Contract type: Full Time
Salary: £43,000 and £50,000 per annum.
Contract term: Permanent

The Write Time is offering an outstanding individual the opportunity to join our small independent secondary school (alternative provision) in the role of Deputy Head to oversee the delivery of the alternative provision. Currently we are ofsted registered for a maximum of 15 students and provide both full-time and part-time education to pupils who are either permanently excluded from school, or who are at risk of permanent exclusion.

This is a fantastic role for an outstanding teacher looking to take his/her first step into a leadership position. If successful in this role, there may be opportunity to process into a full Head Teacher role to allow the Founder to continue to expand the organisation. It is the vision of The Write Time to open additional Alternative Provisions in London and potentially open a Free School within the next few years.

It is The Write Time’s belief that children will not achieve their learning potential when both social and emotional needs are not being met. As a result, we work very closely with other parties (local authorities, social services, referring schools, etc.) to provide an educational and social environment in which our students can flourish as young adults; emphasising not just statutory duties, but giving equal weight to prevention and early intervention to address social, emotional and behavioural difficulties.

Do you have what it takes to join The Write Time and help shape the future of some of London’s most hard to reach young people?

In order to apply for this, post you will need to meet all essential criteria of the personal specification.
