Required as soon as possible.

Springfield Infant School and Nursery are looking for a caring, dedicated person to assist in improving achievement by working in partnership with families, parents, carers and children in a school context to enable children to have full access to educational opportunities and overcome barriers to learning and participation.

Working directly with our families, sometimes in their own home, you will be their first point of contact for non-judgemental support and practical advice with regard to parenting, education, attendance, behaviour, health and finance.

You will have the skills and confidence to work on your own initiative and will be able to lead short, early interventions and groups, such as Triple P, VIG and Thrive to empower both children and families to get the most out of school and strive for excellence.

You will also have knowledge of, and relationships with, a variety of other external services and providers in order to signpost families for longer term support.

If you have a belief in the ability of all students to achieve and be successful, a proven record in supporting children and families and a vision of what first class family support looks like then we have an exciting opportunity for you.

Visits to the school are warmly welcomed but due to current circumstances you may prefer a friendly chat with one of our supportive senior leadership team. Please call 01473 741305 to arrange this.

An application pack can be downloaded from the related information section.

Completed applications should be returned via email to: admin@springinf.omat.org.uk
