What skills and experience we're looking for

We are looking for an inclusive, inspirational and values-driven headteacher who has the strategic vision to lead our school on the next stage of its journey.

Blackburn Primary is at the heart of a warm and welcoming community. We are proud of our children and seek, through our curriculum, to inspire them to make a positive contribution to society.

We are looking for an aspirational, nurturing and emotionally intelligent leader who will build upon our existing strengths to ensure the school delivers the very best possible outcomes for our children. You will have high ambitions for staff and pupils alike, and share our determination that every child achieves their full potential.

Our new headteacher will:

  • have senior leadership experience and the ability to demonstrate involvement in whole school improvement
  • maintain and further develop our strong links with parents and the wider community
  • be able to articulate a progressive vision for the school and have the skills and qualities to take our staff with them on that journey

In return, we can offer the successful candidate:

  • the opportunity to work within a caring, creative and dynamic school culture, with a dedicated, motivated and enthusiastic staff team
  • the support of experienced governors who are committed to your ongoing professional development
  • the opportunity to make a real difference to the lives of our wonderful and inspiring children

School visits are strongly encouraged. To arrange an appointment, please contact Catherine Clayton, Business Manager, on 01709 740412 (see the candidate pack for available times). To discuss the role informally, please ask to speak to the current headteacher, Mark Bennett.
