We are looking to appoint a permanent, full-time member of staff as Assistant Headteacher with responsibility for the wellbeing of learners across the Academy and positively impacting on their progress and attainment.

Applications are welcome from teachers whose practice is outstanding and who have experience both of leadership and class teaching across the Primary Key Stages, preferably, within a variety of settings.

The successful candidate will have very high expectations for pupil behaviour, learning and achievement.  They will ensure that children of all abilities, throughout the Academy, have the opportunity to reach their potential through an inclusive programme of support.

We should like this teacher to be ambitious both for our Academy and for themselves, bringing fresh ideas and objectivity, thus contributing to the further success of our Academy's vision.  In turn, this teacher will be fully supported in their career path.
