At Poltair School, you will work in an exciting, fast-paced and highly motivated, yet supportive environment. We are committed to maintaining the highest standards for behaviour, engagement and academic outcomes. Poltair is a school steeped in history on an exponential journey of success, supported as part of Cornwall Education Learning Trust (CELT), a family of Cornish Primary and Secondary Schools, with a strategic vision to ‘learn together to help every child achieve more’. This is an exciting time to join our large, dynamic Trust, which is responsible for educating learners across four secondary schools, one junior school and nine primary schools. There are extensive opportunities to work collaboratively with experienced professionals and leaders across the Trust with unparalleled CPD and career development prospects for all.
We are looking to appoint an Attendance and Engagement Officer to ensure that Poltair School discharges its duties concerning attendance and the welfare of children. The appointed person will take a pro-active role in improving attendance levels for all students, with particular attention to vulnerable groups including Pupil Premium and SEND. You will also be responsible for maintaining accurate student records, and managing school admissions and enquiries from prospective parents. You will need to have excellent communication skills and the ability to build effective relationships with students, staff and parents/carers.
The successful candidate will work closely with the wider Pastoral Team, including Heads of Year, Pastoral Managers, Tutors, and external agencies to promote student and parental engagement and identify where there are barriers to attendance and learning.
