You will work closely with the post 16 Administrator, Carers Advisors, Inclusion Co-ordinators and the Senior Leadership Team on intervention strategies, and targeting students for intervention.
You will utilise the Academy’s systems in order to track and intervene with low attendees or students who are consistently late for lessons, post 16 and post 18 pathways and UCAS applications. Your role will have emphasis on intervention and student tracking throughout the day using the Academy’s “Praising Stars” system. You will attend case conferences and other meetings regarding students in your year alongside preparing referrals and reports for those students identified as needing intervention.
