Do you have the drive to make a real difference?
We wish to appoint a non-teaching Student Development Champion - Head of Year. This is a unique opportunity to join a successful academy as part of a supportive and very hard working team.
Our Heads of Year are non-teaching team members that provide the support that is required to enable barriers to learning to be overcome.
A key focus will be supporting attitude to learning and you will be the key contact for parents on all cross curricular or pastoral matters for your year group.
As a Head of Year will have responsibility for daily matters such as consistency checks, on-call, uniform, attendance and attitude to learning as well as supporting pupils with their learning in order to meet their targets.
The successful candidate will have an enthusiasm that will inspire students to outstanding outcomes.
We are an aspirational academy operating across two sites. The Lower Academy specialises in the teaching of our Key Stage 3 students, whilst the Upper Academy specialises in teaching Key Stage 4 and 5. We pride ourselves on being a truly inclusive academy and this is actively underpinned by our motto 'Aspire Believe Achieve'.
Both of our Academies are rated as 'Good' by Ofsted and we are looking for colleagues who share the drive and passion necessary to ensure every student achieves their potential.
The academy prides itself on providing staff with the most appropriate and effective support to ensure that their professional development needs are fully met and that there is a high level of challenge in the opportunities they are offered. We have an excellent track record of providing promotion and responsibility opportunities to staff that aspire to leadership.
If you can engage, motivate and challenge our students to make exceptional progress then we would welcome your application via our website www.basildonacademies.org.uk or by contacting Lisa Church - firstname.lastname@example.org
The Basildon Academies are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects staff to share this commitment. The successful applicant will be subject to DBS and health checks.
Information about the School
Our Academies are graded as ‘Good’ by Ofsted and our goal over the next 12 months is to achieve ‘Outstanding’.
The Basildon Academies is focused upon developing the whole child; our curriculum has been developed to enable our students to develop their knowledge, understanding and skills so that they will become lifelong learners. This includes opportunities for linguistic, mathematical, scientific, technical, human, social, physical and artistic learning so that students make progress in a wide range of subjects.
We set high expectations of all our students and this, in turn, ensures we create a positive climate for learning in which every student can reach their full potential. Our Academy is a calm, orderly and purposeful environment where students enjoy their learning, make good progress and feel safe.
Our Sixth Form is a major part of the academy with the structure modelling itself on developing independent learning skills like those seen in universities which allows students to continue their studies in their specialist subject areas. Students are very much encouraged to become mature adults being engaged in many aspects of the life of the academy which further develops those much needed skills to go on into university or the world of work.
