Deputy Headteacher vacancy

The full advertisement can be found on the Hampshire Vacancies Website via the following link

After 12 (happy and successful) years at Heatherside, our Deputy will be retiring in July and so we are seeking to appoint a new senior leader to our team. We are looking for an enthusiastic and forward thinking teacher with a proven record of achieving high standards to help lead our school and staff in our continued commitment to excellence and enjoyment for all our children.

We are a highly successful school but are always seeking new ways to improve and develop further; we never do things just because we always have! Collaboratively, we work hard to achieve the very best outcomes for the children in all aspects of their learning and set high expectations for ourselves. However, we also have a lot of fun along the way and Heatherside is genuinely a happy, caring and positive place to work.

This is a non-class based role although does include regular weekly teaching commitments as we feel that this is an essential aspect of the Deputy’s role. You will also lead one of our year groups and support those staff and children specifically. We can offer you dedicated leadership time in your own office, high quality professional development, supportive parents and governors and absolutely fantastic children along with a strong emphasis on staff wellbeing and teamwork. Our school is very well resourced, with lots of outdoor space and facilities to support teaching and learning. We share a site with our Infant partners, which means there are many opportunities for us to work together.

If you are looking for an opportunity to drive curriculum innovation, lead and support colleagues and have a lasting and significant impact on what we can achieve at Heatherside, then we want to hear from you. Do you have a genuine passion for teaching, thrive on a challenge, value the importance of teamwork and leading by example and are eager to progress in your career? If so, this will be your perfect job!

Visits to the school are actively encouraged where possible as we would love to show you our school in action; our Admin Team will be happy to arrange this. Further details, including salary, closing dates, Job Description and Person Specification are available via the main advertisement or our school Office.
