What skills and experience we're looking for

We are looking to appoint an energetic and committed professional, with successful middle and senior leadership experience, to the role of Deputy Headteacher: Curriculum and Assessment.

The successful candidate will be an outstanding classroom practitioner who has already had proven success as a Middle and Senior leader. They will have the ability to lead a whole staff focus on precise and high impact application of the school curriculum and assessment at classroom level. They will be committed to achieving outstanding results for all students irrespective of ability and will be enthused by the prospect of further refining learning culture to be consistently engaging and aspirational.

The Deputy Headteacher must offer outstanding leadership and management within the organisation of the curriculum (including the timetable, options processes and time allocation) but also specific subject delivery. They will work closely with the Headteacher and subject leads to ensure the curriculum & assessment principles are coherently aligned at subject level, well understood by staff and precisely inform the teaching and learning of pupils. They will have effective communication with students, parents, colleagues and outside agencies and will set high standards for pupils in all aspects of school life supporting colleagues to maintain these.
