Attendance Improvement Manager
Salary: Grade 7 – full time salary £30,151-£32,909 (actual FTE salary £25,442-£27,770)
Bedminster Down School is looking for an experienced and supportive person, who is able to set high expectations for young people and their families, to join our team as an Attendance Improvement Manager. You will primarily be responsible for devising and implementing strategies which make a significant positive impact on the attendance of individuals and large groups of students, whilst ensuring that all of our statutory responsibilities with regards to attendance and safeguarding young people are met. You will work closely with a Senior Leader with responsibility for attendance and you will manage a small attendance team who will support you in improving attendance within the school.
It is not just our teaching staff who help us to create exceptional results. Our support staff are vital to ensuring that our pupils achieve their full potential and become confident, resilient and compassionate people who can make a positive contribution to society. We believe that you should be supported too, with all the opportunities you need to develop your career and achieve your goals. You will have very regular contact with your SLT line manager and will shape the attendance improvement agenda with them. In your role you will meet students and their parents regularly, identifying barriers to attendance and ensuring that staff from across the school are doing their part to support students to attend consistently. You will look carefully at trends in attendance data and ensure that we are targeting our intervention and support where it is most needed.
The ideal candidate for this post will have experience of working with young people who are struggling to engage with education and of working with external agencies to support families. Most of all though, you will have a ‘can-do’ attitude and the ability to build strong and accountable relationships quickly.
If you want to play an instrumental role in helping some of our most vulnerable young people to flourish during their time in school then this is the job for you.
In return we offer:
- A competitive salary
- A full and varied training programme offering development for our staff
- An opportunity to work in a supportive team from whom you can learn, develop and grow
- Wider opportunities to be involved across the Futura Learning Partnership
- An energised and professional working environment
- Benefits include; pension scheme, discounted sports centre/gym membership, free wellbeing support & medical cover, free on-site parking and cycle to work scheme.
We are keen to ensure that you have as much information to proceed with your application as possible, so if you would like a conversation about either the academy or the position please contact Jon Van Eker (Assistant Principal).
