As a result of tailored and collaborative interventions, we know such students can thrive.

The ideal candidate will be skilled in using Microsoft Excel spreadsheets; be able to analyse patterns of attendance across the school and use data to support the pastoral team. This is a full time position on a 40 week contract.
