Looking for a position in a school that is as committed to the continued development and support of its teaching staff as it is to its pupils?

Here at Moor End Academy we are committed to developing all staff within their roles and creating opportunities for further career progression. Every employee of Moor End Academy has access to the Teachers Pension Scheme or West Yorkshire Pension Fund.

The Academy uses Schools Advisory Service as our cover insurer and included in this is a number of wellbeing benefits for all members of staff.

Why become the Behaviour Modifications Leader at Moor End Academy?

We are seeking to recruit a passionate and vibrant professional to lead Behaviour Modifications at the academy to support students address and overcome a range of barriers to their learning/engagement. The Moved Room will cater for a very small number of students who have failed to adhere to the academy behaviour policy. Students who are required to attend this provision will do so for a short period of time before returning to mainstream lessons. Throughout their time in the provision, students will reflect on their behaviours and receive behaviour modification support in this setting.

It will be a role, which will be highly valued within the academy and will be key to our impact and success with disadvantaged and/or vulnerable students.

This role will have a strong emphasis on communication as well as developing effective systems and structures to bring about meaningful change in attitudes to school, learning and future aspirations. Previous experience of working in a Pastoral setting in a school and/or an alternative provision setting is desirable but not essential. However, the successful candidate will have proven management experience as well as evidence of developing and maintaining key relationships with a range of staff and students to support improved attitudes to learning.

This role represents an exciting opportunity to become part of the Personal Development Behaviour and Welfare team which includes: an Assistant Principal, Heads of Year, Heads of House and Year Leaders.

Judged Outstanding in every OFSTED category in 2012 we have a track record of excellence both in terms of student outcomes and professional development.

If you are interested by the prospect of this exciting opportunity, we would be delighted to hear from you.

Closing date for applications: Wednesday 17th July 2019 at 9.00am
