Tees Valley Education is seeking to appoint an inspirational Deputy Head Teacher for Brambles and a Deputy Head of Academy for Pennyman to lead on Teaching, Learning and Assessment. These opportunities have arisen from staff promotion and restructure and have been designed to further strengthen strategic and operational leadership capacity to both academies and to the Trust. In both of these posts you will work closely with other senior leaders to identify and continually develop strategy in key areas and with teachers to use this to maximise outcomes for children.
In conjunction with the Head Teacher/ Head of Academy and other Senior Leaders, the post holder will lead on aspects of teaching and learning, coaching and mentoring of staff, development of subject leaders and areas of improvement including assessment. At Pennyman there will be no set classroom responsibility, but teaching, at times, will form part of the role. At Brambles there is an expectation that the post holder will share their outstanding classroom practise to add capacity in identified areas linked to school improvement. Consequently, the post holder will utilise their outstanding pedagogy and inspirational leadership to refine, develop and promulgate existing practices and programmes.
This is a fantastic opportunity for a dedicated and ambitious individual to develop as a senior leader and take the next steps towards Headship.
Both are excellent academies to work in, both of which have a track record of outstanding leadership. Our children are a joy to work with and ‘are recognised as proud academy learners and citizens’. Furthermore ‘Pupils know implicitly how to behave and how to interact positively with each other and with staff. This is because of the high levels of respect that underpin the school’s very inclusive and supportive ethos.’ Ofsted. In addition, we are also committed to your professional development (CPD) and offer a wide range of opportunities for career progression.
Applications are invited from prospective candidates who are able to demonstrate that they are able to meet the essential criteria set out in the person specification. Academy preference should be indicated on the application form with a clear rationale.
Visits to the academies are strongly encouraged and can be arranged by appointment with the academy offices on the following dates:
Brambles: 5th - 6th May 1-4 p.m., 7th May 1-3 p.m., 11th - 14th May 1-4.30pm
Pennyman: Wednesday 5th May pm, Friday 7th May am, Wednesday 12th May, Thursday 13th May am
