Head Teacher required for January 2019

Iffley Academy, Iffley, Oxford OX4 4DU

Leadership Scale L21 – L27

Iffley Academy is a special academy for students with a range of SEND, including Cognition and Learning Needs, Autistic Spectrum Disorder and Social, Emotional and Mental Health Needs.  The Academy is a member of The Gallery Trust, an expanding Special Needs Multi Academy Trust dedicated to improving outcomes for SEND learners in Oxfordshire.  With two academies currently in the Trust, and with 2 special schools in negotiation to join, the Trust’s aim is to build a community of 6 to 8 special schools over the next 10 years.  A National Support School and a Strategic Partner of the Oxfordshire Teaching School Alliance, Iffley Academy has recently achieved the Restorative Services Quality Mark – the first special school to receive this award.

The Board of Trustees is seeking to appoint an inspirational and dynamic Head Teacher who will lead the Academy through its next period of opportunity, growth and development.

The successful candidate will clearly demonstrate:

·       the vision and skills to lead and manage the Academy on a journey of continuous improvement

·       commitment to working in partnership with the CEO, Trustees, Governors, staff and key stakeholders to improve outcomes for students and to ensure all students reach their potential

·       exceptional abilities in operational management and strategic thinking

·       substantial leadership experience and recent SEND experience

·       a proven track record in school improvement

·       dedication to the inclusion of students with SEND in education and society as a whole

 The Chief Executive Officer, Kay Willett, will support the induction of the new substantive Head Teacher by working collaboratively with the post holder for an 18 to 24 month period as Executive Head.  The Head Teacher post will hold all the responsibilities and delegated powers commensurate to the role but the collaborative model will offer significant additional support, advice and guidance with the more complex and challenging aspects of the role.  We offer a competitive salary, continuing professional development, the prospect of working with a skilled and supportive staff team and, above all, the opportunity to improve outcomes for the enthusiastic learners in our vibrant community.
