Dollis Primary School


Deputy Headteacher


If your next step on your leadership journey  is to accelerate the transformation of a school under an experienced and inspirational leader, then we are just what you’re looking for.


Dollis Primary was created by the merger in April 2019 of Infant and Junior schools that have shared a site for decades. You will be the cross-school English Lead and SENDCo while working alongside our new Head to forge a single-school culture which can rise to the challenge set by governors to deliver sustainably improved pupil outcomes as rapidly as possible.


Following the resignation of one of our two deputy heads, the Governing Body reassessed the leadership needs of our school and determined that a continuation of the  structure of having one Headteacher working together with two Deputy Headteachers would deliver strength in depth at the top, while injecting new thinking and fresh ideas.


This is the role for a Deputy Headteacher who hungers for greater responsibility and enduring impacts. You must share the Headteacher’s philosophy that our duty to pupils to ensure they achieve their full potential is sacrosanct. Dollis Primary has a challenging intake with high EAL levels and significant deprivation. Despite the legacy of Covid-19, we are totally committed to the ambition that, when children leave our school, they are primed for the next stage of their learning, having grown within a nurturing, supportive community.


We can offer you high quality professional development, well-being support and health days, and fantastic pupils with a thirst for knowledge. So, if you possess the NASCO training award and can demonstrate experience of school improvement in English at KS1 and KS2, this is the school for you!

Candidates who wish to visit our school are most welcome to do so. We have set aside a morning and afternoon session on 29th March , 31st March and 21st April so that everyone has the opportunity to see our school in action. This will include an informal chat with our Headteacher, Rosetta Dyer.  Please email our School Business Manager, Judith Wadsworth on to organise a time to visit.

Candidate packs can be found below and completed forms should be returned by noon on Thursday 22nd April.


Interviews: 6th and 7th May.


We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
