Principal Teacher Support for Learning

35 hours per week (1.0 FTE)
Permanent
£60,024 (including Distant Islands Allowance)

We are looking for a committed and dynamic individual who will enjoy the challenge of leading our dedicated Support for Learning team to meet the additional support needs of young people at Stromness Academy.

You will be a skilled and enthusiastic educator who combines experience in inclusive practice with leadership skills. You will be fully committed to the learning and teaching approaches of Curriculum for Excellence and to inspiring and motivating pupils. A track record of successful collegiate and partnership working and a solution-oriented approach to meeting the needs of learners are essential.

As Principal Teacher, you will work with your team to create and deliver your own Department Improvement Plan. In addition, you will be part of the wider leadership team of the school, taking a lead role in self-evaluation and delivering our School Improvement Plan.

Stromness Academy is a six year secondary school on a well-appointed campus in Orkney, which is frequently voted the best place in the UK to bring up children. Our catchment area covers the town of Stromness and the West Mainland, a dispersed population with over two thirds of our pupils being bussed into school. The small size of our school (approximately 350 on roll), and our classes, means we know our pupils well and are able to be flexible to meet their needs. We are committed to providing a positive and purposeful environment where all our pupils achieve, as set out in our school vision. This is an exciting opportunity for the right candidate to become part of a forward-looking school and a rich and vibrant community.

Further information about the school and our activities can be found on our website www.stromnessacademy.org.uk and our Facebook page

You must be registered, or in the process of registering, with the General Teaching Council for Scotland.
