As Head Teacher, in addition to ensuring the School complies with and exceeds all regulatory requirements, you will lead the School in all areas of education and learning to ensure all our young people achieve their maximum potential.
Your role will also require you to structure, organise and develop a team of professionals who are committed to delivering the School’s Vision, ensuring the highest possible outcomes for all its children.
Through your visionary, inspired leadership and working in partnership with our children and young people, their families, carers and other stakeholders, to achieve outcomes which make a difference, you will ensure the School becomes a leading school within the sector, delivering on its Vision and Mission.
This is an exciting opportunity for an outstanding Head Teacher who is experienced within the SEN sector and who shares our mission to develop confident and capable young people by meeting their educational, health and social care needs in a structured and nurturing school environment.
The successful candidate will start in early 2020.
To be considered for this role, you will need to be able to evidence strong leadership qualities, a passion for innovation and continuous improvement, as well as demonstrable experience and knowledge of working within the arena of special education needs, particularly ASC.
We will offer you the opportunity to engage and collaborate with colleagues across our other provisions within the Kedleston family, a wealth of opportunities for professional and career development, a competitive salary of circa £70k and an array of other staff benefits as well as an attractive contributory pension scheme.
