We are seeking a Pupil Welfare Officer to join the busy team at Desmond Anderson Primary Academy. We are a well-established primary school with 400 pupils, recently rated ‘Good’ by Ofsted (October 2019).
The successful candidate will be systematic and thorough, with a strong understanding of issues around safeguarding and child protection. The post will involve liaison with external agencies (MASH, Early Help, social workers etc.) and attendance at Child Protection conferences where necessary, so an understanding of the importance of confidentiality is vital. The Pupil Welfare Lead will also manage attendance, oversee behaviour management outside the classroom and be a learning mentor to some of our vulnerable children.
The Pupil Welfare Lead will report to and work with the Senior Leadership Team to ensure the safety and wellbeing of all our pupils.
The successful candidate will be required to undergo Designated Safeguarding Lead training.
The University of Brighton Academies Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. All appointments are subject to an enhanced DBS check.
