Building on existing excellence, this role provides a rewarding prospect of leading and influencing the EYFS provision. In return, we are committed to providing you with first class professional development opportunities to support you in this role.

What we're looking for in our Deputy Principal:

You will have a clear philosophy of primary education and understanding of how children learn. You will be able to demonstrate successful management experience, as well as knowledge of current educational practice and issues in EYFS. Demonstrating consistently high standards of principled and professional conduct, you will hold the skills, knowledge and experience to work collaboratively with the Principal to ensure the Academy provides an environment in which all staff and pupils can fulfil their potential. Showing an ability to work in partnership with senior leaders across the Trust, and those responsible for governance, you will also be committed to creating and maintaining effective partnerships with parents and the community.
