We are currently seeking to appoint a Welfare Officer. The successful candidate will be part of the Raising Standards Team, and will be responsible for dealing with the well-being of students and liaising with parents and teachers regarding issues concerning students’ health.
The successful candidate will have responsibility for maintaining care plans for those students who take medication and for managing the storage of medicines. They will endeavour to try and remove barriers to learning, be these related to health or pastoral problems, so students are in lessons and learning effectively as much as possible.
In addition, the Welfare Officer will support students’ wider welfare and academic progress by assisting the Parental Engagement Champion in organising parents’ evenings and celebration evenings. They will also provide support for initiatives to promote good attendance, including supporting with first day calls, punctuality and responding to students and parental queries regarding behaviour for learning, for example about detentions. They will work closely with other staff to ensure the Student Welfare Office is staffed at all times during the school day.
Easthampstead Park Community School is a vibrant learning environment. Our school culture marries unswervingly high academic expectations with excellent pastoral care and support.

We have a friendly and supportive staff who enjoy working with a student body that fully reflects our community. There is a strong sense that the school is moving forward and we believe that this is an exciting time to join us.
