Head Teacher job summary

Tollerton Primary School is looking to appoint an enthusiastic, innovative and highly motivated Head Teacher to this wonderful school and community, to build on its existing success and lead it into an exciting future. 


There is a supportive environment at Tollerton Primary School where the focus is on developing the whole child through enriching their life at school with a vibrant curriculum. In recent years extensive work has been undertaken to respond to changes in curriculum expectations. The individual ambition of the school is supported by Equals Trust. The new Head Teacher will become a member of the Trust’s Leadership Team which is made up of each school’s Head Teacher and the Central Trust Team. Opportunities for peer-to-peer support and cross-school collaboration will ensure the successful candidate has a strong network of support to enable them to achieve the very best for the school.


A dedicated staff and Governing Body are supported in their efforts by engaged and enthusiastic parents. The school is a founding member of Equals Trust, a collaborative Multi Academy Trust. 



You will have:


·       A clear vision for the future of our school, further developing its ethos and the safe and caring atmosphere that currently exists

·       Strong leadership qualities that will motivate and challenge in the next stage of the school’s development

·       Good emotional intelligence to ensure good communication and relationships with all members of the school community

·       The ability to lead a strong and experienced team with complementary skills

·       Be able to inspire and work in partnership with pupils, staff, parents/carers, governors and other stakeholders

In return we can offer you:


·       The opportunity to drive our successful school forward

·       Clear autonomy as the Head Teacher of the school with the added benefit of support and guidance from other leaders in the Trust.

·       Dedicated and highly motivated staff who have strong relationships with pupils, parents/carers and the local community

·       An active and forward-thinking Governing Body

·       Professional development, collaboration and ongoing support through being a partner in Equals Trust. Via a place on the Leadership Group you will have the opportunity to contribute to and decide Trust strategy; especially that related to teaching and learning.

·       A school that has had a very recent OSFTED inspection (still to be published) which it was pleased with and confirmed its own (and the Trust’s) self-evaluation



Visits to our school are highly recommended. Please come and visit us to see what we can offer you in the next stage of your career. School visits will be hosted by the current Head Teacher Jon Wells – call him on 0115 9372944 to arrange a visit.  You can also speak with the Trust School Improvement Lead, Stuart Edmonds by e mailing him at silead@equalstrust.org to arrange a time for an informal chat. You can also contact the Trust CEO, Phil Palmer by e mailing him at ceo@equalstrust.org Applications must be received by midday on Tuesday 18th April 2023. Interviews will be held on 25th and 26th April 2023.
