Year 8 Standards and Progress Leader

L8-10 (Full Time)

Required - 1st January 2021

Moulsham High School is a high performing comprehensive school that was ranked fifth in Essex in the 2019 performance tables. 'Behaviour is calm and the atmosphere is productive and positive, making it a nice place to be' (Ofsted 2020). Leaders have a genuine commitment to the well-being and development of all staff.

We are seeking to appoint an inspirational Standards and Progress Leader for Year 8, to take up post in January 2021. This is an exciting opportunity to help shape the future strategic direction of the school's pastoral work under the leadership of our new Deputy Headteacher Safeguarding, Behaviour and Attitudes. It is also a fantastic platform for further promotion to the position of Assistant Headteacher.

Standards and Progress Leaders are senior leaders of the school and, as part of the Executive team, meet with SLT three weekly. They are allocated a reduced teaching timetable to allow time to support and monitor students effectively. Standards and Progress Leaders are supported by a team of Pastoral Managers.

Standards and Progress Leaders are accountable for the standards (including the attainment and progress outcomes) reached by all students within their year group. Therefore, experience of having raised academic achievement is desirable.

To arrange a visit to the school outside of school hours, please contact Kevin Adams, using the details below. Alternatively, prospective candidates are welcome to telephone the Headteacher, Julia Mead, on 01245 260101 for an informal conversation about the post.

Closing Date: Monday, 5th October 2020 at noon.
