What skills and experience we're looking for

We are seeking a strong leader who is ready to build on the solid foundations created by our current Head Teacher, who is retiring after 14 years. During their tenure, they built a successful and inclusive Junior school.

The recent Ofsted inspection in September 2022, in which SEND was quoted as a strength, confirmed that it continues to be a good school.

The governors are looking for a Head Teacher who can continue to lead the school into the next phase of our journey.

What the school offers its staff

As a school we aim:

  • To provide strong and effective leadership and a motivated staff, working in partnership with children, parents, governors and the community.
  • To maintain the highest standards of teaching and learning and to provide a well planned and stimulating curriculum for all our children.
  • To provide, manage and utilise resources necessary for all aspects of learning.
  • To provide a safe, stimulating environment where all children and adults feel valued for the contribution they make.
  • To enable children to develop respect for themselves and for others and to promote a caring, positive attitude towards the community and their local environment.
  • To prepare children for life in its widest sense, enabling them to take their place in society as fulfilled committed individuals able to play their part in local and wider affairs.
  • To give equal opportunities to all our pupils so that they may become contributors to a society free from all forms of prejudice and discrimination.

Croftlands Junior School was created in 1974 when the existing primary school was divided into two schools to cater for Infant and Junior children separately. It is a Local Authority Community School, sharing its extensive site with Croftlands Infant School and situated in a quiet South Lakeland market town close to the Lake District National Park. In December 2018, we moved into a brand new building on the same site. The grounds include a large playing field, a playground and a wooded wildlife area and are under continual development and improvement.
