We are seeking to appoint an Attendance Officer to support the needs of the school office from January 2023.  

Hours:   Monday – Friday, 37 hours per week, how this is broken down over the week will be discussed at interview.

The Attendance Officer is a core member of the school office. This role is essential as it ensures that all school attendance is accounted for, that absence is recorded accurately and referred appropriately where and when necessary.
