  • Proven leadership and management skills
  • A clear vision to develop and lead our school with staff, children, parents and governors
  • A commitment to ensuring the environment for teaching and learning empowers both children and staff to achieve their highest potential
  • A clear commitment to promoting a culture of creativity in teaching and learning
  • Have knowledge and experience of best practice and procedures in school for safeguarding children and young people.

In return we can offer:

  • A school with excellent relationships between children and staff
