Norwich Road School

Assistant Headteacher with Responsibility for EYFS & KS1

L2-6. April 2013

We’ve a missing piece in our jigsaw? Are you the one to complete us? As a large, urban primary school, (approx. 440 incl nursery) with a high proportion of children with EAL (approx. 45%) we are looking for a dynamic, knowledgeable, good or outstanding person, with expertise in EYFS and KS1 to help move our already improving school to the next level. A new Head was appointed in September 2011 and the school was given a Notice to Improve in November 2011. Ofsted said at our monitoring visit in May 2012: ‘…the school is making satisfactory progress in addressing the issues for improvement and in raising the pupils’ achievement.’

A substantive Deputy Head was appointed in September 2012 (a brand new post to the school) and our management team has recently been extended. If you are looking for a senior leadership post and you have good experience of leading and managing EYFS and KS1 and a whole school responsibility and you can demonstrate good progress; if you are passionate about making a difference to children’s lives and giving them the best start possible, you could be the jigsaw piece were looking for!

You will be responsible for:

• EYFS and KS1 and overseeing the good progress of children’s learning as well as their pastoral care in addition to transition to both KS1 and KS2.

• A whole school focus (ie: EAL, assessment, behaviour)

• Leading driving improvement and success across your age phases and throughout the school.

• Performance management.

• Managing your leadership and class teaching effectively (up to 80% teaching commitment initially)

• Contributing to the continued success of our school! Our school needs you to be:

• A good role model for both children and staff, with high standards for you and them.

• Someone who is prepared to take that extra step for our children, colleagues and our community.

• A caring and enthusiastic person who is passionate about enabling children and staff to achieve the best they possibly can.

• Open to new initiatives, flexible and a strong team player (we’re a good team here!)

We can offer you:

• A supportive and dedicated team, lovely and engaging children.

• Good career development.

• An opportunity to make a real and significant difference in a rapidly improving school.

• A parking space! (These are like gold dust!)
