The Governors of Brightlingsea Primary School and Nursery seek to appoint an Inclusion Officer with ultimate responsibility for Safeguarding and pupil wellbeing across the school. The successful candidate will benefit from working directly with our SENCO (and her assistant), Attendance Officer, local delivery group, MTEP, and external agencies. Whilst safeguarding and working with vulnerable families is the main purpose of this job, the role also entails organising wider pastoral provision for children at our school. With a growing team of personnel, who support children's emotional needs, the Inclusion Officer will liaise with our creative playworkers, Thrive practitioners and LSAs.
Experience of working with vulnerable families, or in the social care sector is highly desirable, but not essential. If you have an up to date knowledge of Child Protection policies and practices, and enjoy working with families and support agencies, we will offer you:
- a full-time, non teaching, dedicated Inclusion team to work with
- extensive pastoral, mental health & support services (in-house and external)
- a happy community school
- supervision when needed
Please do come along and visit our very large, but very friendly school. We can't wait to meet the next member of the team!
Information about the School
In September 2018, Brightlingsea Infant School & Nursery and Brightlingsea Junior School became Brightlingsea Primary School and Nursery. We are a large Primary School, taking children from 2 to 11 years, with a three form entry and approximately 750 children on roll. This is an exciting time for our school and we are looking to further improve outcomes for our children and families. As a large school we are able to offer some exciting opportunities for staff: we recognise the importance of professional development and believe in investing in staff to help us to achieve our vision.
We are an inclusive school and strive to deliver a fully accessible social and academic curriculum. Our aim is for all pupils to achieve their full potential. We provide a welcoming, caring and supportive environment, which allows children to develop socially, emotionally and academically. All our staff play an important part in children's development. Parents are actively encouraged to take a vested interest in the school, so that together, school, parents and children can work together in partnership.
