Do you want to have an enduring impact on children’s education?
Do you want to provide exceptional opportunities for learning?
We are looking for a passionate and inspiring leader with a clear strategic vision for improving the school's effectiveness and raising standards and expectations through strong and exceptional leadership and management.
St Margaret’s Primary Academy is committed to developing lifelong learners who are responsible citizens that have limitless possibilities for their future. St Margaret’s caters for children between 3 and 11 and at present there are over 400 children on roll. Our purposeful, relevant and enquiry-based curriculum provides all our children with the skills and experiences to allow them to embrace an ever changing world.
The school was recently judged to ‘require improvement’ by OFSTED, with three areas graded ‘good’, and we are working hard to ensure that we are judged as a ‘good’ school for the next inspection. We need a committed headteacher who will continue to build on the current successes and develop a clear strategic vision for improving the school's effectiveness and raising standards. You will be passionate and committed to bring about the necessary changes and will relish the challenges ahead.
We can offer:
• A busy and friendly school (extract from 2018 Ofsted report: ‘Pupils are keen to learn and show consideration for one another’)
• Supportive colleagues
• An exciting challenge where you can truly make your mark
• The benefits of being part of the forward thinking REAch2 Academy Trust - one of the most successful primary Trusts in the country
