36 hours p/w, Term Time plus 1 week
Required April 2023
We would like to appoint a committed and motivated Safeguarding Officer to become a part of the safeguarding team. The successful applicant will promote the safeguarding and welfare of all children and young people attending The Lammas School, while ensuring that all school, borough and statutory procedures are followed at all times, in relation to any safeguarding concerns. They will be a point of contact and will be required to respond appropriately to any safeguarding concerns, deputise in the absence of the Safeguarding Lead, and monitor ongoing safeguarding concerns while working with parents/carers, pupils and any other external agencies. In addition, they will be required to maintain confidential records, initiate multi-agency referrals, lead safeguarding training and provide advice/guidance to staff.
Please look at our website and explore the Trust website as fully as you can (www.griffinschoolstrust.org). You will see evidence of the shared life of the schools in the Trust in events such as the Science Symposium, the Arts Festival, the Sports Festival and Founders Day.
The Trust really is a family of schools which work closely together within and across phases and geographical hubs. So in joining Lammas you do have good relationships with local authority schools and projects but you also have a strong working relationship with your peers in Nicholas Chamberlaine School in North Warwickshire as well as day to day involvement with our two GST neighbour primaries, Willow Brook and Riverley, both outstanding and one a shining example of what a Griffin Great School looks and feels like. It is that journey to Griffin Great that informs our development planning. Ofsted validates our progress within a defined national framework: it emphatically does not set our agenda.
To apply for this position please include a letter of application, full CV with the names and direct contact details of two referees and the completed Safer Recruitment form.
Completed applications should be addressed to Carla Kenny and sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
The deadline for application is Monday 20 March 2023 at 12noon.
The school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, and applicants must be willing to undergo child protection screening appropriate to the post including checks with past employers and the Disclosure and Barring Service.
