This role requires an individual that is prepared to consistently uphold the highest expectations, support and develop others in doing the same but also someone that can demonstrate compassion and empathy when needed.

Crucially, the postholder will need to have the expertise and interpersonal skills to enable successful work with all staff in further developing and refining consistent and effective classroom engagement and positive behaviour strategies.
