Balfour Primary School is a large multi-form entry school in the centre of Brighton.

Since being judged as a school requiring Improvement in November 2017, leaders have brought about significant improvement. The school has always been held in the highest regard in the community and it is vital that this view is sustained and re- strengthened during what has been, and is, a challenging period.

In addition, whilst amalgamation of the infant and junior schools took place 6 years ago, there is still much to be done to bring the two key stages together.

  • A deep knowledge and understanding of current developments in teaching and learning to sustain and develop student progress and raise attainment
  • A proven commitment to Quality First Teaching and providing a diverse and challenging curriculum for all children
  • The ability to motivate, challenge and engage collaboratively with the school stakeholders to ensure the highest levels of achievement 
  • Skills to manage change effectively within a complex environment 
  • Presence to be an influential ambassador in the local and wider community 
  • Ability to translate our vision in to positive outcomes
