Job description: Surrey County Council are recruiting for an inclusion Officer

As an Inclusion Officer you will be responsible for liaising between home, schools and other agencies, in order to improve the outcome for vulnerable learners.

Working as part of the Inclusion Service, you will support parents to fulfil their legal responsibility of ensuring that their children attend school. This will involve liaising with schools, parents and other relevant professionals.

You will be responsible for monitoring registers, verifying reasons for absence and identifying cases of non-attendance that require further investigation and may lead to legal proceedings. Working closely with school staff to assess these cases, you will use your own drive and initiative to develop strategies to return pupils to school and be prepared to challenge attitudes which may hinder this objective.

You will need an understanding of the statutory nature of school attendance and be responsible for negotiating school attendance agreements/plans, holding review meetings, producing reports, preparing court files and referring to other agencies. You will also advise schools on best practice to improve overall attendance.

Part of your role will include the investigation and recording of children missing education and those being removed from roll to be electively home educated.

You should have a good standard of education, excellent communication skills (verbal and written), relevant experience and evidence of recent career development. You will need to be comfortable and confident communicating with parents, children and other professionals.

You will be required to travel throughout the county visiting schools and homes, therefore you must possess a current driving licence and will need your own car insured for business purposes.
