Job summary

These are exciting times at Thomas Bullock Church of England Primary Academy. Although our last inspection judgement was ‘requires improvement’, we are rapidly improving provision in order to achieve a ‘good’ outcome next time around.

Our school is well supported by the Thomas Bullock Trust which gives a substantial yearly grant to enhance the creative curriculum. We believe that this will give the successful candidate scope for innovative thinking and, where appropriate, creative management within a landscape of tight central funding.
