Do you want to work in one of the happiest schools in England?
Beckfoot Heaton Primary School & Nursery are seeking to appoint a Deputy Headteacher from September 2018 (or sooner if possible).
Our school is part of the Beckfoot Trust, which has a vision to create a cluster of remarkable schools, all within the Bradford district. Our 9 schools are all comprehensive and inclusive in character and cross mainstream secondary, primary and special sectors. The Trust is already having significant impact. We are excited about the potential of a school led model to transform learning environments across our group of schools so that all of our young people and staff will flourish.
Beckfoot Heaton, runners up in the “National Happiest School Award”, is a 2-11 primary school with approximately 800 pupils on roll. Situated on the outskirts of Bradford, the school is well regarded locally and is rapidly “growing to be great”. Aspiration is high and children are excited about the futures that they can have!
This is a unique opportunity for the right candidate.
Taking a significant role in the leadership of the school, together with the support and development opportunities afforded by a Trust who cherish staff, will ensure a richly rewarding role for the successful applicant. In return, we want an outward looking leader who can play a pivotal part in helping Beckfoot Heaton achieve great things, working in partnership with other leaders across the Trust to help us all to progress together.
The role will attract a candidate with senior leadership success or an ambitious, middle leader looking to take on their next challenge. The new deputy will fully grasp what it means to lead in a school within a Multi Academy Trust and be someone with the talent, energy and determination to make a profound, lasting and positive difference to our pupils, staff and wider community.
Critically we want to appoint someone who wants to be shaped into a great leader, is a team player and is in it for the long term.
We hope the pack will give you further information, a clear picture of the journey we are on and the eagerness to apply.
Visits to the school and Trust are warmly welcomed. Please contact Hayley Budge via email to arrange an appointment or for any further information. firstname.lastname@example.org
