Job summary

Osprey Learning Trust is seeking to appoint a Deputy Headteacher for a two-term secondment, working at Teignmouth Community School, Exeter Road.

With the current Deputy Head going on maternity leave, this is an exciting opportunity for a senior leader to gain experience and make a difference at an important time. The school is on a significant improvement journey and awaiting an Ofsted visit. The successful candidate will be experienced and capable of picking up a broad portfolio, adapting flexibly to support the Headteacher and staff in the school’s clear vision and way forward. Some of the responsibilities will be finalised with the appointment but there is a need to support the finalisation of the key stage 4 options process and timetable construction, as well as to drive the raising achievement plan for Year 11 and to continue the development of teaching and learning across the curriculum. All of the senior team support the pastoral system and work to secure good behaviour and a strong, positive ethos.

The post is available from 1st January 2022 but the successful candidate could delay starting until after the February half term if they cannot be released at this date.
