Head of Year (Non Teaching) job summary

At Stowmarket High School we believe all pupils must be taught about mental health (and good physical health) to help them “grow up happy and well-rounded”. We need someone who is able to provide vision, direction and inspiration for students, who enjoys a challenge and is not afraid of change. Heads of Year are the driving force in maintaining high standards of behaviour for conduct. This is a key role within the pastoral structure of our school and is essential in establishing the purposeful and disciplined environment in which Stowmarket students shine. The successful candidate will join our dynamic pastoral team, reporting directly to the senior member of staff linked to the year groups which in turn is overseen by the Assistant Headteacher in charge of pastoral/behaviour. Heads of Year each lead a team of form tutors, taking overall responsibility for the organisation, welfare and discipline of the students. The Head of Year position requires someone who is robust and rigorous but caring and sensitive to the needs of the individual and who believes in the importance of paying attention to detail. The position is demanding but rewarding and requires someone who can multi-task and prioritise demands. Liaison with parents and with external agencies is an important aspect of the role. If you have these superhero qualities, then we would love to hear from you. Level 3 qualifications and GCSE Maths and English (or equivalent) are essential. Experience of working with secondary age students is desirable. Interview date: Thursday, 14th July 2022 Stowmarket High 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 successful applicant will be required to have an Enhanced Disclosure from the Disclosure and Barring Service.
