Post: Deputy Headteacher

Commencing: April 2020

Salary: L6 - L11   £45,213 - £51,234

Currently rated as Good by Ofsted (April 2018), our school is comprised of a mix of old Victorian and new buildings, with a dedicated wildlife area within the school grounds and access to an offsite facility.  Our local area has a rich historical heritage and this is a key aspect for which we have been awarded national accreditation as a ‘Heritage School’.  A very popular school, we are over-subscribed and working on plans to manage the increasing demand for places.

Situated in the market town of Northallerton, we are a warm, happy school where we value our community and have an ethos of kindness and support for each other, placing a high premium on creating a learning environment in which children thrive in a ‘vibrant, exciting and happy school’ with a ‘friendly feel’.

Working closely with the Headteacher, you will promote high expectations across all areas of the curriculum, in regards to pupils’ attainment and progress, behaviour, attitudes to learning; supporting our pupil’s wellbeing and supporting families; providing an atmosphere in which all pupils can learn, play and grow and showing support to each other.

To succeed, you must be an outstanding classroom practitioner with proven leadership experience and the ability to motivate and inspire.  Approachable and determined, you must be able to evidence success in supporting and developing colleagues; leading change for improvement and, above all, maximising pupil achievement.

There is clearly much potential and with highly committed, experienced, and loyal staff, strong relationships with parents and carers and a supportive LA and governing body, there is much to look forward to.

In return, we can offer you strong support and the opportunity for your continued professional development.
