Headteacher job summary

Are children at the heart of your work? Are you looking for an opportunity and a challenge? If so, read on.

The Directors of The Diocese of Southwell and Nottingham Multi Academy Trust are seeking to appoint a headteacher to St Swithun’s C of E Primary School.
We are looking for someone who can build on the good work of the current headteacher and provide children with an exceptionally high - quality educational experience. If this sounds like your next step, you will need to be someone who:
• Inspires colleagues to be the very best that they can be.
• Values, promotes and celebrates our core Christian values in all that they do.
• Provides expertise in primary practice.
• Works with resilience, integrity and courage.
• Brings exceptionally high expectations to all that they do.
• Locates children at the heart of all their work.
You will be supported by a Trust, SNMAT, that does things differently: we aren’t corporate. We don’t impose pedagogical policies. We don’t move teachers around and across partner academies; we know that strength lies in the quality of every one of our people. Critically, we are ego-free and work together to place the best interests of pupils at the center of every decision and action. You will join our Senior Leadership Team of headteachers to move both St Swithun’s and the wider Trust forward. This really is a Trust that you can trust.

In return for your commitment, we will provide exciting opportunities supported through bespoke CPD, tailored specifically to your needs. You will be supported by an executive team in the first year and will benefit from the wider support of our expert practitioners. We want you to stay in this Trust and will find opportunities to keep you interested and excited about your work. This is a rare chance to make a huge difference, to join a school at the heart of its community, and an organisation that is looking to be the best Multi Academy Trust that nobody has heard of (that’s deliberate).
