We wish to appoint an inspirational leader to join our school as Head of Primary on a 0.2fte job share basis from September 2019.
As Head of Primary you will have joint responsibility for the leadership and management of our primary phase, working closely with your job share partner and the Headteacher in shaping our strategic vision. You will be an integral member of the school’s Headship Team and supported in your role by our talented and enthusiastic primary team.
The successful candidate will have established a track record of securing the best possible learning outcomes (with respect to attainment and progress) of all learners, be that at EYFS, KS1 or KS2. You will be an outstanding classroom practitioner with the proven ability to lead and influence others to achieve exceptional performance, holding them accountable to the highest expectations with respect to their own practice and the learning of the children in their care.
Prendergast Primary School is part of Prendergast Ladywell School, an all-through school from EYFS to Year 11. The primary phase opened in 2014 and benefits from a purpose built primary building, as well as a stunning outdoor space which includes specifically designed play areas for Reception, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2, as well as the school's own Nature Reserve. The school is fortunate to be one of the only primary schools in Lewisham to have its own Teaching Kitchen classroom.
Being part of a successful Federation of Schools, located in easy travelling distance of each other, enables the schools to support each other and share best practice and resources. It also enables the Federation to offer staff the opportunity to develop their career as we are committed to developing and promoting from within wherever possible.
We offer a comprehensive and supportive induction programme for all new staff. You will also have access to a rich and varied CPD programme within the school and across the Federation.
