We wish to appoint an inspirational leader to join our school as Head of Primary from April 2019.
As Head of Primary you will have responsibility for the leadership and management of our primary phase, working closely with the Headteacher in shaping our strategic vision. You will be an integral member of the school’s Headship Team and supported in your role by our talented and enthusiastic primary team.
The successful candidate will have established a track record of securing the best possible learning outcomes (with respect to attainment and progress) of all learners, be that at EYFS, KS1 or KS2. You will be an outstanding classroom practitioner with the proven ability to lead and influence others to achieve exceptional performance, holding them accountable to the highest expectations with respect to their own practice and the learning of the children in their care.
Prendergast Vale School is a small all-through school providing high quality education from nursery to Year 11 that aims to transform the lives of all the children who attend the school. By keeping the school small, we have created a community of pupils and teachers where no pupil is left behind, which has enabled us to create an environment in which pupils want to learn, achieve and behave well.
This is an exciting time to join our school following our ‘Good’ judgement Ofsted in February 2018. The successful candidate will be part of a transformative staff team committed to outstanding provision and outcomes for all students. The school benefits from being part of the Leathersellers’ Federation of Schools.
Being part of a successful Federation of Schools, located in easy travelling distance of each other, enables the schools to support each other and share best practice and resources. It also enables the Federation to offer staff the opportunity to develop their career as we are committed to developing and promoting from within wherever possible.
We offer a comprehensive and supportive induction programme for all new staff. You will also have access to a rich and varied CPD programme within the school and across the Federation.
Visits to the school are welcome, please contact Tara McGoldrick, PA to Headteacher via email T.McGoldrick@prendergast-vale.com or telephone 020 8297 3540 ext: 613001 to arrange.
