Part of the Federation of Lindsworth and Springfield House Schools

Required for 1 September 2018
 

The Federated Governing Body of Lindsworth and Springfield House Schools are seeking to appoint an innovative Assistant Headteacher, to lead on teaching, learning and assessment. We are looking for a candidate who is committed to further developing their leadership and management skills in a rapidly improving school. We work closely with all stakeholders to further expand and improve the offer for disadvantaged children who have a wide range of complex social, emotional and mental health needs.  

We are looking for an outstanding candidate who will:

•    Be an inspirational leader who can shape and deliver our strategy
•    Has a proven track record in outstanding teaching and learning
•    Monitor, analyse and effectively use assessment data to positively impact on student outcomes
•    Has the passion to raise the level of achievement and outcomes for all our students

•    Build strong relationships with all our stakeholders 

This is an exciting opportunity to be part of a forward thinking pro-active team committed to further improving outcomes for very vulnerable young people.

As a school we are firmly committed to developing the talents and potential of all our staff and place great emphasis on their wellbeing.  We are focused on, and committed to, making rapid progress towards delivering an outstanding provision and are looking to appoint staff who have high expectations of themselves and pupils.

The Federated Governing Body of Lindsworth and Springfield House Schools was established in November 2015.  We are keen to further expand the collaborative working opportunities across the two schools.  Whilst initially this current vacancy will be based at Lindsworth School, in the future the position may involve a greater degree of working across both schools.

Lindsworth School is a mixed day/residential special school meeting the needs of 130 pupils from Year 5 to Year 11 who have been assessed as having social, emotional and mental health difficulties. Many of the pupils have medical diagnoses including ADHD, ASC, PTSD, PDA, ODD and Attachment Disorder. They have also experienced significant disruption to their education due to multiple school moves, fixed term and permanent exclusions and long periods of part-time or no placement in a school.

Lindsworth School received a judgement of “Good” from Ofsted in January 2016 and its residential provision was again judged as “Good” in January 2018.  The school is part of the Priority Schools Building Programme (PSBP) and initial plans are underway.

This is a school where you can make a real and lasting difference to the young people in our care. We are highly ambitious to provide our students with the best education and preparation for a happy and successful life in the adult world.

Candidates are expected to make an informal visit prior to submitting an application.  We have provisionally allocated two days:
