We are seeking to appoint a School Information System (SIMS) and Cover Manager from 24 August 2020. The successful candidate will join a new, rapidly growing academy. If you want to play a crucial part in the smooth operation of our academy, and so make a meaningful difference in the lives of young people, this role will provide the perfect opportunity for you.

The successful candidates will be part of a team of support staff working across both King’s Academy Oakwood (KAO) and our all-through academy-King’s Academy Binfield (KAB).

The SIMs and Cover Manager will share the academy's vision and the belief that all young people can achieve. Your attention to detail in all administration will support the smooth running of vitally important aspects of the academy. You will also be an excellent communicator who recognises the importance of working as part of a team. In your management of cover, you will play a crucial role in the daily smooth running operation of the academy. Other necessary qualities include confidentiality, efficiency and being able to work on your own initiative and under pressure and a willingness to contribute to the wider life of King’s Academy Binfield (KAB) and King’s Academy Oakwood (KAO).

KAB opened in a superb building in September 2018 with 120 Year 7 students. In September 2019 a further 140 Year 7 students, 30 Year R students and 21 Year N students joined the academy. Also in September 2019, KAO, a brand new 1 FE primary school a mile away, opened with Year R and a mixed Year 1/2. KAB and KAO will continue to grow year on year to a roll of over 1800 students, aged 3-18. Both academies will be run cohesively sharing the same values, curriculum, opportunities and expectations of excellence.

The post is for 37.5 hours per week term time only, with five additional days to be worked across the year. Hours of work will be 7.30am – 3.30pm Monday to Friday.

KAB and KAO are part of the King’s Group Academies MAT led by a team of former and current Ofsted ‘outstanding’ head teachers and Her Majesty’s Inspectors (HMI). Please note link to King’s Group Academies Vision and Mission - https://kingsacademies.uk/aboutus/vision-and-mission/
