Salary Outer London MPR1 to UPR3 + TLR 1b
Required for September 2023 or earlier
Lammas School is seeking to appoint a Head of Year to the existing Student Care team. The successful candidate will lead and manage a year group, support and challenge students to continually improve in all aspects of daily school life, and work as part of a dedicated and successful existing Student Care team.
Experience working with students, families school staff and outside professionals is an advantage; however, the most important attributes are energy, tenacity, a positive approach, and a belief that every child at The Lammas School has the ability to succeed.
Please look at our website and explore the Trust website as fully as you can (www.griffinschoolstrust.org). You will see evidence of the shared life of the schools in the Trust in events such as the Science Symposium, the Arts Festival, the Sports Festival and Founders Day.
The Trust really is a family of schools which work closely together within and across phases and geographical hubs. So in joining Lammas you do have good relationships with local authority schools and projects but you also have a strong working relationship with your peers in Nicholas Chamberlaine School in North Warwickshire as well as day to day involvement with our two GST neighbour primaries, Willow Brook and Riverley, both outstanding and one a shining example of what a Griffin Great School looks and feels like. It is that journey to Griffin Great that informs our development planning. Ofsted validates our progress within a defined national framework: it emphatically does not set our agenda.
Having researched sufficiently to decide to apply, please tell us in no more than two sides of A4 in 11 points
(1) why you want to join Lammas School as a Teacher of Social Sciences and what you see as our challenges (2) why your personal track record matches or exceeds our requirements.
Please include a full CV with the names and direct contact details of two referees and the completed Safer Recruitment form.
To apply for this position include a full CV with the names and contact details of two referees and send it along with your supporting statement of no more than two sides of A4 and addressed to Carla Kenny, Head of School, at firstname.lastname@example.org telling us about your experience in contributing to schools high performance and your personal educational vision.
The deadline for applications is 12noon on Monday 20 March 2023, interviews to follow shortly afterwards.
