What skills and experience we're looking for

We are seeking to appoint a dynamic, passionate and highly committed Deputy Headteacher to work with the Headteacher to oversee and provide strategic leadership of all aspects of the curriculum, teaching and learning, and raising achievement.

This is a new role which has been created to meet the needs of a school that has grown rapidly over the past 5 years, and is an exciting opportunity to join a strong and committed leadership team to work alongside a highly supportive governing body, and an incredible group of staff who will always go the extra mile for our students.

We are looking for someone to join the team who is a role model for excellent teaching, who can inspire and motivate both staff and students to achieve their best possible outcomes, who can think and plan strategically, with both vision and attention to detail, and who has proven senior leadership experience and a track record of success.

If you have all of these qualities, are aligned with our values, and are absolutely committed to overcoming the barriers of educational disadvantage, then we want to hear from you.

Churchill Community College is a dynamic, exciting place to work with many opportunities available for staff and students. Churchill was inspected by Ofsted in 2019 as a ‘good’ school; previously the school had been judged ‘outstanding’, and whilst the judgement of ‘good’ was very fair we have the aspiration of ‘excellence in all we do’ and need the successful applicant to embrace this philosophy. Churchill is very much a community school, and whilst the community we serve is enormously proud and supportive of the school, a significant proportion of our students come from low-income or deprived households, with more than 38% currently receiving Free School Meals, and 45% eligible for the Pupil Premium. Even before Ofsted began emphasising the importance of long-term learning and cultural capital we had begun the process of reviewing and developing our Key Stage 3 curriculum in order to put a greater emphasis on them, something you will see reflected in our 2019 Ofsted report. However, cultural and curricular changes take time to work through the system, and our academic outcomes saw a decline in 2018 and 2019 following the introduction of the reformed 9-1 GCSEs. We were confidently expecting to see this trend begin to be reversed in 2020 had students sat their exams, however this did not happen and the school and community were subsequently heavily impacted by Covid. We also host the Northumbria Art, Craft and Design Partnership ITT programme, and associate lead school for the North East Partnership PE SCITT, which remains one of only a handful of ITT providers to be rated outstanding in every area under the new Ofsted framework. This work is all evidence of our continuing commitment to high quality professional development for those who work in education.
