We are looking for someone who:

  • Is an outstanding classroom practitioner with the ability to inspire and support teaching and learning.
  • Has a proven record of leading and managing school improvement initiatives in-line with the school’s vision and priorities.
  • Is committed to improving outcomes which narrow the gaps between those children most vulnerable to poor outcomes and others.
  • Has great resilience in the face of challenge.
  • Has aspirations of excellence for all children in all areas of provision, ensuring all children achieve their full potential.
  • Has enthusiasm, energy and a great sense of humour.

We can offer:

  • A lively and creative school, committed to creating lifelong learners.
  • A supportive and friendly environment, with a dedicated and enthusiastic staff.
  • Kind, caring, motivated and well behaved children who love to engage in the life of the school.
  • A knowledgeable and supportive governing body that is committed to the on-going development of the school.
