A Headteacher is needed for a day school in the Midlands, just outside of Birmingham. This is a permanent role starting after Easter 2019. Knowledge of leading SEN is essential as this is an ASD/complex needs provision, so you will be expected to have worked as a senior role in a SEN school to be considered for this role.
The main responsibility of this role is to line manage the teaching staff and to lead running the school with the Executive Headteacher. The role is 40 hours per week and Monday to Friday with weekends being on call as required. You will be an experienced senior manager who is ready for your next challenge to drive change and ensure top level management. This role would suite a SENCO or Assistant/Deputy Headteacher who has a deep knowledge of SEN. You will be a natural leader who is able to oversee complex projects and have strong strategic leadership and change management skills. Knowledge or the Steiner curriculum and sensory curriculums would be an advantage but not essential, however you must share the school ethos of an outdoor curriculum.
