Deputy Headteacher

Kingsley Community Primary and Nursery School is a welcoming, vibrant and inclusive community school in the heart of the Cheshire countryside. We provide care for children from the age of 2 to 11 years old, from 7 am to 6:30 pm. Due to a restructure of our existing team, we require a Deputy Headteacher; the Governors wish to appoint a teacher with a proven track record of excellence who will support our school values.

We are seeking an ambitious and energetic professional with experience of leading teams, monitoring teaching and learning, and with experience of successfully leading improvement and raising standards.  Our community is highly valued by our families and staff and as a school we expect everyone to actively contribute to and promote our strong, positive ethos.

If you are a dynamic and inspirational leader with the capacity to grow and develop in the role; if you have initiative, constructive enthusiasm, a thorough knowledge of all key stages and the ambition to play a major role in the leadership and management of our school; then we would love to hear from you.

  • An exemplary leader with the enthusiasm to motivate staff and encourage teamwork;
  • An outstanding and inspirational teacher who is committed to providing high quality learning experiences for all children;
  • Experienced in curriculum innovation and development and able to demonstrate that they have had an impact in raising standards;

  • Teach caring children who are keen to learn;
