We have a fulfilling and rewarding opportunity for a talented and researched-based practitioner to take on the role of Assistant Headteacher from September 2024.

The successful person will be an integral member of the school’s leadership team and work closely with our two Deputy Headteachers and the Headteacher in embedding our new school vision. This, in addition to being the strategic lead for special educational needs and behaviour. 

We require somebody who:

  • Is an exemplary classroom practitioner first and foremost, who will be able to support others to improve their teaching
  • Can strike a balance between being empathetic and supportive of pupil needs but also holds high ambition, believing every child can
  • Holds a calm and measured professional disposition around school and is able to model an objective view
  • Has exceptional organisational qualities and is efficient in meeting deadlines
  • Can coach, support, and line-manage staff including holding them to account for their practice and provision

In addition to the above, the successful person will work across both school sites (only 0.9 miles apart) and support the school’s operational running.

We can offer you:

  • Well-behaved children who appreciate all that we do
  • Appreciative families where the smallest things make a big difference
  • No overall classroom responsibility
  • Some protected time working from home time each week, in agreement with the Headteacher
  • The support of an Assistant SENCO
  • A Deputy Headteacher at either site, to call upon if needed
  • An approachable Headteacher who is committed to professional development opportunities in all forms

Successful competition of the National Award for SENCO is preferable although not essential for the right candidate to support our school to move forward.

It is a very exciting time to join our school with a new name, logo and uniform planned for September, to signify a fresh start.

Visits to the school are warmly welcomed and a place can be booked by contacting the school office and asking for Sarah Tompkinson. Telephone: 01283 247420
