Walker, NE6 2NP
Our school is one of six primary and secondary schools within the NEAT Academy Trust family of schools. At the heart of our trust is the aim to nurture, educate, achieve and transform the lives of all young people within the communities we serve across the North East. We have a national research school, which aims to build and strengthen networks of schools throughout the region and help them access effective education research and implement it in everyday practice.
Central Walker is a supportive, welcoming and motivated school community, working hard to achieve high standards. We acknowledge the rich, cultural diversity of our community in the east end of Newcastle upon Tyne. Our ethos is based on the Christian Values that we all need to help us lead a good and purposeful life.
We are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic, highly skilled Deputy Headteacher who can contribute to improving the learning experiences of young people. As a Church of England School, in an area of socio-economic disadvantage, a passion for inclusion is essential.
We are looking for a leader who can inspire and influence and who:
Demands ambitious standards and high expectations for all pupils.
Has a detailed understanding of the essential components of quality first teaching, can define a vision for quality first teaching and drive teaching and learning across the whole school.
Has experience of contributing to leadership and management in a primary school as a member of the Senior Leadership Team.
Can demonstrate behaviours consistent with the trust’s values: aspirational, collaborative, inclusive, innovative and responsible.
Can drive the school’s Christian ethos and religious character and be a positive Christian influence in the school.
In return we offer:
A positive and caring Christian ethos.
A team of hardworking, dedicated and friendly staff where everyone is valued.
A commitment to continuing professional development.
The benefit of working in a highly collaborative multi academy trust.
