  • Work with staff to ensure the department reflects the school’s ethos and aims.
  • Develop a strategic view for the department which supports the vision, ethos and policies of the school.

  • Use national, local and school management data effectively, to monitor standards across the department.
  • Monitor the progress made towards achieving annual plans and targets and use the information to plan future developments.

As this is a new post, we are keen for the successful applicant to join our school after the Easter holidays. This will provide curriculum planning time to make this venture as successful as possible. Therefore, there will be no formal teaching timetable for the summer term, but we may require some support covering absent colleagues. This should provide an opportunity to become more familiar with the staff, pupils, policies and procedures before the start of the new academic year.
