What skills and experience we're looking for

Detailed information can be found within the Person Specification.

What the school offers its staff

We have a pre-school on site and there are excellent links with all local providers. The curriculum is rich and much work goes on to encourage and support multiyear curriculum events and learning. Most children proceed through to St Osmund’s Middle School and on to The Thomas Hardye School in Dorchester.

The Governing Body is experienced and supportive and we also have a PTA that generates considerable additional funding for the school. The Chair of the Local Governing Body meets with the Head on a weekly basis and is visible and accessible to the staff.

We have an excellent team of staff. They benefit from being in a bigger family of schools in the Wessex Multi-Academy Trust offering many opportunities for professional development and further career progression. As a school leader new to post you will get extensive support from the Governing Body and from the Multi-Academy Trust.

Commitment to safeguarding

Wessex Multi-Academy Trust is committed to Equal Opportunities and to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. The successful applicant will be subject to an enhanced DBS check.
