I am currently part of the extended leadership team and as part of the extended leadership team I have completed the Coaching and Mentoring for Middle Leaders course. I am also currently completing the Leadership Pathways course As Director of the Sixth Form I have to manage staff from a variety of departments within the school proving I have excellent interpersonal skills and a willingness to be approachable to all members of the school community and listen to their opinions and ideas.
I have excellent leadership skills and have lead on whole school policies. I am part of the leadership team responsible for teaching and learning and raising standards across the academy. This is something I fully commit to as the previous OFSTED highlighted this and pupil attainment as an area of concern and development for the school. This role I complete by leading CPD sessions for staff and monitoring the impact by lesson observations and learning walks. I have an excellent understanding of the OFSTED criteria for grading lessons and how to coach teaching staff to progress from satisfactory to good or from good to outstanding teaching. I have also worked within the team to develop a new lesson plan to improve questioning within lessons, such as the planning of differentiated questions, and the introduction of the lessons ‘big question’. This has helped develop the questioning skills of the staff and more open ended questions and differentiation are now evident from lesson observations and learning walks. To develop teaching and learning further I have been integral in implementing coaching trios (outstanding teachers supporting other staff by coaching and mentoring and developing outstanding practice in others) and have the ability to identify best practice within the teaching staff. My commitment to excellence in teaching and learning is further supported by being a NQT, GTP, PGCE and Teach First mentor and I also have previous experience of mentoring in a training school. This shows I have a strong commitment to quality professional development of all staff and can support your school in terms of your training school status. In terms of my own teaching I have had 100% pass rate in both Science and Health and Social Care and whilst at my previous school was the lead teacher for key stage 3 Science for the level 6+ programme. I was also head of department for Health so I have the relevant experience of running a department as well as extensive pastoral knowledge.
Part of my whole school responsibility involves behaviour management implementation across the school. I have completed a behaviour management training course which allows me to train other members of staff in to how to manage classroom and behaviour around school effectively. I have also been involved in assessing and modifying the behaviour policy for the academy and writing a new corridor behaviour policy. Additionally I will support staff within the classroom for challenging classes or students and offer support and guidance for students to manage their own behaviour for learning.
I joined my current school as Head of House but within three months was asked to apply for the position of Director of the Sixth Form and become part of the extended leadership team. My role as Director of Post 16 and Vocational studies has seen me be part of the development of a new sixth form and proves I have the ability and experience to implement, initiate and manage change effectively. During the development of the new sixth form I have had to manage the subject directors and lead the team to plan a diverse curriculum (from level 1 to level 3), write a pastoral programme and support teachers in delivering a post 16 curriculum as many teachers had not had this experience before. I have also had to construct a new timetable for both staff and pupils. Part of my role also involves aspirational target setting (using a variety of benchmarking measures) and careful monitoring of the provision and progress of the students within the sixth form and I am committed to ensuring that all students are included within the curriculum, achieve high standards and make excellent progress with their learning and personal development. I have experience of tracking and monitoring of different curriculum areas and experience of focusing on teaching and learning across different faculties. These transferable skills will allow me to have the desired impact within your school by leading and supporting staff to plan and deliver excellent lessons. I am able to use my skills and my ability to lead and motivate others to have a positive impact on teaching and learning to ensure that all students achieve their full potential. I have also written the sixth form’s school improvement plan proving I have the ability to think and act strategically in a challenging and new environment in order to achieve the aims of the school, and to also make sure the students are receiving the best possible curriculum and pastoral care. Included also in this role is the development of CEIAG throughout the KS4 curriculum by supporting and leading the subject directors to implement this through subject teaching and parent’s curriculum evenings. I also interview Year 10 and 11 in terms of their career aspirations and offer guidance and explanations of pathways for further education and employment.
I am currently the designated person for child protection and have completed the level 3 safeguarding and also CAF training. I work within the SEN department liaising with heads of house in monitoring and evaluating student welfare issues and the involvement of external agencies such as CAMHS, IFS, BSS, Ed Psych and PSSS. The Achievement for All green paper supports my ethos of the importance of thorough identification processes for SEND pupils along with the need to implement quicker and more streamlined processes when it comes to administering assessments to children with multiple and complex needs. My position within this department incorporates completing CAF assessments and referrals, monitoring LAC students (including sharing whole school strategies to improve learning) and attending their reviews, monitoring PA students, management of students with behaviour difficulties (referral to BSS if required, target setting and the assessment of learning needs) and the referral of CP concerns to social services. During the monitoring of PA students I work with families and the student attendance team to implement strategies to improve attendance. Management of students with behaviour difficulties includes the involvement of target setting on IBPs and IEPs, the use of wave 3 interventions and supporting staff with the understanding of the link between literacy levels and behaviour. I am also part of the review process of IEPs and involve and maintain excellent links with all stakeholders. My role as the designated person also involves the training of staff in child protection procedures and supporting staff when reporting CP issues. Another part of my role involves the statement annual reviews of SEN students and writing reports of their progress and feeding back this information to all staff. My current school has a large number of EAL students and my responsibility to support these students includes providing a specialised learning package and overseeing the induction and tracking and monitoring whole school.
