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.
