The governing body of Medlock Primary School are seeking an exceptional leader to join our highly committed, passionate whole school community.

We have made great progress regarding pupil outcomes and are proud of what we have achieved so far but recognise that there is still work to be done to progress our OFSTED evaluation from “Requires Improvement” to “Good”.

  • Who has the capability to take the school forward from “Requires Improvement” to “Good”;
  • Who can complement our existing strategic vision and aims but bring a fresh outlook and purpose to the school;
  • Who can be empathetic and co-operative but is also a strong decision maker who will lead by example.

In return we can offer you:

  • A community that is keen to support the school, and pupils eager to learn, proud of their school and encouraged to respect themselves and others;
  • A team of enthusiastic and dedicated staff;
  • A positive, creative and welcoming environment where children thrive;
  • A supportive governing body;
  • A modern building with excellent facilities.

If you believe you possess the qualities to take on this exciting challenge then we would be delighted to hear from you.
