Deputy Headteacher job summary

Odyssey Educational Trust is seeking to appoint a proven leader of learning who can demonstrate the impact of their leadership on pupils and staff and is passionate about teaching and learning. Being able to identify, support and develop talent is crucial to the succession planning of the Trust and forms an important part of the role. You will have proven experience of being able to motivate and lead staff and to show resilience and integrity in all aspects of your leadership. It is essential that you are a very strong teaching practitioner and have recent successful experience of teaching in Key Stage 2. You will have an in-depth understanding of the curriculum and of the current educational agenda and the challenges this may present.

Whilst we are seeking to appoint a proven leader with significant leadership experience, there is no blueprint of where and how that experience will have been gained. Appointing the right candidate, who is fully committed to our vision and values and will fit into our friendly team, is of greater importance than the particular job title or type of experience that candidates present.
