Zaytouna Primary School is seeking to appoint two inspirational leaders to the newly created posts of Assistant Headteacher. These posts are now required due to the growth of the school.

We want to recruit people who are passionate about making a difference to children and want to challenge themselves to keep on improving. Our working relationships are positive, supportive and forward looking.

We are a warm and welcoming school that truly inspires all: children, parents and the wider community, by providing them with calm, reflective and safe environments in which they can be nurtured.
Our broad and balanced curriculum of intellectual, physical and spiritual education is all inspired and underpinned by the principles of the Islamic Faith and British Values so that children become positive contributors to any community in which they choose to live. We believe that children should have a positive emotional attachment to learning and be awed and inspired by the learning of Allah’s creation so that they become lifelong learners who see the whole world as their classroom.
Our school family celebrate diversity, where difference is respected. We prepare our children to live in a multi-cultural world where they value people of all faiths and none along with people of all walks of life and who challenge discrimination of any form.
The two posts will have a teaching commitment and dedicated time for leadership.
You will:
• Have the ability to identify and deliver outstanding teaching;
• Have middle and / or senior leadership experience;
• Be collaborative and inspirational, with a strong ability to motivate and empower staff and children to achieve their full potential;
• Care passionately about children and their development whilst still driving forward pupil progress and achievement;
• Have excellent interpersonal and communication skills, able to build on and maintain strong relationships with staff, parents and carers, children, governors and the local and wider community;
• Have the ability to lead on further improving teaching and learning and developing the wider curriculum, including lead whole school areas of responsibility.

In return we offer:
• A welcoming community and a highly motivated, professional staff team that are driven towards continuously raising standards;
• Excellent professional development through a programme of school level and Trust level opportunities;
• Calm and purposeful learning environments;
• Excellent partnerships between pupils, staff, parents, governors and community;
