Date posted:
Contract type: Full Time
Salary: L18 - L26 with potential enhancement for the right candidate.
Contract term: Permanent

We have a wonderful site and facilities, an experienced and dedicated staff team and a supportive community. Our ethos is to nurture every child as an individual, whether they join us at six months old in our Nursery, or at age eleven in year six. Our aspirations for our children are high, and we encourage them to set the same standards for themselves.

Our Nursery was recently graded Outstanding by OFSTED, and in 2014 our school was considered Outstanding.
However, the Governing Body is aware that maintaining those standards is, and will continue to be, a challenge. The current educational and financial climate has been difficult for many schools and ours is no exception. The School Leadership Team under the direction of the current head have addressed the finances with support from the staff, maintaining good morale and excellent parental feedback while, crucially, improving outcomes for our children.

Our Governing Body understands these challenges will continue, and believes it has the experience and skills to support our next Head Teacher to continue this good work. We are looking for a Head Teacher with the drive, skills and enthusiasm to work with us and the whole school team to continue this improvement in standards whilst retaining the happy and supportive atmosphere that allows our pupils and staff to thrive.

We welcome visits to the school, should you wish to find out for yourself what makes us so special. If you would like to take up this opportunity, please call Ross Laird at Academicis on 01223 907979, 07901 585959 or rlaird@academicis.co.uk to arrange a tour with the Chair of Governors.

Closing date: Monday 9th December
