Schools this job is for


We wish to appoint an Attendance Officer to be responsible for supporting, monitoring and improving and maintaining pupil details, attendance and assessment data within SIMS throughout the school to agreed annual targets and meet statutory regulations and procedures.

The post will support the attendance policy through the administration of registration processes, following up and investigating absences, and working closely alongside staff in intervention work with students and parents/carers.

We are looking for a candidate with excellent communication and interpersonal skills and the ability to communicate with a range of audiences including other employees within the school, Governors, students and parents.  The ability to organise and prioritise work effectively in order to meet deadlines and to maintain high standards at all times is essential.

The ideal candidate will have previous experience and knowledge of using a schools’ information management system such as SIMS and digital communications systems. You will possess excellent keyboard and organisational skills; ideally with experience of using Microsoft Office and gmail.

You should be able to respond proactively to unexpected problems and situations, and produce accurate and up-to-date records and reports as required, while maintaining a standard of sensitivity and objectivity in dealing with confidential issues.

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.

In addition to attendance tasks you will also be required to undertake a range of office administration tasks to support the Officer Manager.

In return, we can offer you:

  • Pupils who are polite, conscientious and proud of their school.
  • A staff team who are supportive and collaborative.
  • A program of induction, training and professional development to support you in being successful in all aspects of the role.
  • A working environment where everyone is determined in achieving the best outcomes for our pupils. 

The working hours for this post are 8.30am to 11.30am (15 hours per week), Monday to Friday during term time.

Information about the federation

The 10:10 Primary Federation has been formed through the collaboration of Goudhurst and Kilndown and Benenden CE Primary Schools, both situated in small picturesque villages in the Weald of Kent.

Goudhurst & Kilndown Primary School which was graded Outstanding at our last Ofsted and SIAMS inspections; Benenden Primary was graded good in both their respective inspections.

The catchment areas are mixed, with children from a wide variety of backgrounds. Both our schools are very well equipped and our facilities are excellent.

We place high value on developing the ‘whole child’. Academically, we offer a broad and balanced curriculum, rich with outdoor learning opportunities; we have established Forest Schools in both schools which all children experience.

Children's wellbeing and mental health is of an equal high priority; the learning and pastoral support from within and outside of the schools fully support this.
