Thank you for taking the time to consider the important role of Headteacher at Belmont Park. We are a school which is fully committed to providing a high-quality provision which aims to provide success for every student. We are seeking an inspirational leader who shares our values and is committed to delivering the highest levels of teaching and learning.

The students at Belmont Park deserve the very best leaders and teachers and we are seeking an exceptional candidate for this key role. We are looking for a leader who can play an influential role in nurturing a positive culture and can bring with them talent and expertise to make a difference.

We are very aware that we are operating in a rapidly changing environment: funding for special education is changing; the curriculum is developing; and managing complex needs and significant behavioral issues requires a constantly evolving approach and highly effective partnership working. For these reasons, we are looking for a strategic leader who will take advantage of the opportunities presented to the school, navigate operational challenges, and help us to fulfill our potential by securing our position as a regional center of top-quality provision for students with social and emotional mental health challenges.

Our school serves the needs of up to 64 young people from Waltham Forest and surrounding London boroughs for whom challenges have disrupted their education and home life to date. These young people need their school and everyone in it to believe in them and to nurture them through the range of barriers that may be affecting their current engagement and potential outcomes.

Our state-of-the-art facilities mean that we can provide all the benefits of an enhanced mainstream education – including a full GCSE curriculum, vocational courses, and proven progression routes – in a place that is safe, welcoming and offers them high levels of practical opportunities and holistic support to help our students achieve. We want a head teacher who can retain and improve this level and quality of provision.

This candidate pack and our website will give you an initial sense, but they cannot convey the unique and special ethos of our schools, which can only be appreciated by coming to look around.

If you have any queries or would like to discuss any aspect of the role, please refer to the supporting documentation for contact details.
