What skills and experience we're looking for
- Assistant Headteacher 1.0 FTE (Teaching & Learning)
- Assistant Headteacher 0.6FTE (Pastoral & Inclusion)
We are very excited to be advertising for these roles. Our leadership structure has been very stable for the past seven years and due to staff retirement, we have the opportunity to slightly change the leadership structure of the school to reflect our current needs. We are replacing one of our current deputy head posts with two Assistant Head posts with slightly different foci.
We have a very strong leadership team in school and we are looking forward to appointing two people to come and join our team to help us to continue to ensure that children and families at R A Butler have the best educational opportunities possible. Both roles are non- class based, but there will be an element of teaching required. Both of these roles will play a vital strategic role in the future of the school.
The 0.6FTE Assistant head post will work closely alongside our Deputy Head for Inclusion and Safeguarding (SENCO) to support the pastoral and behavioural needs of the children in the school to ensure they are ready for learning. They will support teachers to ensure the provision for SEN pupils in their class is excellent. This role will involve working closely with families of children with SEMH and SEN needs. Working days for this post can be negotiated, but we would prefer Monday, Friday and one other.
The 1.0FTE Assistant head post will work closely alongside our Deputy Head for Curriculum and Assessment. This role will be vital in ensuring all teachers are providing the highest quality of education for all children, providing coaching and improvement support as needed. This role will include daily teaching. This role also has a pastoral and behaviour remit.
What the school offers its staff
- Supportive and collaborative teaching teams
- Inquisitive children who love learning and being challenged
- The chance to be a member of a nationally recognised, forward-thinking Trust and Teaching School
- A very happy place to work and learn
R A Butler is a core school of the Saffron Academy Trust, working closely alongside local schools Katherine Semar School and Saffron Walden County High School (as well as other Trust schools) to provide the best educational experiences for our children. Staff CPD is highly valued at the school and our staff are able to take advantage of the many opportunities available to them through collaborative working with local schools. We are an active part of the Saffron Teaching Hub which enables us to be very outward looking. We support many members of staff to engage with National Professional Qualifications and research projects through the Hub, Cambridge University and the Maths Hub. We are also active members of a Computing Hub and Science Learning Partnership.

R A Butler Academy is a fantastic and vibrant place to work. Being three form entry, we are the largest primary school in Saffron Walden. As a large school, our teachers really benefit from working as a team. Each year group has three classes, so planning is shared and collaboration is high. We monitor teacher workload carefully and this is reflected in our working practices. We also employ a school counsellor, specialist PE & music teachers, learning mentor and school nurse.
