Job summary

Job Title: Principal, The Hyde School, London.

The Hyde Primary School is an innovative two form entry, co-educational primary school with a large Nursery. The school caters for just over 460 children and it serves a socially and ethnically diverse population.

In September 2013 after the school was judged to be in special measures, it joined The Elliot Foundation Academies Trust as a sponsored academy. By May 2015 the school had been judged as outstanding due to the inspirational leadership of the Principal and her amazing leadership team.

The Trust is looking to appoint a Principal to:

Provide strong and decisive leadership which enables all staff to flourish in an environment of support and encouragement
Plan strategically to deliver a vision which leads to the highest standards and outcomes for all pupils
Continue to develop the capacity of all leaders and hold them to account for securing the highest standards
Lead on the Trust’s apprenticeship provision
Contribute to the support of other TEFAT schools
Nurture the families within The Hyde community
Embrace the collaborative nature of the TEFAT organisation

Currently a Headteacher or an outstanding Deputy with substantial experience of school leadership gained in a primary school, you are an inspirational leader with a strong commitment to high standards in all aspects of school and community life. You combine a vision and energy for children’s education with the focus and drive needed for whole school management. You have the ambition and dynamism to continually raise the bar and set demanding new challenges as well as the inspirational communication and leadership skills to elicit the commitment of staff, students and the community as a whole.

In return for your energy, integrity and enthusiasm, we offer you the opportunity to lead a school that is full of outstanding teachers and a highly supportive academy sponsor with an excellent track record in school improvement. This is an opportunity to have an impact on a school that is already outstanding, but is looking for new ways to make a real contribution to the life chances of an amazing group of children who are all keen to learn and for whom educational opportunity is crucial.

Safeguarding Children and Young People:
The Elliot Foundation Academies Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. All staff and volunteers are therefore expected to behave in such a way that supports this commitment. Appointment to this post will be subject to the appropriate satisfactory pre-employment checks including a Barred List check, Disclosure and Barring Service check and references.
