A wonderful opportunity for a caring and enthusiastic professional seeking their first or second Headteacher post to join our stable, high-achieving, family-orientated small village school. Due to the retirement of our long-standing Headteacher, the Governors of Barkston & Syston CE Primary School are seeking to appoint a talented, inspirational and passionate leader for our church school.

We can offer:

  • Enthusiastic, kind and well-behaved children who are committed to learning and supporting one another
  • Dedicated, experienced and talented teaching and support staff
  • A diverse and forward-thinking governing body
  • Very supportive parents and an active and enthusiastic PTA (Friends of Barkston School)
  • A positive and active learning environment
  • A vibrant church school at the heart of the local community

You will need to have:

  • The highest expectations for children’s attainment, personal development and behaviour
  • A clear vision of excellence in primary education, with an ability to think strategically and lead the school through the next phase of its development
  • The ability to develop enquiring minds and foster an enjoyment of learning
  • An understanding of effective leadership and an ability to empower and motivate a dedicated team of staff
  • A desire to develop and nurture positive relationships with the whole school family
  • A will to promote a Christian ethos and inclusive values

If you are energetic, with the focus and drive to develop us academically and pastorally, we would love to hear from you.
