Reliable, organised, an eye for detail, a great communicator and a people person, with a sense of humour … IS THIS YOU?

We are expanding our admin team and are looking for a total of 1.4 FTE administrators. The actual duties and the working hours of the two people appointed will be decided according to experience and skills. We need someone who is able to bring a strong focus on statutory requirements, with an excellent understanding of day-to-day school-based administration; we also need someone with a creative flair who can take responsibility for our social media, website, newsletters and marketing.

Park School is a small, independent primary school based on the values of human-scale education. At Park School, we believe that developing positive and mutually respectful relationships are essential to promoting the well-being of the children and supporting their learning. We all take the time needed to build positive and supportive relationships with the children and their families.

We are looking for a ‘people-person’ who shares our values and is enthusiastic about our ethos; someone who is able to provide a warm, friendly and caring welcome to Park School and to be ‘child-centred’ in how they interact and support children through the work they do in the school office. We need an organised person who understands that the work that happens in the school office makes a significant contribution to the well-being and learning of our children.

You will be part of a small team responsible for ensuring that the business and administration of the school is efficient and can enable the school to demonstrate compliance with statutory requirements; you will also support the teaching staff to maintain their focus on learning by support with essential administration. You will have a high degree of autonomy and be expected to be able to problem-solve, manage your own time well and take responsibility for key areas within the team undertaking a wide variety of administration work to ensure that the school runs smoothly and efficiently. Above all, you will be able to deal with the many distractions and unexpected events that happen every day in the school office with a sense of humour and calmness!
