Head of Year/RSL job - but what does this mean??

    I'm considering applying for a Head of Year job that has come up in school (mostly for the experience, doubt I'd get it) but I cannot get my head around this sentence:

    "How you would develop a 'GRIT' approach to academic support from outside the curriculum."

    In my letter of application I'm supposed to say how I'd do the above, but I can't decipher whether 'GRIT' is a genuine acronym (deputy head suggested it was, but googling turns up NOTHING) or a gross misuse of the English language. Any ideas?

    "Grit (personality trait) ... Grit in psychology is a positive, non-cognitive trait based on an individual's perseverance of effort combined with the passion for a particular long-term goal or end state (a powerful motivation to achieve an objective)."
