Communications and Admin Officer (inc PA to Headteacher) - Greenmead Primary School
36 hours (Monday-Friday)
All year around (with annual leave agreed with Headteacher and majority to be taken in the school holidays)
We are looking for a Communication and Admin Officer to join our supportive, enthusiastic and committed team. You will be working under the direction of the Headteacher to support the overarching administrative functions and strategy of the whole school. Your role will be to undertake regular PA duties to the Headteacher, and Senior Leadership Team as directed by the Headteacher, with discretion and always maintaining confidentiality.
We require someone to lead on communications for the whole school, ensuring a quality assured, streamlined approach to internal and external communications. This will include newsletters and communications with families, collaborative working with key stakeholders, including on projects as directed by the Headteacher, and upholding the aims and values of the school throughout all communications with families and our community.
This creative and dynamic member of the School Team will be responsible for the branding and school image in line with the school’s strategy, including development of the school website, digital and social media profiles and promotion of school events. This will also include being responsible for an allocated budget and developing proposals. You will also be required to plan and implement a fundraising action plan for the whole school in order to raise the school’s profile within our community and generate income, delivering on our marketing and fundraising strategy. This will involve marketing and hiring the school’s spaces, resources and professionals (Outreach support and training), and creating links and partnerships with businesses and charities.
Another key part of the role will be co-ordinate EHCP reviews, including minute-taking of meetings and preparation and completion of high-quality documents related to these meetings.
A commitment to Greenmead pupils and their complex needs is essential, plus the ability to work as part of a team and be flexible and support other colleagues. Greenmead is an Outstanding (November 2021) primary school for pupils aged 2 – 11 years who have severe physical disabilities and associated communication and learning problems. Many of the pupils have additional medical needs.
You should be friendly and approachable as you’ll be liaising with parents, pupils, a multi-agency team and the wide community of local schools and businesses. You should have excellent communication skills (both verbal and written) and be able to problem solve and be solution focused.
You will receive training to support you in your role and to further develop your professional expertise.
