BCCS welcomes applications from creative leaders who are committed to promoting an inclusive culture where the needs of all students are championed and met.
The post holder will be on the Senior Leadership Team responsible for the Ofsted framework standards of Behaviour and Attitudes in Years 7-11. A core part of the role is to promote the drive to increase outcomes and opportunities for students with SEND needs, Pupil Premium, Looked After (or Previously Looked After) designation and other vulnerable groups, removing any gaps in achievement within BCCS and nationally.
The successful post holder will have the skillset to inspire a learning environment where positive attitudes and engagement drive standards of achievement. It will be important to demonstrate an expert appreciation of the challenges faced by young people, for example those living in care or with significant additional educational needs. Experience of working with external agencies to successfully support students who present challenging behaviours and circumstances will be highly valued. We are looking for a record of driving whole school improvement through innovative thinking.
It is expected that the successful applicant will aspire to develop their leadership at our school. BCCS is committed to offering outstanding CPD; there will be opportunities to work collaboratively with other schools in Cathedral Schools Trust and as part of the Teaching School.
We recognise the benefit of having a diverse workforce, representative of our student cohort, which can offer a range of perspectives in decision-making. We welcome applications from individuals of all groups that are under-represented in education.
The specific teaching timetable will be agreed with the post holder. It will include approximately 10-20 hours of teaching in a two week timetable. Applications are welcomed from teachers of all subjects.
