The governors of Skidby Church of England VC Primary School, are offering an exciting opportunity for an inspirational and dynamic Headteacher to lead our church school towards excellence within a rural community.

Skidby is a small conservation village and civil parish in the East Riding of Yorkshire, situated some 6 miles north-west of Hull city centre and 5 miles south of Beverley. It lies in a mainly rural area with several working farms and is also a commuter village for workers in Hull and Cottingham, given the easy links to the A63/M62 west, the A1079 to York, and the A164 to the Humber Bridge and the south.

Our school has 71 pupils in 3 classes and currently is rated “good” by both Ofsted and SIAMs.

As governors, we are looking for someone who:

  • can lead an outward facing, vibrant school at the heart of this rural community

  • can be creative and inspirational to further develop the potential for maximising outside resources to enhance and extend wider learning
  • can inspire, nurture/challenge all pupils and staff to realise their full potential
  • is fully committed to ongoing staff development for all, to move the school from ‘good’ towards ‘outstanding’
  • has the ability to maintain and strengthen links with governors, parents, the church and wider community
  • will support, promote and fully embed our Christian value base

In return, we offer:

  • a warm, supportive and friendly environment with happy children who feel safe, feel listened to and are encouraged to make good progress academically and become confident well rounded young people
  • the support of a hardworking staff team and governors who embrace change and are excited about the opportunities of ensuring all pupils make good progress and achieve their full potential

You will be offered a comprehensive three year induction package.

Appointment is subject to a DBS check. We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
