We are a good school which was praised for excellent behaviour in our 2019 OFSTED Inspection. As a school our aim is to provide a supportive and nurturing environment in which all our students can flourish and be successful.  We are looking for an exceptional individual to become an integral member of our Senior Leadership Team, with Pastoral (Heads of Year) being the primary focus of the role.  Main responsibilities will include the successful running of pastoral systems, the implementation of processes to monitor the progress of all key groups and to lead on intervention as appropriate.  Coordinators for DP, More Able and SEN will assist with the identification of target students in each year group and you will have an overview of their roles.
