What skills and experience we're looking for

As Head of School, you will be responsible for Teaching and Learning within the school. We are looking for the successful candidate to start in September 2023 or January 2024. Although this is a permanent position, applications for a one year secondment will be considered.

Culmstock Primary is a wonderful community school, full of energetic and enthusiastic children who thrive with staff who nurture, care and plan for their learning step by step. At the last inspection in July 2022, the school was judged to be a ‘good’ school.

The School aims to develop children both academically and pastorally; to develop them as kind, resilient, independent citizens and motivated learners who love school and have an appetite for lifelong learning.

The Head of School will have responsibility for the organisation and monitoring of the curriculum and for maintaining high standards of staff and pupil conduct. The role will require collaboration within and beyond the Federation and a close working relationship with the Executive Headteacher, Federation Business Manager and the Federation SenCo is an essential part of the role. The role would suit a teacher who has had some leadership experience.

What the school offers its staff

Culmstock Primary is a thriving and happy school set in a beautiful village in an easy to access location. You will be joining an experienced and supportive leadership team who work for the good of their individual schools and for the Federation as a whole.
