What skills and experience we're looking for

We are looking to appoint a positive, dynamic and enthusiastic head of year. The successful applicant will lead a strong pastoral team to raise student achievement (progress, attendance, behaviour and attitudes) for a year group, ensuring disadvantaged students excel.

As head of year, you will be involved in continuing to develop a positive culture for learning and promoting a rewarding and competitive atmosphere that celebrates achievement.

If you feel ready to combine your teaching with a whole school responsibility, this post will provide you with opportunities to demonstrate the leadership skills necessary to make a real difference to student lives. Applications are welcome from experienced teachers particularly in mathematics, science, geography and history.

We are proud to offer an attractive range of benefits including:

§ Access to the Teachers’ Pensions Scheme and Local Government Pension Scheme.

§ Attractive annual leave entitlement for our full year employees starting at 25 days + Bank Holidays

§ Salary sacrifice cycle scheme.

§ Access to annual flu jabs

§ Employee Assistance Programme

§ Comprehensive CPD

§ Access to on-site gym and sports facilities at some of our schools

§ Staff long service recognised at our annual awards ceremonies

Commitment to safeguarding

The Four Stones MAT is fully committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff to share this commitment. As part of our requirements under Keeping Children Safe in Education we will undertake pre-employment checks on all shortlisted candidates. This role has the opportunity for regular contact with our children and young people and therefore this position is exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 and an enhanced DBS will be required for the successful candidate.

At TDMS we are ambitious and welcoming; we both support and challenge every child to leave our school with strong academic qualifications, a well-developed character and clear values that will carry them through to long term success. Our values of Ambition, Commitment, Creativity and Integrity ensure all students are equipped with the skills and mind-set they need in life. Our staff give 100% and in return, we ask our students to also give 100%. This means being ambitious in their thinking, hardworking and resilient. Excellent pastoral support coupled with determination to succeed means that every student will develop into a well-rounded young person and achieve their best. We are part of The Four Stones Multi Academy Trust who are a family of like-minded schools based in the West Midlands. We have come a long way in a short time and are now home to three schools, over 3,500 students, a Teaching School Hub and a SCITT (School Centred Initial Teacher Training) all with differing contexts and serving different communities. The Four Stones Multi Academy Trust is a great place to work – hardworking students, outstanding behaviour, research based teaching, committed staff and excellent facilities. We believe that a successful school is founded upon communication and team work and so staff contributions are essential in helping us move our schools forward. We recognise the importance of being heard and feeling valued and are relentless in our quest to ensure that our teachers are supported during their time in The Four Stones Multi Academy Trust.
