We are looking to appoint a Family Liaison Officer (FLO) to provide support for our parents/carers to empower them to take an active role in their child's social, emotional and educational development.

Part of this role would include improving attendance rates, reduce pupil absence and engage with families to support them to ensure they fulfil their legal responsibilities. This role would also include supporting our Designated Safeguard Lead (DSL) in all Child Protection issues acting as the Deputy DSL.

As FLO you would need to support parents regarding a range of issues that could impact on their ability to parent effectively and encourage good relations and effective dialogue between parents and teachers about a child's progress. 

If you are that special person, then we would love to hear from you. In exchange you will be joining a very supportive team who values people and their continuing professional development. If you are interested in this post, please read through our job description and person specification and complete the application online.
