Job summary

We are looking to recruit a new Head of Year to provide an excellent pastoral system to join the team. It will be for Y5 in the first instance. You will lead the year group team to carefully monitor and support children’s academic success. You will model excellent relationships with children, parents and colleagues. Part of the role involves liaising with the senior leaders and
subject leaders to support the wider running of the school. The head of year is required to uphold the values and vision of the school within their team. You will be required to report to the senior leadership team on the progress and achievements of your year group.

Our academy provides a unique opportunity to teach both key stage two and key stage three children. We work with children age 9 – 13 (Y5 – Y8) and this age range enables us to put the curriculum at the heart of what we do. There are no national tests or exams at the end of key stage three and this empowers teachers to focus on driving a broad and balanced curriculum.
As a teacher you will be surround by professionals from a range of backgrounds including both primary and secondary training. Teachers share pedagogical practice with each other and there is a genuine sense of a learning community.

Our aim is to ensure that through the highest quality teaching of a broad, balanced and challenging curriculum in a stimulating environment, each pupil flourishes. With an excellent pastoral care system, we foster an environment where children feel safe and able to learn. We are a community that values each child and provides them with the opportunity to fulfil their
potential and enjoy learning. We believe in building a child’s confidence, adaptability and resilience for the future within an ordered and structured environment, where high expectations are a habit.

Gilbert Inglefield Academy is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

All appointments are subject to enhanced DBS checks.
