Due to the retirement of one of the Headteachers the Trust are in a position to recruit an Executive Headteacher to lead the alignment of the infant and junior school, leading to the feeling of an all through primary at Hyde Park.
The vision is to realise a whole school vision with policy and practice consistent from foundation to year 6. We want the stick of rock to clearly say ‘Hyde Park’ throughout. While doing this it will be
critical to bring the teams together at the schools, and the leader must have the skill set to do this.
Strong communication skills will be key with this role as it is essential that the leader communicates with all stakeholders. As part of the consultation to move to this model the school
community has been made aware that there might be the need to fully amalgamate if this phase of alignment does not lead to full collaboration of approach. There would be no need to restructure the leadership teams at this point, and this has been stated in the business base.
As part of a nine school Trust we would expect the leader of the school to embrace the opportunities that this gives. Our leaders work very effectively together and this is key to the direction of the Trust. It is vital that all of our Headteachers work collaboratively sharing their
expertise and knowledge. We want to appoint a leader who brings other skills and knowledge to our team.
