This is a fantastic opportunity to join the forward-looking and ambitious leadership team at Sharnbrook Academy.
We are seeking to appoint a dynamic individual with real commitment and drive, to join the Senior Leadership Team in their tireless pursuit of continual school improvement. Teamwork and communication are critical to the role: working closely with SLT; leading middle leaders, teaching and support staff on areas of focus; working with parents and outside agencies, etc. The Candidate should have a proven track record of raising standards and be able to demonstrate the impact of their current leadership role on school improvement. Our aim is to move beyond being a good school and to develop an outstanding provision for our students, and this deputy principal role will play an important part in this ambition.
The ideal candidate will have the opportunity to make a significant contribution to the strategic direction of the school, alongside the academy principal. We are looking for somebody who has a genuine commitment to students’ well-being and understands fully the difference that care, guidance and support can make to the lives and future of young people.
As deputy principal, you will be required to meet the general requirements of the post, and those of a class teacher, as specified in the School Teachers’ Pay and Conditions Document and Teachers’ Standards. In addition, you will be required to fulfil any reasonable expectations from the academy principal. The post will require you to work in partnership with the academy principal, governors, staff and students to ensure the continuous improvement and effective operation of the school.
