St Peter's is looking to appoint a new Deputy Headteacher to start in September 2021.

St Peter's is a vibrant caring school. Its underlying Christian ethos and values are biblically based on 'the fruits of the Spirit', namely, love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, self-control and faithfulness. These completely underpin the life, work and decisions of the school.

Every child is treated as a unique and special individual where there is the opportunity to develop particular talents and skills, and also where time is given in supporting and encouraging children to persevere at any area of the curriculum or school life that is more challenging for them.

Our last OFSTED report marked us good with many outstanding attributes and our SIAMS inspection rated us as outstanding.

This role suits aspiring Deputy Headteachers with excellent teaching practice as it encompasses a 4 day teaching responsibility in either EYFS or Class 4 (mixed Year 5/6 Class).

The successful candidate will be someone who:

• Is an excellent classroom practitioner and role model

· Is a strong communicator who is able to lead, inspire, motivate others and work effectively as part of a team

· Has a track record of successful leadership and management

· Has a strong commitment to the school's Christian ethos and its links with the wider community

In return we offer you the opportunity to take a lead role in the direction of the school, delightful and engaged children, dedicated and friendly staff and a strong and supportive governing body who share a high commitment to the welfare and education of the pupils.
