A new role of ‘Assistant Head Teacher – Behaviour 4 Learning – SA6’ has been created at le Rocquier School for September 2018 or January 2019.    

This new post will be crucial in Le Rocquier’s journey over the next few years and will be an exciting opportunity for the right person.  Its focus is to reshape student learning behaviours so the school’s learning community is aspirational, expects more from students, students expect more from staff and students are equipped with resilience in order to thrive in class.  For those who need longer to acquire good study skills, the help will be in place to ensure that no matter what the behavioural barriers are, learning is always available.    

This role is about changing culture within the school while ensuring the school’s processes and procedures are robust and that their use is fair and consistent across the school. Vision and leadership are required to re-model the school’s approaches to create wrap-around support structures which promote inclusion, positive learning behaviours and dovetail in with the school’s student welfare and inclusion work.  

This is an exciting role and an opportunity to turn your vision into reality in a school open to new ideas and approaches which work for everyone.
