Are you a remarkable leader that wants more?

More opportunity to inspire our children to choose a REMARKABLE LIFE.

Plumberow Primary Academy is part of a family of schools brought together by one common vision and passionate belief that each and every child can lead a remarkable life. An excellent education transforms lives and every pupil who attends one of our schools is given the support, care and opportunity they need to flourish. Whether you are a senior leader working towards your first headship or a Head of School/Headteacher seeking a new challenge this is an amazing opportunity to lead our school.  Which is where you come in!

We are a large 3 form Academy, based in Hockley, Essex located between Chelmsford and Southend on Sea. We have facilities that we are proud of, including two halls, a spacious ICT suite, a large field, a designated cooking room, a well maintained library and an outdoor swimming pool. Teaching areas are both safe and well maintained, providing a stimulating working environment for the pupils.

Sadly, both the Executive Headteacher and Head of School have secured exciting promotions outside of the Trust and will be leaving us in August 2021. So we are now looking for an experienced leader who can build on the excellent work completed so far.

You will be passionate about achieving the best possible outcomes for all our children. You will care about the whole school community and will value our staff and the contribution they make.  As our new Headteacher, you will expect the children to leave Plumberow with resilience & confidence, and with a love of learning which will prepare them to realise their potential on the next stage of their journey.

We have committed staff who are willing to go above and beyond, children who are kind and polite and who love to learn and parents who are incredibly supportive.  Our new Headteacher will enjoy the autonomy of leadership rooted in the local community, whilst working in partnership with the regional cluster of academies, you will also have support from a committed local governing board.

AET has led the way in the response to the covid pandemic, with children at the centre. Investment in IT equipment for our most deprived learners and high quality virtual learning for all meant education continued. Robust risk procedures were followed to keep our children and staff safe and we shared best practice to support each other.  Using what we’ve learned over the last few years, we now have an extraordinarily ambitious vision of a new model of education for the future to be rolled out over the next few years.

Join us to be part of something special and inspire their remarkable.

Closing date: Friday 21 May 2021
