Job summary

The person appointed will be an experienced middle leader within an existing Primary School and able to act as a key leader across the Primary Section as well as provide direct line management to staff within Years R to 3 or Year 4, 5 and 6. The successful candidate will work with a dedicated, and growing, team of Assistant Headteachers and Phase Leaders to support the development of our (relatively) new provision.

Not only is our Primary Section very popular and heavily oversubscribed with parents, but also with staff. Our recent advert for Primary Classroom teachers resulted in over 60 applications.

We operate an “Outstanding” Pre-School and Nursery with reduced fees and preferential access for Mayfield staff.

In September 2016, OfSTED conducted a section 5 inspection and found all areas to be ‘good’ and in summer 2018 the school secured it’s best ever results across all key stages. All staff members have the opportunity to work across all sections of the school depending on their interest, skills and experience. During this period of growth, we have a number of vacancies in all sections and truly believe “our only limitation is our ambition”.
