APPOINTED: Deputy Headteacher – Primary, Redhill, Surrey

Posted 4 months ago

Are you an experienced Deputy Head looking for a bigger role or an outstanding Assistant Head looking for the next step up?

St Matthew’s C of E School is a large 2 form-entry primary school (NOR: 480) including Nursery and Special Need Support Centre based in the heart of Redhill, Surrey, with excellent road and rail links that allows easy travel from further afield.

We are embarking on a new chapter in the life of St Matthew’s. From September, we will be one of the first cohort of schools to join the newly formed Southwark Diocesan Board of Education Multi-Academy Trust. The school has so much to celebrate, though still more has to be done to implement and embed improvements to teaching and learning and secure better outcomes for our children.

We are looking for an outstanding School Leader with high expectations of children’s learning and behaviour to play a significant part in our school improvement programme.

The role is non-class-based although it will include some teaching. The post holder will work as part of the Senior Leadership Team in monitoring, coaching and having a whole-school overview in order to continue to accelerate pupils’ progress and raise standards. Effective analysis and use of performance data to impact on pupil progress and attainment will be a key aspect of the role.

We can offer you:

  • The exciting challenge of taking our school to “good” and onto “outstanding”
  • Opportunities to teach and lead curriculum areas and extra-curriculum activities across the whole primary age range
  • A committed team of colleagues and governors
  • A happy and harmonious community built on strong Christian foundations
  • A school with excellent facilities and extensive grounds

Applicants are expected to be sympathetic to the Christian ethos of the school.

Closing date: Monday 15 May at Midday

Interviews: Monday 22 & Tuesday 23 May

If you believe you can provide outstanding leadership, which inspires and motivates others towards excellence and ensures the very best education for all our learners, then we would love to hear from you.

You are warmly encouraged to come and visit St Matthew’s where you can see for yourself our unique and inclusive character.
