What skills and experience we're looking for

The Governors of this caring, vibrant and popular community school seek an exceptional Headteacher with a proven track record of raising achievement for every pupil.

Established in 2001, Fynamore Primary School is a 14-class primary school (NOR 407) which is very proud of its highly inclusive ethos.

Following a recent ‘Good’ Ofsted inspection, and pending our current Headteacher hanging up her headteacher hat and moving onto exciting new challenges, we are looking for a dynamic and inspirational leader with the commitment to build on the school’s inclusive provision and lead it to its next exciting phase of development from January 2025.

Our Headteacher will:

  • Enjoy considerable autonomy
  • Lead our school towards a shared and inclusive vision of excellence
  • Drive and inspire the highest standards of teaching and learning
  • Provide strong, visible and inspirational leadership
  • Nurture positive and caring relationships with our children

What the school offers its staff

As a school we offer:

  • A vibrant and positive environment
  • Happy, considerate and enthusiastic pupils
  • An experienced, committed and hard-working Senior Leadership Team
  • An exceptional team of teachers and support staff
  • An effective, supportive and knowledgeable Governing Body
  • A good reputation with parents and the local community

Commitment to safeguarding

This school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

All applicants will be subject to a Disclosure and Barring Service check before appointment is confirmed.
