Family Support Coordinator
As a school we are extremely proud of our badge, you will see it everywhere around the school. We are proud because it sums everything that we believe in. The motto on the badge says ‘Ut Fili Lucis Fiatis’ and it means ‘to become children of the light’, and that is the reason we exist as a school. We believe that every young person who walks through our doors has enormous potential. Our staff work hard to help students to reach their best and become enlightened, or as our motto says, become children of the light.
Everyone at The Earls High School supports students to make as much academic progress as possible so that they are equipped for the next stage of their education or career. We believe that it is our duty to help them develop character too, so that they can communicate effectively, have the resilience to carry on when things get difficult, work effectively as member of a team and develop their leadership skills. We want students who leave us to be kind, compassionate and caring individuals; people who will support and help their neighbours and make a significant positive contribution to Halesowen or whatever community they choose to live in.
If we develop these three qualities in the young people who choose to come to our school, we can feel content that we have done our job well.
Following the expansion of the Pastoral team, the Governors wish to appoint to the newly created post of Family Support Coordinator to start 1st September 2022.

This role is a new role joining and supporting this team and reporting directly to the Senior Deputy Headteacher.
The role will work alongside families to promote the attendance, mental health and attainment of vulnerable children and young people, working in partnership with alternative provision providers to improve the quality of provision, transition and outcomes.
