We are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic, flexible Parental Engagement Champion to join our Raising Standards team and work with parents and students to help remove barriers to learning and encourage positive engagement with school. The successful candidate will be an effective communicator, able to build rapport, work well and build trust with others. They will be self-motivated and passionate about doing whatever is required to support parents with ensuring their child attends school regularly, displays positive behaviours for learning and invests in home learning.
The Parental Engagement Champion will play a lead role in organising parents evenings, celebration evenings (admin time will be provided for this) and will support the Welfare Officer and Attendance Officer when necessary, with communicating with parents. This will include running the student Welfare office on Fridays when the Welfare Officer does not work. The successful candidate will be approachable, flexible, and able to deal with sensitive and confidential situations and will have the empathy required to connect with a wide range of people.
This is an exciting role that will make a real difference to many students and families living in the area. Appropriate training will be provided for the successful candidate.
Easthampstead Park is a vibrant school which prides itself on holding traditional values. Our school culture marries high academic expectations with excellent pastoral care and support. The concept of community is at the very heart of our vision; we believe in a three-way partnership between parents, teachers and students, and are proud of our setting and the local community. This is a very exciting time to join us. In recent years, we have made excellent progress, and at our last OFSTED inspection (June 2016), we were rated as ‘good’ in all areas.
“Since her appointment, the Headteacher has focused on making sure that all pupils feel safe, happy and confident so that they learn well. This did not happen overnight but it is now apparent in pupils’ much-improved behaviour and their positive response to the good teaching they receive.” (OFSTED, 2016).
We aspire to be rated ‘outstanding’, driven by a core belief that all of our students deserve nothing but the best possible teaching and support in order to be happy, healthy and successful. We aim to deliver the best quality teaching and learning in a school where staff and students have respect for, and pride in themselves, their school and their community.
