Extended Leadership Team - Pastoral Lead job summary

The ELT Pastoral Lead role, is both demanding and rewarding. You will have an energetic and enthusiastic nature, with the ability to think on your feet, and be able to command the respect of the students you are responsible for in a strict school. You will constantly need to multitask, prioritise and reprioritise as each day develops, to ensure that students are effectively safeguarded, monitored and supported, all whilst teaching high quality lessons. At times, you will need to drop everything to respond to students’ needs. You will also need to be prepared to constantly learn, develop and welcome constructive criticism. You will need to have a strong character, and be willing to hold students, parents and colleagues to account. You will pay attention to detail and become an expert on the Academy Behaviour Policy. At times, you will be juggling a number of issues at once, and you will be able to calmly organise yourself, without appearing flustered or stressed, to ensure that students and colleagues are effectively supported and the job gets done. You will have a solution focused approach, and because you will be trained as a Designated Safeguarding Lead, be prepared to stay late if required to ensure the safety of individual students. This role is partly reactive, as it is dictated by the needs of young people and therefore you must be willing to go the extra mile. You will be able to meticulously record your work to inform future interventions and be an efficient administrator.

You will be an excellent classroom teacher, with experience in a pastoral role such as a Head of Year or a Pastoral Leadership Role, ideally with experience of managing staff. You will also be an expert who is deeply knowledgeable in your chosen curriculum subject.

You will wholeheartedly embrace and embody our culture of no excuses, and our ethos of hard work, excellence, integrity and courtesy.

You will believe resolutely in the power of education to change the lives of families and young people, regardless of background or prior educational attainment.
