Deputy Headteacher

East Crompton St George’s CofE Primary

 Required for September 2019

ISR: L4-L8

Salary:  £43,034 - £47,501

 Closing date for applications: Monday 18 March at 12 pm

 Interview Date:  Monday 25 and Tuesday 26 March              


East Crompton St George’s CofE Primary School is looking for a highly-motivated, ambitious and committed Deputy Headteacher who wants to make a difference.

We are on a journey:  St George’s has the potential to become a really good school and we want someone who can help our dynamic and inspiring new Headteacher and willing staff to achieve this for our children.


We are looking for:

  • A good all-rounder, with a proven record of excellent primary practice.
  • An experienced teacher who has successfully led and managed improvement with impact.
  • A team-builder who can motivate and develop other staff.
  • A leader who is aspirational for all our children and who is committed to excellence and achievement for all.
  • Someone with a strong commitment to pastoral care, who understands the importance of fostering and nurturing good communication within our school community and beyond.
  • A future school leader who sees and grasps the benefits of working in a multi-academy trust with colleagues across our family of schools.

We can offer:

  • The opportunity to work with lovely children in a very attractive setting.
  • The opportunity to be part of a new and developing team. In addition to the Head and Deputy, there are 2 further members of leadership. One post focuses currently on developing our writing strategy and curriculum development in science.  The second post will focus on SEND.
  • The opportunity to make a real difference. St George’s has enormous potential but has had its challenges in recent years.  We now have secure and dynamic leadership under a new Head who has already made significant inroads.  There is still a lot to do – and therefore lots of opportunities for a committed, creative school leader.
  • The support of a strong, established Trust and experts in finance, HR, ICT, business and all legal and compliance issues. Senior leaders in our Trust can focus on improving educational provision and can develop a strategic understanding of all the business aspects of a school, without having to do the technical work.
  • Excellent professional development opportunities. The Cranmer Education Trust is committed to investing in our staff. Working collaboratively with staff and leaders across our 3 schools, both primary and secondary and trainees in our SCITT and colleagues in our wider Teaching School Alliance, ensures that our staff develop a wide range of professional knowledge, skills and contacts.

Come and see!
