Headteacher - Healing Primary School
This post arises following the imminent retirement of the Headteacher who has been in post for seven years.
We are now looking to appoint a Headteacher who has the vision, inspirational leadership and skill to take the school even further. We are interested to hear from experienced Headteachers and those looking for their first headship.
Healing Primary School is a popular, 1.5 intake school situated in the heart of the village of Healing which is located about 3 miles outside Grimsby in North East Lincolnshire. We have 335 children on roll and we have been over-subscribed for many years. Both standards and relationships are at the heart of the school and our expectations of children and staff is ambitiously high. Outcomes for children are excellent across the school. In 2017 our combined RWM for KS2 was 89%. The school’s most recent Ofsted was in May 2017 and the school was graded Good overall with Outstanding Behaviour and Safety.
Healing Primary School is part of Healing Multi - Academy Trust. Since April 2014, the Trust has been an accredited academy sponsor for primary and secondary schools.
The school works closely with other schools, including Trust partner schools and the Humber Teaching School. The current Headteacher and senior leaders make a significant contribution to a wide range of Teaching School programmes, including school to school support and professional development.
A significant amount of information about the school, the Trust and the Humber Teaching School, including Ofsted information, is available on the following websites and online; www.healingprimary.co.uk www.healingmultiacademytrust.co.uk www.humberteachingschool.co.uk
