Pivot 6 Lead
Hours: 35.5 per week, 41 weeks per year
Location: 87 Bradley Road, St Thomas Gardens, HD2 1RA
We are looking to appoint a strategic, innovative and enthusiastic individual who can provide strong leadership, management and the vision to lead our Pivot 6 provision.
At Pivot we believe children deserve better. In our academies we teach and support children and young people from Key Stages 1 – 5 who have been excluded from school, for whom mainstream education is simply not working, or those with an EHCP who require a specialist placement. Every day our teams do incredible work, making a huge difference to some of the most complex and challenging children, many of whom come to us with some really traumatic backgrounds.
At Pivot 6, we offer specialist support for KS4 children who have been permanently excluded from mainstream school. We offer core academics, creativity and personal development but also clear focus on developing children’s softer skills. Our aim in Pivot 6 is to support students academically and socially to prepare them for transition back into mainstream school.
We are seeking someone with experience of management and leadership within an education setting, specifically working with children and young people with Social, Emotional and Mental Health issues. The role will require an organised individual to manage to day to day operations of the site including the management of staff and resources at the setting. You will be expected to monitor the academic progress of students, ensure all statutory requirements are met but most importantly, be a role model to staff, students, parents and carers.
We have a fantastic team in place at Pivot 6 and this role will ensure the direction of the provision is maintained, ensuring the staff team continue to be motivated and that culture of positivity drives the provision to continued improvement. Whilst this role will have accountability for our Pivot 6 provision, you will have access to staff in a variety of support roles, including a Strategic Lead for School Development, Lead Social Worker, an Educational Psychologist and a Therapeutic Lead.
You will need to be inspirational and ready to go that extra mile to ensure students are given access to opportunities previously not received. The role will be challenging but also incredibly rewarding, with a real chance to change our student’s lives.
