Family Liaison Officer

This is your chance to make a lasting, positive impact on the lives of families experiencing educational (and potentially other) difficulties. Supported by a brilliant and dedicated team, you’ll work closely with parents, young people, carers and the local authority to explore the circumstances and see how collaborative, effective, life-changing resolutions can be agreed and put into place. It will also be up to you to coordinate visits to see parents, where you’ll talk at length and work out strategies for coping with whatever life throws at them. Then you’ll draw on your broad knowledge of local resources to help direct them to all the additional support they might need. Not to mention organising and taking part in admission interviews in partnership with the Head Teacher and making sure full and detailed inductions are given.

You’ll definitely have SEN-experience, worked with families to help determine what’s best for them, and be driven by genuine empathy and understanding.

Abbeywood School are looking for someone with strong contacts within the local authority, including education, social services and healthcare professionals. And your experience of multi-agency work will have given you a deep understanding of legislation, policies and guidance around safeguarding and child protection. Not to mention the strongest team-working skills, matched only by your drive to progress in your career.

Closing date for applications is 31st August 2022.
