The Kenton Schools Academy Trust, formed in 2014, is a growing, passionate Trust in the North East of England. Our eyes are firmly fixed on providing the best education possible for young people in our city, our region and nationally. The Trust’s main objectives are encompassed in its vision statement, which is: Through the provision of high-quality inclusive education, the Trust will support and enable all our learners to believe in themselves, to succeed in life and aspire to be all that they can be.

The Trust currently incorporates two schools; Studio West - one of the most successful studio schools in the country and Kenton School – a vibrant and inclusive large secondary school, on the cusp of excellence.

Ensuring student attendance stays above national and regional benchmarks is a key priority for us and we are therefore looking to expand our current attendance team with a new additional role to support delivery of our attendance improvement strategy.

  • A proven track record undertaking pastoral work in a secondary school environment, ideally in attendance.

  • The ability to analyse and interpret data to inform practice.

  • The ability to produce and report on attendance data to the Attendance Manager, schools and trust leaders.

  • Excellent interpersonal skills with the ability to challenge robustly and professionally.

  • A determined approach with the creativity to develop and deliver new strategies and approaches to secure good attendance across all year groups.

In return we offer:

  • The opportunity to work with forward thinking management and staff working together to offer the best available chances for our students.

  • Staff benefits including salary sacrifice car leasing scheme, cycle to work and childcare voucher scheme.
