Job vacancy – Primary Phase leader (Upper or lower primary) for Sept 2018

Due to relocation, we are now looking for an experienced, excellent classroom practitioner to join the team at St Christopher’s in September 2018. The phase leader will take responsibility as a ‘Leader of Teaching and learning’ in either upper school (Y4-6) or lower school (Y1-3) (depending on strengths and previous experience). The successful candidate will be a member of the Senior Leadership Team with regular release time from their class teacher responsibilities, in order to continue the work of improving standards in this school and build on the strengths that Ofsted have identified at St Christopher’s: “The quality of teaching is good and improving. This is because of regular monitoring by leaders and insightful feedback about strengths and areas to improve. In addition experienced teachers provide good role models and support for less experienced colleagues. New staff say they feel highly valued and have been welcomed warmly as they begin their teaching career.”

We offer our phase leaders:

  • Dedicated PPA and Leadership release time each week
  • A full programme of external and internal CPD (working towards NPQML or equivalent if desired)
  • Confident, happy and motivated children to teach
  • Peer support from leaders in the other 30+ schools in our multi-academy trust (ODST)

Visits to the school are welcome and encouraged. Our Headteacher, Sheenagh Broadbent, would be delighted to meet with prospective candidates and discuss the role with you, as well as show you around our lovely school. Please contact the school office to arrange a convenient time.

Applications should be received by midday on Friday 20th April 2018. Please use the ODST application form. CVs will not be accepted.

Interviews will be held on Tuesday 1st May 2018.
