What skills and experience we're looking for

We are seeking an outstanding Headteacher, who is an innovative, responsible and insightful professional, with the passion, drive, and enthusiasm to build on Veritas Primary Academy’s considerable strengths. You will be able to lead, motivate, develop, and inspire a school team of staff and governors who are passionately committed to giving pupils a wide range of real-life and enriching experiences, within a culture of highest expectations.

We are looking for a Headteacher who has a passion for inclusion and supporting the needs of children who have a special need. We are looking for someone who can see the potential and strengths in all children.

You will demonstrate a clear understanding of what it takes for a school to retain an ‘Good’ judgement and the competency to lead the school to an ‘Outstanding’ outcome. In addition, you will be able to demonstrate your ability to manage, prioritise and organise your workload, to show flexibility and resilience and recognise the need for pastoral care for all members of the community of the school. A commitment to well-being and mental health is essential.

What the school offers its staff

Since opening in 2015, Veritas has been part of the REAch2, family. There are over 60 schools within our organisation, grouped into ten clusters. Veritas sits within cluster one and works most closely with five others in that cluster, based within Staffordshire. The cluster is led by the Deputy Director of Education. Being part of that family, you will benefit from the expertise, support and opportunities offered by the largest, primary only, multi-academy trust in the country; you will have the freedom to shape Veritas within our guiding principles, to open up opportunities to develop your career; to take care of your wellbeing at work and to enable you to flourish as an individual.

REAch2 will offer you the kind of rewards you can only find in a Trust that is improving the prospects and life chances for thousands of children across the country.

To find out more about the school and REAch2 we strongly advise that you visit our websites:
