The Governors wish to appoint another inspirational and enthusiastic Headteacher to lead our fully-inclusive, thriving rural school with children fully immersed in their education into the future. We are looking for the right individual, who may be a current Headteacher, or an experienced Senior Leader looking for their first Headship.

Our children and school community are looking for a Headteacher who will:

Lead by example – with integrity, creativity, and clarity – inspiring and influencing other stakeholders to provide the best educational environment for our children.
Prioritise the wellbeing, resilience and achievements of all children and staff and put this at the heart of all decisions.
Create a stimulating school learning environment, including our outdoor play and learning environment (OPAL), encouraging enquiring minds and the development of lifelong learning skills and attitudes.
Demand ambitious standards for all pupils, overcoming disadvantage and advancing equality, instilling a strong sense of ownership and accountability from staff for the impact their work has on pupils’ outcomes.
Create an ethos within which an already skilled staff team are motivated and supported to research and develop their own skills and subject knowledge, and to support each other.
Be visible and accessible, engaging positively with children, staff, parents, Governors, and the community.
Provide an inclusive safe, calm, and well-ordered environment for all pupils and staff, focused on safeguarding pupils and developing their exemplary behaviour in school and in the wider society.
With Governors, evaluate the school’s performance and identify the priorities for continuous improvement and raising of standards.
Develop an outward-facing school capable of collaborating in partnership with other schools and organisations to champion best practices and excellent outcomes for pupils.
Ensure that the child protection and safeguarding policies and procedures adopted by the governing body are fully implemented and followed by all staff.
In return we offer:

Confident, happy children, who enjoy their time in school and are eager to learn and succeed.
Talented, committed, professional staff who are open to development and new ideas.
A fully supportive Governing Body who are ambitious for the school and its pupils, offering challenge and support.
A growing school with expanding numbers and exciting development opportunities set within a green spacious area.
A thriving school community with supportive parents and an active PSA.
