Job summary

Ebor Academy Filey
Post: Deputy Headteacher (Achievement and Standards)
Number on Roll: 430
Commencing: January 2022 start ideally
Salary: L14 – L18 (Access if needed to a relocation package of up to £8,000 available)

If you are a colleague who is ambitious, inspirational and committed to excellence then this appointment will present you with a unique opportunity.

Here at Ebor Academy Filey (11-16) we are continuing on our transformational journey and we would love to hear from you if you are seeking your first Deputy Headship, or your next leadership role!

Despite recent challenges, our school has many strengths, and you would be joining a school with talented colleagues and students, and a staff body that show Kindness, Respect, Integrity and Teamwork in their work. The communities we serve around the Filey and wider Coastal area deserve and need our school to play a leading role in terms of teaching, learning, progress and outcomes.

Ofsted last visited us in May 2018 where we were graded ‘Requires Improvement’ and moved us out of the ‘Inadequate’ category. Since then through the support of our Trust and working with our fellow coastal schools we have continued to improve across all areas – but we know we have more to do to ensure our school is a beacon of excellence. Over the last three years our school has been fully staffed by subject expects and we have welcomed a number of experienced colleagues who have relocated to take up their new posts.

Through support brokered by our Trust for 2021/2022 we are working closely under an NLE agreement with Coast and Vale Learning Trust – a growing local trust of 2 Secondary schools (Scalby School and Lady Lumley’ School) and 2 primary schools (Newby & Scalby Primary and Friarage Primary). This will allow us to learn and collaborate with other coastal schools as our area is designated a DFE Opportunity Area.

Our Opportunity
We are looking to appoint either an aspiring leader or existing senior leader to join us as our sole Deputy Headteacher to lead improvements in Curriculum and Assessment and improvement in Achievement and Standards ideally from January 2021.

You will already be an excellent teacher within your specialism, and have some leadership experience and be able to show impact around achievement and standards within your current school. With tailored support from our Headteacher, Ebor Academy Trust and through our NLE arrangement we will further develop you and give you the skills, encouragement and experience within the profession to excel as a Deputy Headteacher – and beyond.

You will need resilience, emotional intelligence as well as the ability to work with and take colleagues with you. You will lead on Assessment, Achievement and Standards, and help support our Headteacher with all elements of strategic leadership. Coaching and mentoring will be in your DNA as a colleague as you help make Ebor Academy Filey a beacon of excellence across North Yorkshire.

We can offer you:

• Significant levels of support from both Ebor Academy Trust, Coast and Vale Learning Trust and a staff team who are experienced, committed and passionate about our school.
• Opportunities and training (we will also learn from you!)to ensure teaching and learning and our school improvement continues to be rapid and sustainable.
• Relocation assistance and competitive remuneration package
• A commitment from the Trust Board to keep the pay range under review to ensure high performance can be fully rewarded.

Join our school as a Leader and make a real difference to our students, staff and your career in an area that offers so much! To arrange an informal call with Michael McCluskie (NLE – Coast and Vale Learning Trust) or a school visit to meet Michael and our Headteacher (Terry Cartmail) please contact James on the details below.
