What skills and experience we're looking for

Governors hope to appoint someone who will:

-Love and care for our children as much as they would their own;

-Be, in every sense, a great teacher;

-Be enthusiastic, resourceful and keen to ensure that the highest possible standards of pupil achievement, personal development and well-being are achieved;

-Have high expectations of both themselves and those they work with;

-Be able to lead and inspire colleagues to continuously improve;

-Always be willing to go the extra mile for our children.

What the school offers its staff

This role will offer the successful candidate exciting challenges that will be both rewarding and fulfilling, and will support you to achieve your own personal career goals and aspirations. Cardinal Allen is a great place to work and an excellent community to belong to. We receive tremendous support from our parent body and our committed group of Governors. Our pupils actively engage in all aspects of school life, and there is a culture of mutual support and openness.

Further details about the role

Governors wish to appoint a dynamic and inspirational Assistant Headteacher; an individual with a sense of vision, and the enthusiasm, energy, and ability to develop a spirit of team work across the school. We are looking for an exceptional candidate who will be excited to take a leading role, use their initiative, and make a significant contribution to our journey in providing the very best for the children who have been entrusted to us.

Senior leadership is a significant step up from middle leadership, principally with regard to the responsibility that you will assume, but also in terms of the long hours that the post often demands. Governors want to appoint someone who is a ‘grafter’, a colleague who will give their absolute all for our children and staff, because they deserve nothing less.

Whilst this senior post comes with a teaching commitment, there is no preference with regard to subject specialism, and so please don’t allow that to be a factor when considering your application. All we expect is that whatever you teach, you will be a great teacher.
