Thank you for looking at our advert. We are the governors of Okeford Fitzpaine Primary School in Dorset and we are looking to appoint a Principal for our lovely village school. We have great children, a very supportive parent body, governors with great experience and we are being helped by the Southern Academy trust to be the best school we can possibly be. We would like you to think about being our Principal.
The role of Principal in our school is the most key appointment we will make. We are looking for someone who can confidently lead teaching and learning in the school from a secure knowledge base but more importantly from a position of having shown they have the capacity to lead school improvement. Our Principal will be someone that staff and pupils can look at to model the best in the classroom and lead others to improve their own work. The role is full time with 0.6 Teaching. Our Principal is the public face of the school, the guardian of its Christian ethos on a day to day basis and someone who will reflect the very best of what our school does and has to offer in its community.
If you think you would like to take the next step in school leadership and work in a school where you can truly make a difference then this is the one for you. Please feel free to send us an application or if you would like to know more you can make contact with us through the school for an informal discussion.
Please visit our website www.okeford.dorset.sch.uk for further information about the school.
