We are seeking to appoint an inspirational Year Leader who will drive up the standards of attendance, ‘behaviour for learning’ and conduct of students within a year group.

As a Year Leader, you will work directly with the ‘Senior Leader – Behaviour’ in what is a key role in our drive to becoming a national beacon of educational excellence.

We actively welcome applications from colleagues who are already working in a pastoral/behaviour role as well as colleagues who are working in an educational setting and are passionate about becoming a Year Leader.

Career development recruitment incentives:  

  • Candidates should be looking at this post as a 3 year development pathway to the next stage of their career rather than just a ‘Year Leader’ post. The training and CPD you will receive will be phenomenal.

We advise you to come in and speak with the Headteacher to discuss the above and shape the next 3 years of your career.

In particular, we are seeking an individual who:  

  • Is fully aligned to our vision and key drivers;  
  • Is a dynamic and proactive individual who will not be satisfied until all students are making excellent progress, have excellent behaviour and excellent attendance;  
  • Will proactively work with senior leaders to regularly analyse behaviour and academic data relating to the performance of the year group and identify individuals and cohorts of students that need intervention or support and implement strategies to address this;  
  • Will play a leading role in terms of supporting the development of Academic Mentoring to ensure it is raising the standards of behaviour, academic achievement and reading;  
  • Will strive to implement effective approaches which support and engage our most challenging students;  
  • Will strive to implement effective strategies to rapidly improve and maintain high levels of attendance;  
  • Will be proactive in engaging parents.  
  • Will go above and beyond to ensure the job is done effectively and delivers results

The successful candidate will also be:  

  • Passionate about developing their own practice;  
  • Driven to keep up to date with the latest teaching and learning research and literature;  
  • Unwavering in their commitment to promoting the highest standards of teaching and learning across the department and the Academy;
