KAA is a growing 11-18 academy situated in the heart of North Kensington. We opened in brand new buildings in 2014 and our facilities are second to none. We currently have 660 students in Years 7, 8, 9 and 12 with us, and are growing every year. Our Sixth Form opened this year and has made a very successful start.
At KAA we are building a school which has the very highest standards - both in terms of academic teaching and life beyond the classroom. In July 2014 the Department of Education reported we are “one of the best new academies they had ever seen” in terms of our planning and curriculum development. In November of that year we were inspected by Miriam Rosen, former HMCI, who wrote “the academy has made a remarkable start and is already securing highly positive outcomes for students.” We look forward to our first full Ofsted inspection in due course and aim to achieve ‘outstanding’ in all areas.
We are currently looking for a talented and committed Senior Behaviour Manager to join our growing Academy.
The Senior Behaviour Manager work vertically across all six year groups in the academy, providing strategic and operational support to SLT and Directors of Learning (DoLs). They will attend SLT and DoL meetings as required. They will be responsible for setting a clear vision for behaviour inside and outside the academy, and model for staff exemplary practice in terms of managing challenging student behaviour. They will be expected to, alongside DoLs, monitor the behaviour and attitude to learning across all year groups, liaising with teachers and subject leaders and offering support and guidance where necessary. They will have delegated responsibility for key aspects of our behaviour policy, for example internal exclusions, detentions and alternative provision. They will be a key point of contact for parents, and should maintain positive, professional relations with all our parent community.
Why so late in the year, and only on a fixed term basis?
We are sure this question may be on candidates’ minds as this is an unusual time of year for a school to be recruiting to a senior role such as this. By way of explanation, the timing is linked to the recent Grenfell Tower fire and the subsequent displacement of our school to a temporary site. We believe that the fallout of the fire and our new, temporary location away from our familiar physical learning environment means it is a sensible plan to seek to add management capacity in this area.
- To have an overview of the range of barriers to learning that impact on student progress, with reference to behaviour and attitudes to learning in and out of the classroom.
- To lead and manage student behaviour day to day, acting as a role model for students and staff by demonstrating high quality pastoral care and support, rigorous expectations and a visible, professional presence with students.
- To work closely and collaboratively with all academy senior and middle leaders with regard to implementing academy behaviour systems.
- To monitor student behaviour and, where necessary, refer students to the academy’s therapy and learning mentor services, in order to improve behaviour and student well-being.
-To maintain strong communication with parents and carers to ensure the behaviour systems implemented within the school are supported and communicated clearly to parents.
