Primary Leadership Position
Achievement and Progression Leader
The Achievement and Progression Leader will be a qualified teacher with a passion for using data to inform decisions. Committed to British and International Education ideals the Achievement and Progression Leader will lead continuous school improvement as part of our Extended Primary Leadership Team. S/he will have strong personal management skills, excellent interpersonal skills and will contribute to teams in a positive, productive and constructive way.
Members of our Extended Primary Leadership Team play an integral role in the strategic leadership of each Campus; if successful you will contribute to the creation of a strong professional culture based on inter-disciplinary teamwork and lively professional dialogue.
The Achievement and Progression Leader will lead the Database Administrator and ensure that the standards of achievement and progression at the Primary Campus are of the highest possible levels. The post holder will report directly to the Vice-Principal with the responsibility for Achievement and Progression. There will be some teaching responsibility, but with a significantly reduced teaching load. We expect all leaders to be flexible and able to teach across the primary age.
It is essential that the Achievement and Progression Leader has an excellent knowledge of technology and the ability to learn how to use systems quickly. At KLASS we use a number of different reporting and assessment systems including iSAMS, Tapestry and Classroom Monitor. The ability to ensure that these systems ‘talk to’ each other is essential.
The Achievement and Progression leader will be responsible for aspects of the administration of iSAMS including the setting up and running of reports. A working knowledge of SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) would be advantageous, but not essential, in this role. The post holder will maintain an accurate assessment database to analyse GL assessment data including CAT4 and the Progress Tests in English and Maths. S/he will work alongside staff to develop their use of data to better meet the needs of students, produce progress reports, set up management systems to track the progress of students and import target setting data. Alongside this, s/he will also support the school timetable development.
At KLASS you will be encouraged and nurtured to be the best leader and teacher you can be through continuous internal and external professional development, peer to peer review, monitoring and evaluation and personal study. This is truly a forward thinking and innovative environment to work and learn.
Please address all of these aspects in your letter of application. In addition, please ensure that your CV and letter clearly show how you meet the job description and person specification for this role.
The KLASS benefits package includes a highly competitive salary, a generous contribution towards housing, excellent medical insurance, contract renewal incentives, relocation flights and allowances and free school places for dependent children.
