Salary: L4 to L8 (£45,658 - £50,397)
Start date: 23rd August 2021
Thank you for expressing an interest in the post of Deputy Headteacher at Huncote Primary School. The post has become available due to the retirement of our long standing Assistant Headteacher. This is an exciting time for Huncote Primary and a new chapter in its development.
We are a family orientated school very much at the heart of our community. Our pupils are well behaved and keen to learn – they always make us proud of them! The school is in the village of Huncote close to the edge of Leicester.
The staff are very welcoming and care for each other – we are very much team Huncote! They work hard and have been focused since our last inspection report on improving the school. The successful candidate will work closely with the Headteacher to lead the team in raising standards and continue to develop an engaging curriculum that leads our children to develop a ‘love of learning’ and in turn ‘learn for life’.
Teaching Commitment: This role will involve a full class responsibility for either a KS1 or KS2 class depending upon strengths of the candidate.
Leadership release time: One day per week release time will be scheduled in addition to PPA and the class covered by a qualified release teacher.
Leadership responsibilities: Alongside the Head teacher the Deputy Head will be responsible for driving improvements in teaching and learning. Exact details of responsibilities will be shaped according to the strengths and expertise of the successful candidate.
Visits are warmly welcomed and we would very much like the opportunity to show you around our school so you can meet our staff and see our children in action. If you have any questions or would like to book an appointment please do so via the school office.
