Sheffield South East Trust seeks a Headteacher to start in September 2018, at Manor Lodge Primary and Nursery School. 

The school serves a diverse and established community in the south east of the city. In December 2016 the School voluntarily converted to academy status becoming part of Sheffield South East Trust (SSET), which unites five local schools (Wybourn Primary, Phillimore Primary, Norfolk Primary and Acres Hill Primary). These schools work closely together for the benefit of the children and communities they serve. There are many opportunities for support, training and networking between the schools. 

Manor Lodge Primary is committed to being highly inclusive and strives to deliver a truly creative curriculum. Early Years education is firmly embedded and the school has a newly refurbished FS base. The school has extensive grounds and newer building additions. Manor Lodge Primary is a vibrant and outward-looking school. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to work with all stakeholders to move the school forward within a supportive local Trust. The Trust aims for schools to grow and flourish, by being individual and closely aligned with the community, whilst having strong networks and capacity with other similar local schools in SSET.

We are looking for a dynamic and resilient Headteacher who has high expectations for all pupils, which will lead to achieving further high standards and pupil progress. The successful candidate will be innovative and resourceful in leadership style, nurturing and challenging to raising the profile of Manor Lodge Primary from a sound starting point. The ability to communicate clearly and build effective relationships is essential.  

In return the School and Trust can offer enthusiastic and motivated pupils who want to learn and achieve, alongside hardworking, dedicated and supportive staff and governors.
