Assistant Head Teacher with Key Stage responsibility, Felixstowe, starting 1 September 2013 or ASAP

Assistant Head teacher with Key Stage responsibility

Leadership Scale (starting at L2)

Langer Primary School, based in Suffolk, went into special measures in September 2010 and good progress in all key areas was noted during an Ofsted monitoring visit in March 2012. The school re-opened as an Academy in May 2012 and is sponsored by the Academies Enterprise Trust (AET).  The Academy is committed to making the very best of its Academy status to significantly improve standards, especially in literacy and numeracy, as well as to improve the quality of teaching and learning. 

Langer Primary has approximately 150 children currently on roll, meaning that the academy is large enough to offer a range of exciting opportunities for the children, but small enough for the staff to get to know the children and their individual needs very well.  We have a new Headteacher and a team of dedicated teachers and support staff to take us into a new era.  We hope to find someone who will join us on our journey onwards and upwards!

We are looking for an outstanding practitioner to be a joint Assistant Head teacher and lead a Key Stage in the on-going development of our academy. The successful applicant will also have a class teaching responsibility for a mixed age class. Duties will include deputising for the Head teacher in their absence on a rota basis with the partner Assistant HT. Our Academy is making good progress, according to our latest HMI report, and we are aspiring to be even better!

In each of the AET academies, you will benefit from visionary, inspirational and dynamic leadership and be empowered to develop your own skills with access to world-class CPD and Talent Management programmes.  You will also be offered membership of a private health cash plan, the Ford Advantage Scheme and be entitled to Childcare Vouchers and much, much more!

Visits to the Academy are warmly encouraged.  To arrange a visit or to discuss the position in further detail please contact the Academy on 01394 283065.

This position is required to commence September 2013 or as soon as the successful candidate is available and interviews are scheduled for 18 July 2013.

Closing date: 12 July 2013.

We reserve the right to close this vacancy early should we receive an overwhelming response.  All candidates are advised to refer to the job description and person specification before making an application.

As with all workshops we can tailor the content to what YOU need.

Here is some feedback about the workshop from an independent school in Buckinghamshire where we delivered SoapScience4YourSchool for the fifth year running in June 2013:

“Presentation is inspiring and inclusive, and rapidly draws in even those whose approach to regular lessons can be more sceptical. The management of the students is probably the best I’ve seen from anyone who is not a professional full-time teacher- the balance of excitement and containment is often something that outside speakers & others involved in schools liaison find challenging, but this was spot-on.”

What is it that all children who are good readers and writers have in common?

Find a good reader and writer and you will, in almost every case, find a child who enjoys becoming more confident with the technicalities of language.

Such children are developing the ability to recognise a writer’s use of grammar for effect, and ultimately they take on this ability themselves – an ability to manipulate language in their own writing.

In short, good readers recognise and enjoy the use of language for purpose, effect and meaning, and ultimately they develop this in their own writing.

Which means that the question we all face is: how do we take this recognition and enjoyment and turn it into an increasingly sophisticated ability to handle language?

The solution that my colleagues and I have found involves getting the children to think about language in more depth – to see it as not just words that they might automatically use but as something that can be considered as intrinsically interesting.

From this point grows the notion that thinking about language is not only interesting in itself, but is also something which gives us control – over what we understand from our reading and what we choose to write.

And this leads on to the suggestion that control over the way we express ourselves can be empowering and has a direct relationship to the influence we have on others – a notion that is utterly fascinating all of us, not just children.

It is tantamount to saying that their chances of getting what they want from their parents and others is dependent on the way they use language – and suddenly the study of language has an end which they find both startling and motivating.

This viewpoint was the starting point for “It’s a Case of Grammar”, a pack which makes overt links into the context of grammar and has children thinking about language in more depth than might otherwise be achieved.

In short it focuses on the language’s possibilities and potential. It answers the question, “Why do I need to know about grammar?” with the answer, “because it gives me the power and control over what I read and write,” and from there it leads into the building blocks of making meaning.

All the ideas within the pack are written with a spirit of exploration, creativity and interactivity. In short, the thinking child meets SPaG – and the thinking child comes out on top.

The resource contains over 100 new ideas for exploring and teaching grammar at key stage 2. It also includes a comprehensive training pack and a detailed glossary.
