What skills and experience we're looking for

January 2024 - Ideally Full time, although Part time will be considered - Permanent or fixed term – to be discussed

Our lovely church school is looking to invite applications for the post of an Assistant Headteacher. Secondment opportunities will also be considered.

The role(s) will be fundamental in supporting our lovely school to continue to develop and grow as we build on our very positive GOOD Ofsted Outcome in September 2022.

The Assistant Headteacher will take a central role in assisting the Headteacher, Deputy Headteacher and Governing Body to develop our school, in accordance with our shared values and nurturing ethos.

So, are you an experienced Primary Teacher seeking to step up into Leadership? Perhaps you're already a Leader and want to further your career as an Assistant Headteacher?

We are keen to meet someone who is ready to lead our children in KS2 alongside a reduced teaching commitment for at least the first year, and to build further on our curriculum and assessment mapping and development, an interest in Maths would be great but not essential.

You will work closely with other school leaders to lead the Primary School, cohesively.

Who are we looking for:
• An exceptional, experienced practitioner with a passion for learning and the ability to develop others
• A team player
• An excellent communicator
• Someone who is full of positivity and has a good sense of humour
• Someone keen to experience and develop a school leadership career

What we can offer you:
• A relational and empowering leadership ethos
• A wide range of professional development opportunities
• A beautiful school, with excellent teaching resources and working environment
• Collaboration opportunities between the schools in the MAT (ODST)
• Potential opportunities for career progression across schools within the Academy Trust.
