Attendance Manager

Required from October 2019

Salary Pay Band KR7 -  £22,182 – £25,112  

Hours – 37 hours per week for 40 weeks per year

The Abbey School is looking to appoint a full time Attendance Manager. The successful candidate will be required to build up positive relationships with students and parents, ensuring any absence is addressed quickly and all records are accurate.

Previous experience of working with secondary school students would be an advantage but is not essential. Candidates should possess good interpersonal skills, balancing a calm manner, high expectations and genuine care for students. 

The post will involve carrying out all administrative tasks associated with the recording, management and monitoring of attendance. Through the monitoring of the data, you will support in the implementation of a range of strategies with key stakeholders, and be responsible for helping to raise attendance within the school. On a daily basis, you will be in contact with students, various members of staff, parents and external agencies.

This is a busy and fast-paced role so we would like to hear from candidates who are keen to be part of our collaborative and supportive team, which is forward-thinking and focused on doing the very best for each and every student.

The Abbey School is a wide ability 11-19 Academy of 1,120 students, with over 180 students in the sixth form. We are also an IB world school and offer the IBCP (International Baccalaureate Careers Programme). We are currently oversubscribed in year 7 and have a very positive team with high staff morale. 

The school is situated on the rural outskirts of a small market town.  We aim to provide the highest quality value-added education and excellent pastoral care for all students to ensure they feel secure and valued.

Further details and an application form can be obtained from the HR Manager, Vanessa Bolton, by telephone or email:

Closing Date: 23 September 2019

Interview Date: W/C 30 September 2019

The Abbey School is committed to safeguarding and the well-being of students and expects all staff to share this commitment.  This post is subject to an enhanced Disclosure & Barring Service check.
