About the School - Deputy Head Teacher
Located in Hertfordshire, this two-form entry Primary School is looking to appoint a new Deputy Head Teacher to join its senior leadership team and help move the school on to the next stage of its development. The school has recently been given a 'Requires Improvement' status at its most recent Ofsted which was expected by the new head teacher after the school had been through a period of falling attainment. This falling attainment can be attributed to a drop-in teaching standards, a fall in behaviour expectations and poor attendance. The new head has highlighted clear areas for the school to focus its efforts on and the first part of this plan is to bring in a deputy head who will focus on improving teaching & learning across the school. This school has loads of potential and with the right team in place should improve quickly so someone looking to add value will see this as an exciting proposition!
About the Role - Deputy Head - Haringey, North London
This Deputy Head role is of crucial importance to the school and therefore a committed senior leader with good experience and a proven track record of implementing change is what is required. This post is non-class based although all senior leaders at the school will teach one lesson of literacy and one numeracy on a weekly basis. They are also required to model good lessons for current teachers as well as supporting newly qualified teachers so therefore the ability to teach to a high level is a must. The ability to manage staff in an effective manor will be crucial to the success of this post.
