Assistant Headteacher job summary

This is a fantastic opportunity to continue your leadership journey in a well led, collaborative and supportive environment. Little Ilford is a friendly, inclusive and oversubscribed school in Newham making a big difference to the lives of our diverse student community. In October 2016, we moved into a brand new state-of-the-art building. We have a strong reputation and high expectations of both students and staff and consider this to be an exciting place to work and develop, where creativity and innovation are nurtured. Our targets for attainment and progress are challenging, but staff have the focus and determination to realise them for the benefit of our students. We really know our students, and focus on them as individuals. Pastoral systems are strong and we value a curriculum offer and activities that educate the whole child.

As a school we are absolutely committed to ensuring that all staff have access to comprehensive professional development and have developed an exciting and impactful programme designed to offer training that makes a real difference. We value a good home/work balance and do what we can to support our staff in this respect.

We are looking for a committed, enthusiastic and high calibre leader to join our energetic and dynamic Senior Leadership Team. The exact nature of the role will be determined by the skills, attributes and experience that the successful candidate brings to the post. However, experience in data analysis and reporting would be beneficial. The role will be critical in ensuring that the quality of teaching and learning in the school is outstanding. You will engage and inspire our students as a subject teacher, allowing them to make outstanding progress and achieve strong results. You will be pivotal in ensuring that the Senior Leadership Team is strategic, innovative and caring in its approach to both students and staff.

We will support and develop you to become an outstanding leader and provide working partnership opportunities with other schools. We are an aspirational, reflective and creative learning community where all adults are learners who take risks in order to achieve excellent results for our students.

We look forward to receiving your application.
