School-Home Support Practitioner 

Parsloes Primary School, Barking and Dagenham, RM9 5RH

Two day per week post. Working four mornings per week, term time only.

School-Home Support is a dynamic charity with proven impact. For over 35 years it has been working with children and young people struggling to stay in school due to a wide range of complex family issues. We get children and young people back into school ready to learn, whatever it takes.

The post-holder will be based in a primary school focusing their support on improving attendance, punctuality and engagement in learning. The post-holder will work in close partnership with school staff to deliver a programme of casework and other activities to promote educational outcomes for disadvantaged children and families.  The post-holder will need to be persistent, resilient and tenacious along with having the experience of working with hard to engage parents.

This is an exciting opportunity for the successful candidate, who will have good experience of working effectively with social and emotional factors affecting a child’s capacity to learn, strong abilities in engaging children and their families, and a confident ability to form professional partnerships with children and their families.
