Furze Platt is a highly successful mixed comprehensive school serving the children of Maidenhead. At Furze Platt, 1400 students of all abilities develop the skills and qualities to enable them to excel in the future. We are a highly ambitious, high-achieving and fully inclusive school in which our students are challenged and supported to achieve excellence.
This is an exciting new role supporting our school pastoral team who are dedicated to the safety and wellbeing of all students. The successful applicant will be providing high quality administrative support to our pastoral and safeguarding teams and Heads of Houses, helping ensure all pastoral, behavioural and child protection interventions are managed safely and effectively. This requires effective management of a central database of vulnerable students ensuring data is stored securely and is readily accessible. Another important role is managing “callouts” which involves taking calls from staff requiring behaviour support and ensuring they are effectively logged, triaged, and passed on to the relevant members of staff on callout duty. Other responsibilities include facilitating the organisation of annual student injections, organising the running of year group photo sessions, inputting parent evening data and managing Free School Meal applications.
We are looking for someone who has excellent communication skills, attention to detail, understands the importance of confidentiality and who would embrace the acquisition of new skills and acquiring new information in relation to the education sector and student well-being. If you have experience of working in an administrative role and enjoy working in an environment where no two days are the same, we would love the opportunity to consider your application.
For further information about this role and to complete a Support Staff Application Form please refer to our school website. Application forms should be returned to Kiran Smith.
Only applications submitted on the school application form will be considered.
