What skills and experience we're looking for

Your responsibility will be to set the strategic academic direction for the academy, in conjunction with the Headteacher, and to ensure excellent, innovative standards of teaching and learning are achieved across the academy. The role requires the ability to grasp the bigger picture and the tiniest detail at the same time, and to command the respect of staff, pupils, parents, and governors.

You will also be required to carry out the general professional duties of a teacher for 3 days per week and to contribute to the pastoral and co-curricular life of the school.

What the school offers its staff

This is an exciting opportunity to be part of the growth of Manor Farm Academy. We are a successful, oversubscribed school situated in North Hykeham. We currently have classes of 30 pupils in each year group from Reception to Year 6. The entire team work very closely together to deliver a high standard of education, experience and enjoyment for every pupil.

At Manor Farm Academy we strive to provide the best possible education and to ensure happiness and achievement for all. Through high expectations, we strive to instil a sense of pride and confidence within all of our pupils. We aim to develop an environment where respect and honesty are valued, and individuality and difference are celebrated.

By harnessing the sense of wonder, curiosity, determination and independence that we see in our youngest children, and by encouraging our children to never stop asking why, we hope that a love of learning that extends beyond our academy walls is fostered. It is important to us that every child that leaves Manor Farm Academy is the best that they can be, that they are kind, confident and articulate and that they have a strength in their own convictions.

Further details about the role

We are specifically looking for candidates who:

  • are exceptional and dedicated classroom practitioners who have high expectations of teaching and pupil achievement
  • preferably have proven experience of working across both KS1 and KS2
  • will actively contribute to the development of our committed and professional staff team
  • are driven and have strong career aspirations
  • have specific expertise around assessment, data and achievement and a proven track record of implementing change and school improvement in this area.
  • has a successful track record of improving the quality of education through leadership, and proven leadership experience in delivering the highest expectations and standards across the curriculum (preferably in at least one core subject) and teaching and learning
  • is a highly articulate, outstanding communicator who is engaging and effective in building relationships, with the energy and charisma to lead and inspire others
  • has a ‘can do’ attitude, a desire to develop excellence across all areas of leadership, and is able to work under pressure to effectively manage the complex process of change
  • will deputise for the headteacher and be instrumental in shaping our whole learning community
