For ambitious, motivated and aspiring leaders, a new deputy headship is available at this pioneering school, with an established strong reputation, where commitment and our Catholic ethos underpin ongoing improvement. As a Teaching school, coupled with the advantages of challenge and opportunity presented by the current expansion from 6 to 8-form entry, we offer an excellent platform for you to grow your leadership career, with potential to scope out the new remits of this role.
As an established Catholic school, the atmosphere in All Saints offers a calm, purposeful learning environment, creating a unique oasis in Dagenham, where student attendance is high and the school oversubscribed. Recently extended facilities are excellent, strategic steps are already being taken to address the ever changing demands of the curriculum, but governors recognise further work is required to implement ongoing progress.
The advantages on offer at All Saints include:
· Opportunity to help shape the leadership and your areas of responsibility
· Planned, rising student numbers, enhancing curriculum developmental opportunities
· Recent refurbishments provide excellent, modern facilities to enhance curriculum delivery
· Sound balanced budget, with capacity to support future innovation and progress
· Designated safeguarding lead
· Pupil Wellbeing
· Line manager for Year Leaders and Heads of Department
The Governors and Head seek to appoint a practising Catholic, who will appreciate and protect the ethos, but with the drive to bring about school improvement in a collaborative way.
The successful candidates will need to be adaptable communicators, who work effectively and inclusively with people, able to build and motivate teams, inspire loyalty, and whose leadership style embraces and builds upon our All Saints traditions of excellence.
All Saints Catholic School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
