Job summary

Are you an inspiring primary teacher with substantial leadership experience? Due to the retirement of our previous headteacher in December 2020, an opportunity has arisen to lead our forward-thinking and very successful school.

A superb teaching practitioner, you will lead by example and have a thorough understanding of modern primary educational thinking. You’ll recognise our strengths, build on things we do well and contribute to our ongoing improvement. Our ‘Good’ Ofsted report in July 2017 captured our many exceptional qualities and we continue to flourish.

We are seeking someone who is creative, innovative and engaging, and who will help us raise standards further throughout this aspirational school. You’ll be working with an experienced, hard-working staff, a committed Governing Body and a supportive parent community. Our enthusiastic children love learning and thrive in our school environment.
