Assistant Headteacher job summary

"Pupils are happy and feel safe at this inclusive school. They learn how to look after their physical and mental well-being. Pupils trust staff to help them sort out any worries or concerns quickly. Behaviour in lessons and around school is good. Bullying is rare and dealt with appropriately. Pupils take care of each other and form strong friendships. One pupil summed this up by saying, ‘If you see someone without a smile, give them one of yours." (OfSTED, 2022).

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a motivated, hardworking individual to join our successful Senior Leadership Team at Emerson Valley School. We are a popular 4-form entry Junior School in the heart of Emerson Valley and we work closely with the school community at Merebrook Infant School. Together we make up Merevalley Federation.

In Merevalley Federation, we encourage our children to aspire to be independent, resilient, lifelong learners who have the skills to adapt to the changing world around them. They have respect for each other, themselves and our community. To be the best they can be as global citizens, we aim to develop socially aware individuals who understand the impact they can have on others. Our children are happy and develop a love and enthusiasm for learning, where they are challenged to their full potential. They have pride in everything they do from their relationships, to the effort they put in to achieving their goals. We strive to create a safe and nurturing environment where children’s mental health and well-being is at the heart of our Federation. To achieve our vision, everything we do is underpinned by our three key themes: Community, Pride, Aspire.

The successful candidate will work alongside the Executive Headteacher and Head of School to form our Senior Leadership Team, and work to implement our School improvement priorities.
