Carr Manor Community School (CMCS) is an ‘all through’ school at an exciting phase of expansion and development across both our primary and secondary phases. We are proud of our caring and inclusive reputation and have a strong team of professionals committed to developing and delivering a broad curriculum to children aged 4-19.  More recently we have also welcomed the challenges and opportunities of providing leadership to other schools and we are looking forward to further developing this, and other partnerships, over the forthcoming months and years.

We are now looking to appoint an Administrator with Pupil Wellbeing Responsibilities who has the tenacity, skills and flexibility to work in a fast moving environment and enhance our busy support teams.

The successful candidate will have Maths and English GCSE, grade C (or equivalent) or above, strong IT skills, well developed organisational and communication skills and a basic understanding of child development and learning strategies. The ability to utilise the full range of Microsoft applications and have a good understanding of school systems, including SIMS and procedures would be preferable.  The postholder will be expected to undertake a wide range of duties including: maintenance of pupil wellbeing / medication administration systems; working on admissions/attendance support; pupil and visitor reception; minute taking; preparing complex correspondence and mailshots and other key documentation for parents/carers; assisting in the co-ordination and delivery of school projects; supporting the collation and preparation of data and other management information; and supporting the implementation of whole school strategies, our Coaching programme and House system, after school clubs, further and flexible learning and invigilation duties.

It is essential that the post holder shares our school ethos which is firmly rooted in a restorative approach and the following values: to ‘Know our children well’: to be ‘Partners in Learning’: to develop ‘Character for Learning’; to ‘Enjoy and Achieve’. We firmly believe that in order to move forwards we need to be prepared and able to ‘do things differently and do different things’. We work restoratively with pupils, families and with each other to maintain the ‘strong community culture with a very strong inclusive ethos’ that Ofsted recognised when they visited us in June 2018.

We significantly invest in the development and training of all colleagues who are equally happy to share their expertise, skills and knowledge across the organisation.

All successful applications will be subject to an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring check and satisfactory references. “The school’s four key values permeate throughout the entire school and underpin everything the staff and pupils do” (Ofsted, June 2018).
