Job summary

We are looking for a dynamic individual to join Team EWS. This is an open role where the responsibility will be determined after the interview process - building on your strengths and developing you as a senior leader. You will be ready from the get-go; have strong leadership experience and a proven track record.

As a member of the senior leadership team, you will lead staff to enable all students to make maximum progress, and to develop as confident, well-educated and happy young people. You will be flexible and multi-skilled and able to take on any portfolio or area of responsibility. The leadership challenges and demands in a school mean that specific responsibilities have to change from time to time, and this role is one in which adaptability and creativity are paramount.

We are forward thinking and progressive and our staff and students strive to improve; learning is at the heart of everything we do. Our school is located across two sites, Roade and Deanshanger but operates as one school with many staff working across both sites – this role will be based on our North Campus in Roade; travel across sites will be required and flexibility is a must.

This role is key to the success of the school and we want an experienced leader with a positive attitude, who cares about making a difference to the outcomes for our students and can take others along with them. You will need to be a team player who can multitask effectively, motivate others and demonstrate a commitment to high standards.

The successful candidate will also:
● Have clarity of vision about improvement strategies
● Show vision, conviction and authority and lead by example
● Be very organised
● Have strong whole school leadership experience
● Have the desire to help build successful schools and demonstrate a commitment to ensuring that our school communities are effective, efficient and sustainable
● Have to meet the person specification and will be required to apply for a DBS disclosure.
Training and development opportunities will be offered. All staff are encouraged to study further, and the academy will actively support staff to obtain relevant further qualifications where possible.
