ASSISTANT HEAD TEACHER

Beyond Web KIT-34.png

SCALE Leadership Scale L12 – L16

START DATE  19th April 2022

LOCATION The Robert Napier School

This is a new post, created to provide the Senior Leadership Team with additional capacity. This will enable us to make more rapid progress towards completing the school’s priorities. Following a period of rigorous review, the Senior Leadership Team has been redesigned and built on 2 central tenets. The first focuses on the Quality of Education for the students, with an Assistant Head Teacher responsible for each of Key Stages 3, 4 and 5. The second tenet focuses upon student welfare, with an Assistant Head Teacher responsible for Welfare, Safeguarding and Attendance, with another responsible for Special Educational Needs. This appointment is the final stage of the reorganisation, with the creation of a new post which has responsibility for student behaviour. This is a pivotal post which will work closely with the rest of the Senior Leadership Team to devise, lead and implement the school behaviour management strategy.

 

The successful candidate will be responsible for ensuring the behaviour strategy is carefully devised, based upon the school’s values, adapted and implemented as necessary, to enable staff to deliver effective lessons. The postholder will be responsible for being at the cutting edge of behaviour management techniques, delivering training to staff to enable them to use these consistently and effectively. They will also be responsible for the tracking and monitoring of behaviour and working with both the middle and senior leadership teams to implement the appropriate interventions to enable lessons to remain purposeful and focussed on the learning in hand.

 

Each Assistant Head Teacher also has a range of other responsibilities, commensurate with their position within the school. This includes line management responsibilities of pastoral team(s) and / or curriculum team(s). These will be agreed with the successful candidate, based upon their skillset and experience, and will be agreed before they take up post.

The recruitment into this post is the final stage in the transition to the new leadership for the school. In March 2021, the Head of School was promoted to substantive Head Teacher and the Executive Head Teacher promoted to Trust CEO. The successful applicant will be joining us at an exciting time for the school, as it begins the next chapter of its journey. Having undergone a period of rigorous review and significant changes to the teaching and learning strategies, quality assurance processes and curriculum, the school is establishing its presence as one of the leading schools within the Trust.
