Ivy Education Trust is seeking to appoint an exceptional individual with vision, energy, and inspirational leadership to the position of Headteacher at Starcross Primary School. We are looking for the successful candidate to start in September 2023.

Starcross is a wonderful school, full of energetic and enthusiastic children who thrive with staff who nurture, care and plan for their learning step by step. At the last inspection in May 2017, the school was judged to be a ‘good’ school.

Starcross Primary School is a single form entry school with one class per year group plus a thriving pre-school on site and provide education for children from age of 2.5 to 11 years old. Our school was built in 1837 and has been through many developments over the years. We are now a school of around 190 pupils with a community feel both inside and outside the classrooms. Our excellent facilities include:

  • a brand new playground and a swimming pool on site, that all classes can use,
  • a fantastic preschool setting as part of the school, which enables all children to begin their learning journey with amazing learning opportunities
  • a great outdoor learning environment, including our nature area and gardens
  • a superb kitchen, with delicious hot meals for everyone

The Headteacher will have overall responsibility for the organisation, management and conduct of the school. You will provide leadership and assist with the delivery of the Trust’s vision to ensure the achievement of the highest possible standards of education at Ivy Education Trust. The role will require collaboration within and beyond the Trust and a close working relationship with the Chief Executive Officer and Executive Director of Education. The Headteacher is accountable to the Local Governing Board and to the Trust Board.
