United Learning

The John Roan School is part of United Learning, a large, and growing, group of schools aiming to offer a life changing education to children and young people across England.

Our schools work as a team and achieve more by sharing than any single school could. Our subject specialists, our Group-wide intranet, our own curriculum and our online learning portal all help us share knowledge and resource, helping to simplify work processes and manage workloads for an improved work-life balance.

As a Group, we can reward our staff better: with good career opportunities, better pay, benefits, and ultimately, the satisfaction of helping children to succeed. We invest in our staff wellbeing. Our academies each have at least eight INSET days per year (with three of those solely dedicated to planning), and an ongoing group-wide wellbeing programme. It's an ethos we call ‘the best in everyone’.

The Role:

The Head of Year position will see you are working closely with Year 7 students, their parents and class teachers to monitor and pick up any issues surrounding attendance, behaviour and attainment levels. We are looking for candidates who understand how to work effectively with students, their parents and their teachers to build a strong partnership in which the young people can thrive and succeed at school.  It is anticipated that the successful candidate will lead this cohort of students as they move through their secondary school years.

A Head of Year position in our school is a Senior Middle Leader role that requires a strong classroom practitioner who is able to demonstrate a knowledge and understanding of how to identify and overcome barriers to learning, build a positive learning ethos in the year group and manage their time effectively in this busy role.  We have a strong team of staff working to support the welfare and safety of our students and the Head of Year will work within this team. Our ideal candidate will have experience of working in the Inner City,  be successful in their subject specialism and have a good understanding of how to monitor attendance, behaviour and attainment data.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff to share this commitment.

References will automatically be requested for all shortlisted applicants prior to interview. The successful applicant will be required to be DBS checked prior to taking up post.
