Deputy Headteacher  

Salary: L12 – 16, £51,639 – £57,077 

Location: Oakwood Primary Academy  

Our academy is looking for an inspirational Deputy Headteacher who is looking to consolidate their leadership experience prior to moving in to a Headteacher role in the next few years.  Oakwood Primary Academy is a great place to learn and work. It is situated close to Leeds city centre and is one of eleven schools currently in the Co-op Academies Trust (including four other primary schools in Leeds) which is sponsored by The Co-op, the largest mutual business in the country.  As an expanding Trust with a strong commitment to professional development we are ideally placed to offer someone who already has some experience in a leadership role, and aspirations to become a Headteacher, the opportunity to grow and develop their career with us. The vacancy has arisen because the previous post-holder has moved on to their first headship.  

If you share our belief that we must demonstrate the highest standards if our children are to achieve their best, then we would love to hear from you. We are looking for a Deputy Headteacher who is truly committed to every child and determined to make a positive difference. Our academies adhere to co-operative values and principles and we listen to the views of children, parents and staff.  Oakwood has a stable, thriving team with long-serving members of staff in key roles. This is an excellent opportunity to prepare for your step into headship.  

You will receive national terms and conditions of service and will also benefit from many of The Co-op’s employee benefits, as well as a personalised development plan and mentoring from an experienced Headteacher. We are also willing to help with relocation costs for the right candidate.  We would be delighted to show prospective candidates round our academy prior to them making an application - just call the academy on 0113 2402526 or email the Headteacher directly ( to arrange a convenient time.   

If you are interested in joining us, please email for an application form and return your completed form via email to her. Be open and honest in your application, telling us why you are perfect for this role.  Co-op Academies Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the wellbeing of all children, and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.  

Closing date: Monday 5th March at 12 noon
