The governors seek to appoint a reflective, inquisitive and collaborative headteacher who will build on this foundation and continue to celebrate and promote the diversity of the school and its community. Candidates will have an innate enjoyment of learning and will work with the leadership team to support staff to seek out and create opportunities for their own professional development.

What the school offers its staff

Westways Primary is a large and vibrant community school, located close to the University of Sheffield, the city centre and the stunning countryside of the Peak District National Park. The school is proud to serve a diverse community. Twenty-seven languages are spoken at our school.

Our children are passionate and independent learners who work hard and respect one another and the environment. We celebrate achievement and progress across subjects and skills both in the classroom and in the wider world.

Westways is in the process of developing an innovative and challenging curriculum.

Subject leads have designated time and external support to grow their roles as middle leaders. We are also continuing to build a supportive and proactive pastoral system, working together with pupils, parents, staff and external agencies.
