Required 1 September 2019

Dinnington First School is in the small village of Dinnington, on the northern outskirts of Newcastle upon Tyne, accessible from all major routes. Part of the Gosforth Pyramid 3-tier system and a founder member of the Gosforth Schools Trust, most children follow the current feeder arrangement into Gosforth East Middle School and later to Gosforth Academy. Following recent investment from the Department of Education and Newcastle Local Authority, the staff and pupils moved into a brand new, purpose-built school in January this year.

Due to the forthcoming retirement of our current Headteacher we are looking to appoint an inspirational, innovative and motivated leader, who will continue to take the school forward with vision and passion. Governors, staff and pupils are seeking someone to continue to improve and sustain high expectations, aspirations and achievements for all our learners. Applicants will need to provide leadership of the highest quality in the academic, pastoral and management fields and be able to show evidence of successful change management.

The successful candidate will:
• Have a passion for education and the knowledge, vision and skills to build on our good progress
• Lead by example and have high expectations of attainment, progress and behaviour
• Be passionate about developing teaching and learning with an imaginative and effective approach
• Balance resources efficiently and effectively in a way that maximises performance and ensures the financial sustainability of the school
• Enhance our strong links with the Parish, Gosforth Schools Trust, parents and the wider community

In return we will offer:
• A happy, warm, welcoming school community
• Polite and confident pupils who are positive about their learning.
• Professional and dedicated staff who work well as a team
• A caring community, united in our desire to learn and improve together
• Excellent learning facilities which are bright, spacious and new.
• Supportive Governors, staff and parents
• The opportunity to further develop leadership skills and CPD
