The successful candidate will provide a complementary service to the present school staff with a specific remit to liaise directly with families and individual children who require assistance in overcoming barriers to learning, addressing poor attendance and in supporting those who are experiencing multiple disadvantages.

Prendergast Primary School is part of Prendergast Ladywell School, an all-through school from EYFS to Year 11. The primary phase benefits from a purpose built primary building, as well as a stunning outdoor space which includes specifically designed play areas for Reception, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2, as well as the school's own Nature Reserve. The school is fortunate to be one of the only primary schools in Lewisham to have its own Teaching Kitchen classroom.
Being part of a successful Federation of Schools, located in easy travelling distance of each other, enables the schools to support each other and share best practice and resources. It also enables the Federation to offer staff the opportunity to develop their career as we are committed to developing and promoting from within wherever possible.
We offer a comprehensive and supportive induction programme for all new staff. You will also have access to a rich and varied CPD programme within the school and across the Federation.
We are dedicated to creating a work environment that our colleagues can enjoy, our students can benefit from, and where work complements life. For this reason, we encourage everyone to discuss with us their flexible working requirements during the recruitment process so that we can find the best working solution for them and their role.
