Job Details

A large Secondary School in West Birmingham is looking for an Assistant Head of Year to join its outstanding team of staff. Are you looking to take on an exciting new challenge supporting a large group of students?  Are you passionate about working with students to manage their behaviour effectively to ensure they get the most out of their education? This Assistant Head of Year position is an excellent opportunity to demonstrate your pastoral skills whilst managing a cohort of around 280 students.

It will be your responsibility to work with the Head of Year to resolve poor behaviour and try and work towards practical solutions for students. You will also be providing pastoral support for students, some of whom may have SEMH needs, so it is important that you approach this with compassion and understanding to help the students most effectively.
The role:

  • Manage cohort of 280 students
  • Do duties, before, during and after school
  • Monitor behaviour data and provide pastoral support
  • Pick up and investigate incidents
  • Meet students to resolve and follow up issues etc.
