Oaktree School is a maintained special needs school for students with a range of needs varying from MLD to SLD. We are seeking to appoint a new dynamic and inspirational Head teacher from September 2020 due to the retirement of our current Head. We are situated on a leafy site in Enfield. Our new Head teacher will have the exciting opportunity to lead the school through a period of change that will include a comprehensive expansion programme.
We currently take pupils aged 7 to 19 years old. The school has excellent facilities including a Therapy Room, Food Technology, Art Room, Dance Studio and a state of the art Sensory Room. We have a large 6th form consisting of 3 classes, we aim to offer our young adults opportunities for personal development and independent skills preparing them for transition into adulthood.
At Oaktree, we realise that we have an essential role to play in shaping the lives of young people in our care. We aim for our students to leave happy and confident, with the talents and potential to go on to lead fulfilling and independent lives where possible.
We offer the highest quality education delivered by our team of dedicated staff, using quality resources in a safe and welcoming environment, supported by a wide range of specialists. Please take the time to look at our website at www.oaktree.enfield.sch.uk where you will see what a great School Oaktree is and where you will be able to download the school prospectus.
We are looking to appoint an enthusiastic Head Teacher who can lead us through future challenges brought by our desire to further improve the opportunities and outcomes for our pupils and to successfully manage plans for an expansion programme in 2021 which is currently under consideration. As a consequence experience of leading an expansion programme would be an advantage, although not essential. We welcome applications from aspiring and current Head teachers currently in a mainstream or special needs setting.
If you would like to visit our school please contact Brenda Kershaw our SBM on 02084403100 who would be delighted to welcome you and show you around our fantastic school.
