Are you a remarkable leader that wants more?

More opportunity to inspire our children to choose a REMARKABLE LIFE.

Ashingdon Primary Academy is part of a family of schools brought together by one common vision and passionate belief that each and every child can lead a remarkable life. An excellent education transforms lives and every pupil who attends one of our schools is given the support, care and opportunity they need to flourish. The academy is now looking to appoint an ambitious Headteacher for September 2021. The role would be ideal for an existing Headteacher or an experienced Deputy Headteacher with proven impact of school improvement. Could this be you?

The academy dates back to 1873 and is steeped in history and heritage alongside its excellent facilities including a large sports field and a heated swimming pool! The academy is a key part of the village and local community and benefits from a small school feel and engaged parents.

Sadly our current Executive Headteacher has secured an exciting promotion outside of the Trust and will be leaving us in August 2021. We are looking for an experienced leader who can build on the good work completed so far. You will be driven by continuous school improvement and will lead the next phase of our school’s journey to Good/Outstanding.  You will have a proven track record in raising standards whilst ensuring our vibrant and happy environment is maintained.

We have committed staff who are willing to go above and beyond, children who are kind and polite and who love to learn and parents who are incredibly supportive.  Our new Headteacher will enjoy the autonomy of leadership rooted in the local community, whilst working in partnership with the regional cluster of academies and AET’s National Director of Primary Schools, Lauren Costello, with support from a committed local governing board.

AET has led the way in the response to the covid pandemic, with children at the centre. Investment in IT equipment for our most deprived learners and high quality virtual learning for all meant education continued. Robust risk procedures were followed to keep our children and staff safe and we shared best practice to support each other.  Using what we’ve learned over the last few years, we now have an extraordinarily ambitious vision of a new model of education for the future to be rolled out over the next few years.

Join us to be part of something special and inspire their remarkable.

Closing date: Friday 5 March 2021

Interview date: Friday 19 March 2021 and Thursday 25 March 2021
