Job description


Roxton Voluntary Aided  Church of England Primary School


1st September 2018 (or sooner): Salary - Group 1 (L6-L12)
A secondment or fixed-term contract would be considered

Following the retirement of the Headteacher, the Governing Body and Diocese of St Albans Board of Education are seeking to appoint a successor who can build on the school's recent progress following a period of interim Headship and an Interim Executive Board (IEB). We are looking for an ambitious, energetic and enthusiastic candidate, with the motivation to take the school forward.

Roxton VA Church of England Primary School is located in the small rural village of Roxton on the outskirts of Bedford. As a Voluntary Aided Church School, we pride ourselves on what we have to offer our children; a caring and nurturing Christian environment, a stimulating and exciting curriculum, a range of outdoor learning resources and a dedicated team of staff committed to the pupils.

We have positive relationships between adults and our children that helps to promote a culture of respect and courtesy in the school. We always aim to start from 'where we are' and not 'where we think we should be', thus ensuring every child is given the best opportunities suited to them.

Governors invite applications from Head teachers and aspiring Head teachers who will: 

  • Provide clear      and determined leadership, with the ability to nurture and inspire others 
  • Ensure standards      are raised to be at least in line with national standards at Key Stage 2      and to accelerate the progress of boys
  • Undertake      thorough and robust evaluation to develop a school improvement plan that      secures a 'Good' outcome at the next Ofsted and SIAMS inspections
  • Continue to work      with all staff to enhance their impact on learning and achievement
  • Ensure that the      needs of every child are met and that they are inspired to meet their true      potential
  • Ensure that the      school has robust systems for safeguarding
  • Develop and      implement a Christian vision for education that reflects both the National      Church of England and Diocesan Vision for Education
  • Evaluate use,      and impact, of Pupil Premium

There will be a teaching commitment.

What we can offer you:

  • Excellent      support from the Diocesan Board of Education and Bedford Borough Local      Authority
  • A good and supportive      governing body
  • A commitment to      CPD
  • Support and      mentorship from an experienced Headteacher (a local or national leader of      Education)
  • Support and      challenge from a Local Authority School Improvement Officer
  • A fully      comprehensive Induction Programme of support
  • A school on a      secure financial footing
  • Enthusiastic and      motivated children and staff
  • A truly      satisfying role

How to Apply

Please send a completed application form and a covering letter, as detailed in the letter from the Chair of the IEB.
Your covering letter should be no more than 2 sides of A4 point 11.
