Executive Head Teacher for All Saints, Bednall and St Leonard’s, Dunston (Trinity Federation)
Executive Head Teacher Required for All Saints, Bednall and St Leonard’s, Dunston (Trinity Federation)
Start date: January 2019
Closing date: Monday 17th September 2018
Interview date: Thursday 27th September 2018
Contract type: Full Time
Salary: L12 - 18
The Governors of the Trinity Federation seek to appoint an Executive Headteacher for All Saints C of E (A) Primary School, Bednall and St Leonard’s C of E (C) First School, Dunston. The vacancy has arisen due to the forthcoming retirement of the current Executive Headteacher at the end of December 2018.
The situations in the two schools are complex ones. All Saints school, Bednall was placed in a category by Ofsted in February 2018. Meanwhile, St Leonard’s School, Dunston was inspected by Ofsted in May 2018, and it was confirmed that it was still a good school.
There is much scope for moving both schools forward as both have pupils with exemplary behaviour who are keen to learn. Staff are also on a learning journey and will need encouragement, development and support.
Both schools are Church of England schools and have links with their corresponding church communities and the Lichfield Diocese; this is a particular strength of St Leonard’s.
The Federation governing board has been in existence since November 2016 and is responsible for all three schools of the Trinity Federation. St Michael’s School in Penkridge is the biggest of the three schools and has been fortunate enough to have an experienced Headteacher taking over from the retiring Headteacher in September 2018. This means that there is another Headteacher within the Federation to offer support and be a partner with the new Executive Headteacher within the Federation.
Although this is a challenging post, we believe it is one that, for the right candidate, will be a very fulfilling one as you take both schools forward on their journeys to offer the very best education to pupils in distinctively Christian environments.
To apply, please complete and submit an application form with a supporting statement. You will need to state clearly how you meet the requirements described in the Job Description and Person Specification.
