Job summary

We are advertising for a maternity leave cover for our current Deputy Headteacher. However, this is also an exciting opportunity for a leadership secondment for an existing Deputy in a smaller school or aspiring Assistant Headteacher. We need to maintain our leadership capacity across the school in the Deputy’s absence, so this may also be suitable for external consultants, LA school improvement inspectors, ex senior leaders, etc.

The last maternity cover we had 2 years ago went onto secure a fulltime position in a Havering school as Deputy Headteacher so this could be the stepping stone needed to secure a more permanent position if that is what you are looking for.

Ideally, we need someone 5 days a week; however, we are willing to be flexible for the right candidate. The role involves teaching responsibilities in Year 6 taking intervention groups, overseeing the literacy subject leaders and the online remote learning that has become most prevalent in the last year. They will also lead assessment across the school.
