Job summary

  • Headteacher for January 2022 (L11-L17)

    The Children, Staff and Governors are seeking to appoint a dynamic Headteacher with vision and drive for our wonderful village school. We are a standalone Primary Academy consisting of 150 pupils with Nursery provision.

    Westwoodside Church of England Primary Academy has been judged to be ‘Good’ by Ofsted (March 2020) and is a school which puts its Christian ethos at the heart of its philosophy. We received a ‘Good’ SIAMS judgement in November 2015.

    We are fortunate to have a large site in the heart of the village of Westwoodside in the Isle of Axholme, which is around 20 minutes from all the local towns of Scunthorpe, Retford, Gainsborough and Doncaster.

    The Governing Board are looking for an innovative and creative Headteacher with a passion for their work, a strong vision and a good business mind, to lead our enthusiastic team through the next stage of development, taking us from strength to strength.

    This post would be suitable for an experienced senior leader with an in-depth knowledge of Primary education. An understanding of business development and an imaginative way of thinking would also be highly desirable. Whilst an understanding of Church Schools is not essential, applicants will need to show a willingness to embrace and develop the Christian vision and ethos of our school.

    We are looking for a Headteacher who will:

    • Build on existing successes, identify opportunities for development and continue to embed the school vision and Christian ethos.

    • Have an empowering and approachable leadership style which motivates, inspires and challenges the school community in its broadest sense.

    • A collaborative approach to partnership working with other organisations and all members of the school community.

    • Have a clear vision and the ability to plan strategically for the school to ensure its future success.

    • Have the motivation and drive required to deliver plans which develop and realise the school’s full potential and maximise the outcomes for all stakeholders.

      In return, we can offer:

    • An enthusiastic group of children with a zest for learning.

    • A dedicated, experienced and supportive staff team who are fully committed to building on our good provision and who put the children at the heart of what they do.

    • A supportive Governing Board who are committed to the school’s future success.

    • A good school that wants to be better

      We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and we expect all staff to share this commitment and undergo appropriate checks.

      Visits to the school are welcomed and strongly encouraged. If you would like visit please contact our Business Leader on 01427 752355 to arrange a convenient time.

      Closing date: 5pm on Friday 17th September 2021
