Job summary

Kimberley is a great school and this role will enable you to play a lead role in shaping the futures of our talented students. This is an exciting opportunity for someone with successful experience of pastoral or subject middle leadership, who is passionate about improving Kimberley School and will provide an ideal stepping stone for anyone whose aspiration is to lead their own school.

Our simple aim is to enable every student to achieve or surpass their academic and social potential. In the last five years we have driven significant improvements across all aspects of the school and we are now providing the secondary school education that this community deserves.

In September 2020 we opened our brand new, multi-million pound, Sixth Form Centre. We have been the highest performing sixth form in the area for a number of years and we now have the facilities and buildings to match this.

The retirement of our current hugely successful Assistant Head Teacher has created this unique opportunity for a talented and experienced leader to take responsibility for the strategic development of the sixth form. This multi-faceted role encompasses oversight and leadership of quality of education, outcomes, personal development, enrichment and progression. Working with the head teacher and other senior leaders in school, the post holder will be able to grow the role to really make it their own. If you want to make a difference to young people’s lives, then this may be the job for you.

The post will require you to work in partnership with the Senior Leadership Team to ensure the continuous improvement of the sixth form. Specifically, you will:
• Lead a calm, safe, environment where all adults secure the highest standards of student behaviour and academic achievement
• Lead and model best practice for all staff
• Lead on positive behaviour and attitude to learning
• Implement strategies that enable vulnerable students to achieve, attend and behave in-line with the rest of the school
• Promote and model good relationships with parents, which are based on partnerships, to support and improve students’ behaviour, attendance and achievement

As a member of the Senior Leadership Team you will support the smooth day to day running of the whole school, including responsibilities outside the sixth form. Along with all senior and middle leaders across the school you will play a key role in ensuring that all staff achieve a sensible work/life balance, flourish in their roles and can achieve their professional goals.

All staff are recruited under our safer recruitment processes, in line with DfE requirements, which includes an enhanced DBS check. We have a suite of safeguarding procedures, policies and guidance for all of our staff and volunteers to ensure we actively promote children and young people's welfare and safety.

We are also committed to equality of opportunity in employment and it is our policy to promote equal opportunities in employment, regardless of race, colour, nationality, ethnic or national origin, creed, disability, sex, age, marital status or sexual orientation. This applies to recruitment and selection practices, training, promotion and in the application of national and local agreements in respect of pay and conditions of service.

The application pack includes a job summary, job description and person specification.

Applications must be made on an EMET application form which you can download from the East Midlands Education Trust website. Please note that CVs will not be accepted.

Applicants should include a statement, no more than 1 side of A4 (Calibri 11), setting out why you want this role and what difference you will make to students and staff of The Kimberley School if you are appointed.
