About the role
Inclusion Support Administrator and Attendance Officer - Oakwood Primary Academy - Starting September 2021
Oakwood Primary Academy is a two-form entry primary school in Eastbourne, for pupils aged 4-11. We currently have 350 pupils on roll. The majority of our pupils come from the local community – a community we are proud to serve. We are a school that is undergoing a transformation and is committed to raising standards for all our pupils. Our four values of ‘Knowledge, Equality, Determination and Achievement’ underpin everything that we do, belonging to every pupil. These help to create our vision for the school of ‘Being Better Every Day’.
We are seeking to appoint a competent administrator to provide support to the Assistant Headteacher for Inclusion and to oversee pupil attendance. Ideally, you will have previous experience of maintaining an attendance system and interrogating the school’s information management system. You will possess excellent keyboard and organisational skills; ideally with experience of using Word, Excel and Outlook. Previous experience of working within a school environment and a knowledge of data entry would be an advantage. This post will also involve working with pupils and their families, to support good attendance and therefore, excellent communication skills are essential.
We wish to recruit a candidate who has experience of working as part of a team but also someone who is able to take the initiative and be able to work independently at times. The role includes a daily responsibility for monitoring pupil attendance and includes investigating pupil absence in a timely manner. In supporting the school’s leadership team, you will work in partnership with class teachers as well as outside agencies to help achieve expected attendance targets. If you would like to join our team, in this varied and important role, please make contact with us at Oakwood Primary Academy, as detailed below.
