Leaders leave no stone unturned in their drive to improve the outcomes and well-being of every child in Seven Kings. Their high aspirations for all pupils and staff, coupled with an unwavering focus on sustained improvement, are at the heart of the school’s success. Consequently, the quality of education provided is outstanding. Ofsted September 2018

This is a great opportunity for an experienced, influential and dynamic leader who puts children at the centre of all they do.

As an all through school we strategically plan to ensure our motto – Friendship Excellence Opportunity - pervades the whole school and the strategic leadership of learning and teaching and pastoral care is central to our ethos.

This is a pivotal role in our school; as Deputy Head of Primary you will have a strong vision for the school, a commitment to our young people and their development as learners and leaders within our aspirational community.  You will have a strong background in learning and teaching with experience of raising standards through an exciting and effective curriculum and outstanding quality first teaching.  You will also have a strong background in pastoral care and experience of working with outside agencies in ensuring the very best outcomes for all our students.  You will line manage the SENDCO

The successful candidate will lead on the Primary Campus in our all through school; and as such this is an exciting career choice.  Seven Kings has a partnership of 22 schools.  We believe outstanding schools should be outward facing, learning from others and sharing practice; it is a challenging and exciting place to learn and grow as an individual and leader with a national reputation for innovation.  You will play a key role in shaping and leading our alliance.

Our students have a love for learning and a curiosity about the world around them.  Our families want the best for their children.  Your inspiring leadership will be central to achieving this.

We very much look forward to meeting you.
