You will also have: 

experience of successfully improving the quality of teaching and learning in order to raise children’s achievement over a sustained period of time; experience of using the outcomes from school self-evaluation to plan effectively for school improvement; experience of holding staff to account for the impact of their work and experience of delivering training and CPD to a range of audiences.

Outlined in your application letter you should demonstrate your in-depth knowledge and understanding of a specific aspect of the curriculum and/or pedagogy.

In return we can offer:

partnership working within a mutually supportive forward-thinking school community; the opportunity to work within a friendly, open, highly experienced team and the chance to innovate and develop school improvement creatively.
