Are you ready to take the next step in your career? Would you like to join a friendly and supportive team?
We are pleased to offer an exciting opportunity to become our new Deputy Headteacher and SENDCo.
At Manor Field Infant School, we are extremely proud of our rich curriculum that motivates and inspires our children, our outcomes for all pupils, and the way that our STAR values of Success, Teamwork, Aspiration and Respect permeate through all that we do in our school.

We are looking for an ambitious and inspirational professional with energy, drive and a firm commitment to high standards and achievement for all pupils. You will be a strong teacher with demonstrable coaching and/or mentoring skills who will be able to work with all staff to further develop teaching and learning throughout our school. You will lead our SEND provision, providing support and advice to inspire and support the whole school community. If you already have the SENCo qualification, great, but if not then we will support you whilst you gain this.
As a great teacher, you will be a problem solver, resilient, well-motivated, and highly organised. You will have great communication skills and be able to lead and manage others effectively, getting the very best from them.
