Assistant Headteacher (Inclusion)
Full time, Leadership scale 1-5
We are delighted to be able to offer you the chance to apply for this exciting new role. Changes within our current leadership team mean that we are looking to appoint an Assistant Head to lead on inclusion.
Our large modern building, with extensive grounds, provides a fantastic learning environment. We work in partnership with Hackney Learning Trust to deliver Daily Supported Reader and Destination Reader as we know learning to read is a fundamental skill for all pupils. In addition we teach phonics from nursery using the Ruth Miskin Read Write Inc programme.
We are developing our mastery approach to the teaching of mathematics and have a trained specialist teacher leading maths. We have redesigned our curriculum so it ensures that our teaching actively engages learners to deepen and embed key concepts and skills as well as the transfer of knowledge across the curriculum.
Glenleigh Park is a school that can offer exceptional professional development opportunities, high levels of support and the chance to make a real difference to pupils’ outcomes.
