Larkrise Primary School
Larkrise is seeking an inspirational leader to drive rapid and sustained improvement
Salary: L18-L24 Contract type: Full time
Start date: 1st January 2020 Contract type: Permanent
We are a popular primary school at the heart of our genuinely diverse community in East Oxford with 437 pupils on roll aged between 3 and 11. In partnership with a values-driven MAT, a skilled governing body, a highly supportive community, and a dedicated staff, we are proud to provide a happy, caring, child-centred environment, celebrating many different cultures. Together we have created a school where children can feel secure, stimulated and happy.
Visitors to our school are struck by our welcoming and inclusive environment where our dynamic, reflective and committed team of staff always put children at the heart of everything they do. Feedback from local secondary schools has told us that their staff can tell a Larkrise student through their participation, confidence and attitude to learning.
After a period of unprecedented staff and leadership changes, Larkrise was given an Inadequate grading by Ofsted in its last inspection. We are looking for rapid improvement, transforming Larkrise into a consistently excellent school. We do not underestimate the challenges ahead but we strongly believe we have all the pieces in place to help our new Headteacher lead Larkrise on its improvement journey.
We are looking for a Headteacher who:
• is an inspirational leader with the energy and vision to lead rapid school improvement
• is passionate and unrelenting in developing a culture of excellence in teaching and learning
• believes in the potential of all children and staff
• has a strong sense of purpose
This is a great opportunity for the right school leader. Come and visit Larkrise – meet us, our staff and our children – fall in love with our wonderful school and consider whether you are the right person to take us forwards.
Governors will be available to show applicants around the school on 4th, 5th, 6th, 11th and 13th September. To arrange to visit Larkrise or to speak to one of the co-chairs please email email@example.com.
