Buttershaw Business & Enterprise College is an improving school. We are an ambitious, community-focused academy of just over 1400 students serving an area of social deprivation on the southern edge of Bradford and seven miles from Leeds. BBEC is popular locally and is rapidly becoming the school of choice for the community of Buttershaw; for the last three years we have been over-subscribed in Year 7.
The school has undergone change over recent years; these changes have resulted in greater success for our students. We are on a trajectory of rapid improvement. We believe students’ education is not a dress rehearsal; they only get one chance and it is important that our school provides a safe, happy environment where our young people feel valued and can learn and fulfil their potential. At BBEC we understand the importance of great teaching and our students being successful academically, but as well as this we offer fantastic opportunities for children to develop skills and interests beyond the classroom. We believe this helps students have a fully rounded, exciting learning experience so that they can thrive and be prepared for adult life.
We are a truly comprehensive school and we welcome all children. We have a fantastic mix of students with different skills and talents. The breadth of our curriculum is designed to include a range of academic and innovative courses for all abilities, from the university bound to those with additional learning needs. We are truly proud of our inclusive approach and our commitment to see every child reach his or her potential. We expect all staff to work hard to ensure that we fulfil this aim.
At BBEC, we recognise that our staff are our biggest asset. We believe that our children deserve only the best quality staff so recruit carefully and invest in training to ensure continues improvement and an excellent quality of education.
We are looking for an experienced senior leader who:
- has successful experience of leading whole school improvement initiatives preferably related to behaviour
- has successful experience of working collaboratively
- has a passion for education and a deep-felt desire to make a difference for young people.
If you have the vision and desire to make a difference to our wonderful young people we would like to hear from you. Visits to the school are encouraged and can be arranged by contacting Anna Krywyszyn on 01274 676285, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Applications must be received by the closing date of 9am on Monday 30 March 2020. Interviews to be held w/c 30 March 2020.
