What skills and experience we're looking for

We are looking to appoint an Assistant Headteacher (Inclusion) to lead on pastoral care and inclusion in our popular and oversubscribed school.

The Assistant Headteacher (Inclusion) will work closely with the Headteacher, Deputy Headteachers and the wider Senior Leadership Team to provide professional leadership and management. The main responsibilities are for the pastoral care and inclusion for Years 7-11. The Assistant Headteacher will lead on the deployment of relevant resources and teams (eg Heads of Year), monitoring and evaluation of the portfolio area, and connected aspects of pastoral care and inclusion.

In addition, the Assistant Headteacher (inclusion) will work with the Headteacher / Deputies on broader strategic priorities. They will also have an appropriate teaching commitment.

What the school offers its staff

Belvidere School is an 11-16 mixed comprehensive academy, with around 830 students on roll, in the County Town of Shrewsbury. We have a truly comprehensive intake, drawn mostly from the surrounding area – most of our students walk to school. The vast majority of them progress to further education at the local college.

Numbers of students with EHCPs and children who are looked after are both well above average, and the school’s pupil premium numbers are above average for the county. We are proud of our comprehensive student profile, and welcome applications from candidates who are motivated by the challenge of leading the pastoral provision in our school.

Belvidere is part of the TrustEd CSAT Alliance, a Shropshire multi-academy trust, which is a family of Shropshire schools, consisting of 5 secondaries and 4 primaries. We are a professional and friendly trust committed to raising pupils’ aspirations so that all young people reach their fullest potential and achieve the success they want for themselves.

Belvidere has a strong track record of academic success, including a positive Progress 8 score in 2022. Our most recent Ofsted report was in 2013 and judged the school as Outstanding under the framework at that time.We no longer self-evaluate as Outstanding and we are therefore looking for a candidate who can help lead the school on its self-improvement journey. We recognise that although the vast majority of our students are enthusiastic about their school and their studies, some improvements to provision are needed.

Commitment to safeguarding

Belvidere School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people, and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. The post is subject to an Enhanced Disclosure from the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS).
