Closing Date: 7th February 2024
Interview Date: 20th February 2024
Are you an inspirational leader who positively influences the behaviour of others, motivating staff and students to engage with the core values of the academy and of the wider Trust?
Wellfield Academy are seeking to recruit an Assistant Headteacher – SEND & Inclusion, as we continue our journey to sustained academy improvement.
As an Assistant Headteacher, you play a leading role in delivering the School Development Plan priorities, through bringing clear strategic direction to the development of the support systems and the whole school.
The successful candidate will play the leading role in delivering an outstanding education and providing strong and effective leadership across the academy for all those students with identified SEND needs, ensuring every student has an opportunity to play a full and active role in our academy. This role includes leading upon support for Looked After Children (including post-LAC), English as an Additional Language and those with medical conditions.
The successful candidate will also be expected to model best practice within the classroom and, as a result, there will be a small teaching commitment although this will be finalised based upon the strengths of the successful candidate. We are therefore open to applications from candidates who have taught at both primary or secondary phase in any subject area.
You will have the knowledge and understanding of the academy’s vision, aims, priorities, targets and action plans and an ability to write an annual departmental development plan and self-evaluation plan that is informed by accurate data analysis.
We are seeking an individual who has an organised and methodical approach to work, can demonstrate a passion for continual improvement and achievement, with an ability to inspire the confidence of students, parents and colleagues with enthusiasm and commitment to the role.
We are delighted to advertise the vacancy for the Assistant Headteacher position with responsibility for SEND and Inclusion.
We are passionate about creating an accessible and supportive educational experience for all of our students and the successful candidate will play an integral role across the school in fostering an inclusive learning environment to support the diverse needs of all students.
Wellfield Academy is an ambitious, growing and thriving school. At our school, students experience inspirational and challenging teaching, excellent pastoral care and a genuine belief that every child can succeed. The successful candidate will join us at an incredibly exciting time for the school. We are one of just a small number of schools nationally to be chosen for the Department for Education’s Schools Rebuilding Project, which will see us move into a brand-new state of the art school in the coming years. In addition, our fantastic reputation in the local community has secured a significant growth in the number of students attending Wellfield. The number of families choosing Wellfield as their first-choice secondary school has more than trebled in the past three years and we are excited to welcome more staff into the Wellfield family as a result.
As a school situated in the heart of Leyland, one of our many strengths is our community spirit and family feel. Each student is known as an individual and supported by key staff, as well as being challenged to be the best they can be. At Wellfield, we believe that every child should be treated as we would want our own children to be. As a result, our students feel safe and valued in an environment where we find the right balance between support and challenge. Our mantra is ‘Nothing but the Best’ and this permeates everything that we do for every student and every member of staff. Our family ethos is tangible: we work as a team, and we want the best for everyone.
We are dedicated to developing students who are aspirational, inclusive of one another and rooted in their community. We are extremely passionate about ensuring the successful development of each individual child within an ambitious learning environment. Our students behave well, and they thrive in our warm and inclusive environment. We are proud of our significant improvement over recent years, and we will continue to provide the very best for each and every one of our students.
We hope the information on this website will encourage you to apply.
