Are you an excellent teaching professional with experience of working collaboratively with teams of teachers to raise standards for all students? Are you looking for the opportunity to develop your leadership skills at one of the most dynamic and successful British international schools worldwide?

The British School in the Netherlands (BSN) is now seeking an experienced Senior Leader or a Deputy Headteacher of a smaller school, to join our Junior School Vlaskamp (JSV) campus as a member of its Teaching and Learning Senior Team. This is a non-class based role. 

The Post

You are an excellent practitioner with a track record of outstanding teaching across the Primary age range including Early years. You have the ability to inspire and motivate staff through leading practice in classrooms and by facilitating impactful professional learning opportunities. You have experience of developing the capacity and capability of other leaders so that they have the skills to lead their own teams and improve the practice across their year groups / subject.

You will work in partnership with staff within and across the campus to enhance the curriculum, assessment and pedagogy such that all students access a challenging, stimulating and contextually rich learning experience. This will involve leading practice to ensure all students are making progress and teaching quality is of the highest standard. Specific expertise in supporting teachers with the teaching of English (oracy, reading and writing) and the Maths Mastery approach, is essential for this post.

You will work collaboratively with middle leaders across the campus, to build their capacity and capability such that they feel empowered to lead teaching and learning within their year group / subject.

You will work in partnership with staff across the three Junior and two Senior School campuses on specific cross school responsibilities, to help to build a 3-11 learning continuum and one school ‘narrative’.

You will have specific responsibility for ensuring that the staffing arrangements are set up for each day and that cover arrangements are managed in such a way that there is minimum disruption to student learning. This is an operational element of the role which has a significant impact on the successful smooth running of the daily provision.
