We are looking to appoint a dynamic, innovative and forward-thinking
Assistant Headteacher to join the Senior Leadership Team at Kingsbury Green
This role is being advertised following the successful promotion
of the previous incumbent to Deputy Headteacher at another school. Due to the late nature of that appointment,
in Term 5 of last year, we have had to delay advertising for this position,
hence the January start.
The purpose of this role is to lead on the continuing
development of high standard behaviour across the school and to develop a
culture for learning in its broadest sense. In addition, the successful candidate will
lead a strong team of safeguarding professionals, undertaking the overall
responsibilities of a DSL. You do not
currently need to be a DSL but must be committed to completing the training
required to fulfil that role.
Whatever your experiences to date, you must demonstrate how you
have had an impact on the lives of young people e.g., through improving behaviour,
raising academic performance or through strategic leadership in another form. Most important of all is that you have the
kind of positive mindset that believes anything is possible and that you are:
- an outstanding classroom practitioner
- an effective and innovative leader with
up-to-date knowledge of behavioural pedagogy and raising standards
- passionate about inclusive education,
notably pupils supported by the Pupil Premium and those pupils with SEND
- committed to a culture of safeguarding
where all pupils can achieve their full potential
- energetic, enthusiastic and full of new
- ambitious and keen to play a significant
role in the future development of Kingsbury Green Academy
- supportive of the development of the
Trust and ready to contribute to the wider Trust leadership.
