Start date January 2023, but an earlier start could be negotiated for the right candidate.

We use the Read, Write Inc. phonics (RI) program from a child’s first term in reception. We believe that children’s growth as a reader is key to helping them fully access learning into KS2 and beyond. With this in mind our ambitious aim is for all children to have completed the RWI program in year 2.

We build on this strong start to reading by working in partnership with Hackney Learning Trust to deliver Daily Supported Reader for all pupils in KS1 and Destination Reader in KS2 as we believe it is vital that our children are instilled with a passion for reading and a strong desire to read for pleasure.

We are seeking to appoint an energetic, innovative leader to join our friendly and forward-thinking team. This role provides the opportunity for the successful candidate to further develop their leadership skills and benefit from high quality professional development both in school and provided by Aurora Academies Trust. The role of Deputy Headteacher is to play a key role in the senior leadership team of the school. The post holder will deputise for the Headteacher when necessary. Proactively contribute to the excellent leadership team at Glenleigh Park Primary Academy and contribute to the high educational standards at Glenleigh Park Primary Academy.

You will be a role model in leading the teaching team at Glenleigh Park Primary Academy to ensure all our pupils achieve their full potential by having responsibility for creating a learning culture, which enables pupils to become effective, enthusiastic and independent, life-long learners. The role involves setting high expectations for teaching and learning, creating a culture that ensures effective teaching and learning and to evaluate the effectiveness of the teaching and learning on pupil outcomes.

Glenleigh Park is a school that can offer exceptional professional development opportunities, high levels of support and the chance to make a real difference to pupils’ outcomes. We work closely with other schools in our Trust and there are several opportunities to share ideas and learn from each other.

This is an exciting opportunity and the ideal next step in the career of an ambitious school leader. The successful candidate will be a key part of a great staff team and their professional judgement and expertise will be highly valued.
