What skills and experience we're looking for

Are you an experienced leader with ambition to realise success for our children?

This is a great opportunity for a clear thinking, values-driven, vision-inspired leader to embrace and lead change to transform the educational experiences of our young people, through continued development of effective systems and professional development.

Working within supportive structures and our Warrington family of schools, the successful applicant will have up-to-date senior leadership experience in leading SEND provision, particularly those with Social, Emotional and Mental Health Needs for the community that we are so privileged to serve.

What the school offers its staff

The new headteacher will need to be able to demonstrate a track record of developing successful cultures for learning, and an understanding how the potential for a different experience enables pupils life and learning outcomes to be championed. Consistency in delivering a commitment to inclusive attitudes and practices as well as dignity and support to staff with well-purposed professional development is important.

Once appointed, the successful candidate will be fully supported by the local authority and its SEND team (including a full induction) in driving forward all aspects of ongoing improvement in the school. The successful applicant will be subject to satisfactory pre-employment clearances including a Disclosure and Barring Service check (DBS).

If you are interested in this role, please make an appointment to either speak to the local authority adviser by phone or Microsoft Teams or to visit the school (we recognise some people would rather keep interest private). Please contact Lisa Adams on 01925 442987 or by email at ladams@warrington.gov.uk for a conversation with the adviser or to arrange a visit to the school.

Please visit the school website for a full application pack : https://woolstonbrookschool.co.uk/

All applications should be returned to WBC recruitment Team: recruitment@warrington.gov.uk by the closing date 6th March 2024, 9.00am.
