Ryelands is a happy and forward-thinking community primary school serving the Ryelands community. There are 65% pupils entitled to PPG. The school has increasingly played a vital role as a hub for the community and opportunities to develop this are being further explored by governors. Our expectations are high, pupils and staff are highly valued; this is reflected in our ethos, learning environment and in all we do. There are over 400 children in school, two form entry with a nursery taking pupils from the age of two.

We are looking to appoint an Assistant Headteacher to complement our leadership team, with the same drive and commitment to raising standards, to providing the very best provision for pupils and with a real desire to make a difference.

The Assistant Headteacher will:

- be an exemplary KS2 teacher
