Job description

Tebay Primary School is looking to recruit a Headteacher.

Contract: Full time permanent with 0.6 teaching commitment

Tebay is a beautiful Cumbrian village, located 18 miles south of Penrith and 12 miles north of Kendal just off the M6 in Cumbria.

This is a fantastic opportunity for an ambitious individual aspiring to take up their first Headship. Cumbria Education Trust is looking for someone to provide professional leadership for this small but friendly rural school, ensuring a high quality education for all its pupils.

This is a great prospect for the successful candidate to take this school on the next stage of its educational journey. We want Tebay Primary School to be the best primary school it can be, operating to the highest standards and delivering the best outcomes for its children. The Headteacher will play a vital role in this journey with a teaching commitment as well as the leadership responsibility of the school.

At Tebay Primary School we aspire to provide a vibrant learning setting where each child is given the opportunity to grow and stretch their boundaries so they can experience the pleasure of achievement and how success feels.

In return, Cumbria Education Trust offers the successful candidate to be part of a wider, collaborative team of Headteachers and Senior Leaders who work together, are part of the operational decision making across the Trust and support each other in a range of areas as required. The opportunity for high quality CPD is also available.

Cumbria Education Trust is a not-for-profit charitable organisation. It was formed in 2015 in a response to an invitation from the Department for Education. Cumbria Education Trust is one of the first school based MATs in North Cumbria - we currently have six schools within our family; four primary and two secondary schools.

Our purpose is to deliver outstanding educational provision and ensure all pupils/students receive high quality teaching and learning opportunities.

Our aim is for each Cumbria Education Trust academy to demonstrate consistent year-on-year improvement. We believe in the importance of working with others to share knowledge and best practice and we want all our pupils/students to develop a thirst for knowledge. We are passionate about putting young people first and equipping them for success in the future.

By achieving our aim, we can enable every young person to reach their potential.

As a place to live, Cumbria takes some beating, from the stunning beauty of the coast, to the challenge of the Lake District, and the history of Hadrian’s Wall, Cumbria offers something for everyone.

If you believe you can make a positive contribution to the development of this school and the Trust, then we would be delighted to hear from you.

Closing date: Monday 16th October
Interviews: before Friday 20th October
