We are looking for someone to provide professional development and leadership of music at Gallions.

Open Until:

Posted: 07/07/2015

Contract type: Permanent, term time only (39 weeks
per year), 5 days per week but open to discussing part-time options for
the right candidate

Salary: PO2 (take home salary £27,594-29,840 depending on experience)

Gallions Primary School is a community school for children aged 3-11,
based in Beckton in the London Borough of Newham. Despite the school
being situated in an area identified as within the top 5% for
deprivation in the country, Gallions has gained a reputation as an
example of best practice in a deprived area. Music is central to the
school’s educational philosophy and this approach addresses the
different learning styles that children possess, making learning
particularly accessible to the substantial number of children whose
first language is not English (62%) and those who have a special
educational need or disability. 

We are looking for someone to provide professional development and
leadership of music at Gallions. This role requires someone who can
identify priority areas to focus on and who has the vision to address
them creatively and strategically, to ensure that all children have
access to the highest quality provision and musical opportunities,
regardless of background or ability.

The Music Development Manager will work to build and strengthen
relationships with current and potential donors, complete grant
applications for funding and manage ongoing communications with funders,
and find new and creative ways to gain support, whether financial or
other, for the development of the extensive music programme at Gallions
Primary School.

Start date and working hours

Start date for this position is negotiable, although the post-holder would ideally be available to start in early September.

Although office hours are normally 09:00-17:00, there may
occasionally be the need to work different or additional hours as
discussed with your line manager.

How to apply

Please contact Rosamond De Vile on rdevile@gallions.newham.sch.uk if
you would like to arrange a visit to the school and request further
information, a full job description, and details of how to apply.

Application deadline: Monday 13th of July (5pm). Interviews for shortlisted candidates will take place the following week.
