Deputy Headteacher (Students)

We are looking for a leader with vast experience to become our new Deputy Headteacher (students) from August 2020.  This involves leadership of Inclusion, SEND, Pastoral (Behaviour and Attendance) and Safeguarding where you will lead with tenacity, strength and compassion.  You will be part of our strong and experienced, can-do Leadership Team and will work in a school where we can see the difference we make to our students’ lives and life chances. This post has arisen due to the forthcoming retirement of our Inclusion Leader.  

We are looking for a leader who embodies our mission that every child benefits fully from the transformative power of education, regardless of their background.  We want a Deputy Headteacher who will see the potential in our students, including our vulnerable and harder to reach students and be energised by the challenge of realising that potential.

We are a successful school whose students make good progress, despite many challenges.  We want a Deputy Headteacher who will thrive in our environment and who is driven to raise standards, expectations, achievement and attainment.  You will be resilient, values driven and reflective and will be determined to help us to develop our nurturing, ambitious and rigorous culture of success.  You will be well used to going the extra mile, and believe in recognising when others have.  You will be skilled at achieving the highest of standards of teaching, learning and behaviour, both yourself and across groups of staff and will have a track record of developing leadership in others.  You will have both the desire and experience to ensure that our focus is on teaching and learning and will have a vision of how to help our students to thrive under the new curriculum.

We are offering prospective candidates an opportunity to visit our school prior to making an application on 13th January 2-3pm, 15th January 4-5pm or 17th January 9-10am. Please contact Mandy Smith, Headteacher’s PA, on 0116 2344480, if you would like to book into one of these slots.
