern academy. Improving attendance and reducing persistent absence post-Covid is a key area for improvement for the academy. The ideal candidate for this role will be energetic, enthusiastic, can build positive relationships with people and work closely with families and children.
The role involves working as part of our Attendance team at The Queen Elizabeth Academy, supporting in completing home visits, meeting and communicating with parents and students, recording and reporting attendance data, and developing strategies to improve the attendance and punctuality of students within the Academy. We are looking to recruit someone to work closely with the Assistant Principal to ensure that the relevant procedures are followed and external agencies involved as appropriate. The successful candidate will be an effective communicator, able to work well within a team but also to use their own initiative when required. Attendance data will be used as a performance indicator of the team the impact are having in improving attendance and reducing persistent absence at the Queen Elizabeth Academy.
The Queen Elizabeth Academy is an 11-16 mixed academy based in Atherstone with approximately 715 pupils on roll. Following our Ofsted inspection in June 2022, we retained our “Good” rating, a real testament to the hard work and dedication of our staff and students. Ofsted commented the pupils were “respectful of each other’s views and are exceptionally supportive. Pupils behave well. They are proud of their school and the improvements that have been made in recent years. Pupils enjoy school and know that leaders and staff have the highest expectations for them.” The Ofsted report is a fair reflection of the academy and we continue to develop as we push from Good to Great.
In November 2016, as part of the Priority School Building Programme, we moved into brand new premises that have given us access to fantastic new facilities, which really set us apart in the locality.
