•Working with an understanding and a good awareness of safeguarding and referring cases/situations to pastoral staff.
•Flexible to attend and minute occasional out of hour’s school meetings.
You will be IT literate with the ability to use Microsoft packages, to include Word, Excel and data bases. The ability to use SIMS (Schools Information Management System) would be advantageous, but training can be provided.
