Following the retirement of our Headteacher we are looking for a warm, engaging and inspirational leader who will further develop our school and its wider network of collaborations.
This is a fantastic opportunity for an energetic and passionate Headteacher to be part of a wonderful school that has vision, connection and ambition. We believe strongly that our job is to ensure that everyone, both pupils and adults, are constantly learning. Our motto is “learning together” with choice and opportunity.
It is this vision that has seen us gain School Direct Lead School status, be a lead in the Whitley Excellence Cluster, support the founding of a charity for our community-Aspire2, and create essential links to numerous art, sports and learning organisations both in our local area and further afield.
At Geoffrey Field Junior, we have outstanding teachers and support staff who care deeply about our pupils and their families. They are always willing to go above and beyond, as evidenced by our multitude of after-school and extra-curricular activities, and we want a Headteacher who can lead and inspire pupils, parents and staff.
We welcome applications from existing or aspiring Headteachers who feel they can take on this considerable mantle and lead us boldly forward.
We are looking for someone who...
- is prepared to be a visible presence in the wider school community: energetic, open and approachable.
- has an ambitious vision for driving academic attainment, but who strongly cares about the personal development of each and every child.
- is a leader who can nurture and build our talented teaching and support staff.
- is passionate about technology in education, keeping Geoffrey Field at the forefront of modern educational practice.
If you are this talented and ambitious person, you will find us:
Positive: motivated pupils who support each other and who love their school.
Collaborative: a forerunner in numerous collaborations across the borough and wider afield; pupils, staff and governors are always interested in learning and improving.
Well-supported: a committed and knowledgeable senior leadership team, strong connections with parents and an active governing body.
A growing school: we have recently had additional classrooms built and numbers of pupils are increasing.
Highly-regarded: Ofsted awarded us a ‘Good’ rating, and the number of families applying is on the increase.
We warmly invite you to visit the school. Please call 0118 937 5475 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange this.
Please do not send a CV, as for the purposes of Equal Opportunities we can only accept Reading Borough Council application forms.
Closing date: 23 March 2017
Interviews: 30 and 31 March 2017
The school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
An enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service will be sought from the successful candidate.
