Deputy Head Teacher job summary

The Governors of Ravenswood Primary School in Newcastle are looking for an outstanding primary teacher to join our excellent staff team and take on the role of Deputy Headteacher. This is a rare and exciting opportunity to join our wonderful school and have a positive impact on its immediate and long term future.

The post will be a permanent appointment and is required for January 2023 or as soon as possible after that date.

At Ravenswood Primary School, we believe that the post of Deputy Headteacher should be filled by an outstanding teacher. Their key task will be to develop and improve teaching and learning across the school and it is therefore essential that they understand and can demonstrate consistently outstanding teaching themselves and have a proven track record of improving the teaching of others.

Our school is an exciting and thriving educational community, using both curricular and extra-curricular experiences to enhance our children’s love of learning and therefore we will be looking for a Deputy Headteacher who can play an active role in the life of the school and can celebrate this with all of our stakeholders.

We also believe that if our children are happy in school, then they stand the best chance of making excellent academic progress and so our Deputy Headteacher must enjoy working with children and will need to demonstrate a natural ability to engage with them and nurture their love of learning.

Ravenswood is a large, busy primary school, meaning that the Deputy Headteacher must be well organised and hard working and will need to be able to build strong and supportive working relationships with pupils, staff, governors and parents.
