Oakhill Primary School is a large primary school serving the Trent Vale and Oakhill area of Stoke on Trent. We pride ourselves on our nurturing approach. At Oakhill all staff and pupils belong to a team – respect, resilience, empathy, confidence, ambition and independence. These are the key qualities we believe all our pupils need to fulfil their potential and be happy in life. We also need these qualities in our staff members – do you have these qualities?  

Our Governing Body wishes to appoint a dynamic, energetic and hard-working Assistant Headteacher, who is also organised, approachable and able to build excellent relationships based on mutual trust and respect.

It is essential that the post holder will add to the positive ethos of Oakhill, for the benefit of our children and staff, by being willing to take part in the wider life of the school.

The post holder will work closely with all staff; including support staff, teachers, phase leaders, Deputy and Headteacher.

We need a highly motivated, innovative teacher, who has very high expectations in order to...

  • To work as a member of the Strategic Leadership Team to lead the school effectively, improve standards of teaching and learning and achieve better outcomes for all pupils.
  • To actively model and promote the values and ethos of the School.
  • To support and line manage our phase leaders and help to support staff across the school.
  • To be responsible for the curriculum and subject leaders.
  • To offer an excellent and professional model of classroom teaching, setting and maintaining high standards of work and behaviour in and out of the classroom as an example for others.

We are not specifying all the key responsibilities as we want to find the right person for the role and we can negotiate areas of responsibility to suit the right candidate. There will be a 0.4 teaching commitment, initially in Y6, however this will only be for two terms, then any year group is possible.

Oakhill Primary School is committed to safeguarding all pupils.  Successful candidates will be subject to an enhanced DBS check.  Identity checks will be carried out, references sought and qualifications verified before any offers of posts are made.
