The Whitefriars Heathland Federation is a multi-academy trust comprising of two outstanding schools, Heathland and Whitefriars School in Harrow. Heathland School is a 3-11 primary school judged to be outstanding by Ofsted 2010 and 2014. Whitefriars is an expanding through school catering for children from the age of 3 – 18 and received its outstanding judgement from Ofsted in May 2018.
Our Federation of two schools is underpinned by a Values based ethos that helps everyone work together cooperatively and with mutual respect. We promote harmony through dialogue and reflection. From the early years to the secondary stages of education we offer an active curriculum that is designed to engage and excite all our pupils. We take an individualised ‘next steps’ approach on the journey to master of English, reading and mathematics skills. Our pupils make rapid progress in an environment of care where expectations are high, values are positive, forgiveness is abundant and children are treasured. We absolutely believe that anyone can learn anything and the growth mind set underpins everything we do.
We are looking for a Deputy DSL will share responsibility for safeguarding and child protection across the school. They will take part in strategy discussions and inter-agency meetings, and contribute to the assessment of children. They will advise and support other members of staff on child welfare and child protection matters, and liaise with relevant agencies such as the local authority and police.
We reserve the right to interview prior to the closing date and thus early applications are encouraged.
The Heathland Whitefriars Federation is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people, and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. You will be subject to an Enhanced DBS check
