Small enough to care, big enough to make a positive impact

As a 13-18 school and a middle school in south east Northumberland with good standards of teaching and behaviour and a strong commitment to improvement, we believe passionately that every student should be enabled to succeed in all aspects of school life. Building on our recent ‘Good’ rating by Ofsted, we continue to strive for further improvements.

An exciting opportunity has arisen for an enthusiastic and talented Assistant Headteacher to join the schools to focus on our SEND and disadvantaged provision, and the establishment of our new additional resource base for ASD pupils. With a strong sense of purpose and drive to improve student attainment and progress, you will join a small but committed team and will be supported to further develop your career and professional practice.

The schools have a well founded reputation for their inclusivity and support for SEND pupils and we want to build on that. The Local Authority has identified us as a place to establish the first of the new ARPs. We are looking for the right person to join our small but very dedicated and committed SLT to lead on the establishment of the ARP and provide the strategic leadership for SEND and disadvantaged pupils. We need a highly motivated individual who can enable our students to exceed their expectations and have high aspirations for their futures.

This post is to work across both schools but you will support the Head of School at Whytrig Middle School on a day to day basis.

Visits to the school are also warmly welcomed and encouraged. Please contact Angela Small on 0191 2371505 to make an appointment.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. It is essential that all staff and volunteers share this commitment. An enhanced criminal records check from the Disclosure and Barring Service is required for all posts.

Interested in applying? A completed application form and criminal records declaration form must be submitted by 12 noon on Friday 4th September date by e-mail to vacancies@svf.org.uk

It is expected that interviews will be held on Tuesday 15th September 2020
