We are seeking to appoint a talented and dynamic Head of School at Dundry CE Primary School from the start of the 2019-20 academic year. As well as having day-to-day oversight of the leadership and management of the school, you will also work closely, with the support of the Executive Headteacher, to develop an exciting, happy, successful and creative school.
Dundry Primary School is a small school situated on Dundry Hill, enjoying spectacular views over Bristol and the Severn Bridges towards Wales. The school has been on this site and serving the community of Dundry since 1858 and continues to enjoy strong links with the local church. There are currently three mixed aged classes and 76 pupils on roll. The school was graded as requires improvement by Ofsted in Jan 2019.
The school is part of Midsomer Norton Schools’ Partnership (MNSP) multi academy Trust based in Midsomer Norton, Somerset. You will be joining a very ambitious and forward thinking organisation, so we are seeking outstanding candidates who want to develop themselves to support our educational vision, provide strong leadership and effective support to colleagues and raise standards for our pupils.
This role includes a 3 day teaching commitment in a mixed Y2/3 class. This would be an exciting opportunity for an ambitious existing Senior Leader to work alongside the experienced Executive Headteacher to develop excellent skills and to further their career development.
Our ideal candidate will be an outstanding teacher and a strategic leader with a resilient character and strong personal drive. A belief in the potential of all children to excel regardless of their starting points, and the power of high expectations of self and others is an essential for this role.
