We wish to appoint an inspirational Head of School, to work alongside the newly appointed Executive Headteacher in a new leadership structure. This is an exciting time to join the ODST family of schools as we continue to provide new and innovative ways of working to ensure the very best outcomes for all our children.
From September ‘21, we will begin our partnership with St Mary’s Infants School, with whom we have benefitted from a close informal relationship for many years. The leadership team, governors and ODST recognise that sustained success comes from being outward looking and building highly effective partnerships to promote school to school support.
As Head of School you will demonstrate outstanding leadership and strong interpersonal skills to inspire, motivate and empower colleagues to continuously improve our inclusive school. You will have responsibility for the daily leadership and management, working closely with the Executive Headteacher in shaping our strategic vision. You will understand fully how to build positive and effective relationships with all stakeholders; continuing to build a culture of trust and confidence in your ability to lead and manage with integrity and common sense.
Our Trust places a strong emphasis on the well-being of all staff and the Head of School is no exception. In addition to a bespoke CPD programme both to ensure effective induction and on-going professional development, we will support you to ensure an appropriate work life balance.
This is a key appointment for us and we are fully committed to finding the right person. Whether you are an experienced Head of School looking for a new challenge or a Senior Leader wishing to make the next step towards Headship, we encourage you to visit the school. This can be arranged through contacting the Interim Head of School, Paul Atkins, on 01993 702392. If you wish to have an informal conversation about this post please do contact our Executive Headteacher Charlie Barwell. Cbarwell.firstname.lastname@example.org
