Head of Year (and teacher of either: Science, English, Design Technology, PE or IT) job summary

Pastoral Care RFSS

We believe that excellent pastoral care is vital to ensure students are ready for learning, positive, ambitious, and resilient.

We are looking to appoint an ambitious Middle Leader with a commitment to improving the life chances of students at RFSS. A Head of Year at RFSS is key in ensuring students are given the support and guidance they need to achieve their potential at RFSS.

We are looking for an excellent communicator with high expectations for all, who can develop positive relationships with all stakeholders. You will understand the barriers to learning students can face particularly those of Disadvantaged and SEND students. You will be committed to working alongside students, their families, and other professionals to remove these barriers with the support of an Assistant Head of Key Stage (non-teaching) and a team of dedicated Form Tutors.

If you want to support and lead teachers who give their best everyday then we want to hear from you. We know that the key to helping our students achieve their individual best is also high-quality teaching. As a teacher you will have demonstrable experience of getting the most out of your students and as a middle leader you will have visible passion for supporting school wide initiatives to be excellent.

Please get in touch if you would like to be part of a school community that:

- Places professional development at the heart of its ethos

- Values relationships between all stakeholders

- Prepares students for life, not just for examination results

- Has a long term vision to reach Outstanding

If you feel that you could bring further impetus to our drive to improve the provision for our students and have the necessary energy, enthusiasm, and sense of humour to take us forward in this exciting curriculum area then please get in touch.

About Rugby Free Secondary School

Welcome to Rugby Free Secondary School! RFSS opened in 2016 and moved into a brand-new purpose-built facility in 2019.

A new headteacher Samirah Roberts joined the school in 2019 following a difficult Ofsted inspection, however we are extremely proud to say that following our most recent Ofsted inspection in July 2021, RFSS is now officially a ‘Good’ school - only the third school in the country to make this transition from inadequate across all areas! Whilst we are proud of this achievement, particularly during a pandemic! We are continually looking to evolve and develop, and this year opened the doors to our brand-new Sixth Form!

This school is committed to providing success for all its students and providing a workplace that supports its staff to ensure they can work to the best of their ability for our students every day. In recent times, we have worked hard to ensure relationships for learning are at the centre of our school, whilst also redesigning the curriculum and striving for consistently high-quality and teaching and learning.

Our core values of kindness, curiosity, collaboration, respect, resilience, and endeavour underpin everything that we do, and make us what we are. Both staff and students communicate with each other using these values, and these are also shared with our community, who also are integral to our school’s progress.
