What skills and experience we're looking for

We are seeking a new Headteacher to join our school on 1 September 2024.

The Headteacher should be able to demonstrate the ability to develop a shared vision, which inspires and motivates pupils, staff and all other members of the school’s communities. This vision should include core educational values, moral purpose and be inclusive of all stakeholders’ beliefs and values as stated in the job description.

What the school offers its staff

Mylor Bridge Community Primary School is in the popular village of Mylor Bridge located within easy distance of the nearby towns of Falmouth, Redruth, and Truro. The school works closely with our local community, including: visiting local places of worship; collaborating with the University of Exeter; working with local community groups; and supporting village functions.

Our school boasts modern, well-equipped and well-maintained facilities – owned and managed by PFI with a full time on-site caretaker, all of which are conducive to promoting a positive environment to support learning.

The financial position of the school is positive, with a healthy 2 year financial forecast.

The successful applicant will have, as well as a dedicated and friendly team of teachers and support staff, a supportive family community including an active PTA, and the support of a committed governing board.
