What skills and experience we're looking for

Dear applicant,

NSN serves a well-established community with wonderful pupils who are eager to learn and a strong team of great teachers keen to make the difference needed to achieve excellence for all. We need an exemplary practitioner who can model the high expectations of their practice to other staff and pupils across the school. We need our new colleague to have a passion for seeing great teaching and learning transfer to excellent outcomes and be strong to unpick the assessment data to quickly help identify where pupil progress can be most efficiently achieved through timely and effective action.

This role is for an Assistant Headteacher, Raising Standards Lead. This will be a non-class based role, however, there will still be plenty of opportunities to support and develop quality first teaching across KS1 & 2, with specific expectations to actively support with interventions when necessary, to support great Y6 outcomes. This post will be an ideal stepping stone for an ambitious professional who is looking for deputy headship in the next few years and potentially to progress to Headship. The essential aspect of the role is to be an exemplary role model to others in teaching and learning and developing strong practices that support teachers to use effective assessment and data analysis to make teaching focused and targeted to achieve the best outcomes possible for our pupils. This will include coaching and mentoring new colleagues to the profession as well as monitoring and supporting experienced colleague to embed QFT that maximises great pupil academic progress.

The role will involve working closely with the experienced SLT team and supporting various administrative and practical activities throughout the course of each week to ensure the safe and well ordered running of the school is maintained, the intentions of the SIP are met and that all staff and pupils feel empowered and supported to be the best they can be. If you see yourself as a future school leader, then this is the chance develop your own expertise and build new expertise in a supportive, progressive, collaborative and solution focused culture.

If you have experience of leading assessment, using systems like PIXL or similar, or have experience of leading English or Maths and can demonstrate impactful strategies that have raised standards and promoted great pupil outcomes then this could be the perfect next step of your career. A chance to help drive excellence as a school leader and as part of a supportive, compassionate, committed, and collaborative team. We already have strong cultures developed around conduct and school ethos rooted on Restorative Practice. We have been recognised as a Centre of Excellence for Inclusion by the IQM, 2 years consecutively. We have a great recent OFSTED inspection recognising our Outstanding L&M. We now need to ensure we deliver the best academic outcomes for children who absolutely deserve to leave NSN high school ready.

Our friendly, spacious and well-resourced site is located close to the centre of Lowestoft.

Please do take the chance to come and visit us and find out more about the role and see why our team think NSN is a great place to work and help make the difference for children who absolutely deserve our commitment to excellence for all!
