Head of School
Are you the right person for this key role within our school and federation?
This is a wonderful professional development opportunity for someone wanting to take the next step in leadership (Salary L4 - L8). Due to some restructuring within the federation, the Governors are looking to recruit a dynamic and highly effective Head of School to build on our strong record at our small village school In Warwickshire, currently with 100 children on roll. Because we are a small school we know all our children really well and we pride ourselves on the family feel of our school.
The successful candidate will:
· Play a key role in leadership across the federation working closely with other senior leaders;
· Have a proven track record of impact in a leadership position;
· Work closely with the federation’s Executive Headteacher;
· Lead by example and have a teaching commitment covering strategic responsibilities of other staff and/or PPA cover.
Required for the start of the summer term 2021, we are looking for someone who shares our high expectations for all children and is able to lead on developing an inspiring curriculum through planning imaginative and inspiring opportunities to meet the needs of all children. In return, we can offer a strong and experienced staff team, a supportive parent group and happy and enthusiastic children who are keen learners. Even though we are a small school we benefit from regular training and development opportunities as part of the Stratford Rural Schools Federation.
