Data Analysis Task Example - Head of Year Pastoral - In Tray Interview Practice

(1)
This resource is a practice data task for Heads of Year/Pastoral Leaders preparing for interview. The resource provides a fictionalised set of data from a fictionalised year group, space to analyse the data yourself and to come up with your three priorities. In addition, I provide the three priorities I would identify in timed conditions as well as the ‘answers’ I would provide in an interview circumstance. This is the great way to practice your data analysis skills for interview from a pastoral perspective. This resource goes well with my other resources on raising attainment and analysing data as a pastoral leader.

One Punch Kills - Fighting - Physical Violence Assembly

UPDATED! This assembly was designed after a series of fighting and physically violent incidents in my year group at the time.

It includes: statements students might hear in relation to violence; as aggressors and bystanders information about why one punch kills are so dangerous a list of potential injuries from punches explanation of potential life long changes 3 news stories about fatal punches and a visual representation of the connection between people involved The final slides also include an interview with one of the offenders about the impact of his decision on the rest of his life. Very powerful, very moving. There is also a link to a police video on the dangers of one punch kills. Please check it is appropriate your year group before using - sensitive content.
