Unique opportunity for an outstanding school leader

We are looking for an experienced, enthusiastic and inspiring school leader to lead this warm and welcoming school in North Warwickshire. We are seeking to appoint a person who is able to develop and lead with a strong vision and who fully understands the Christian distinctiveness of a Church of England school. We are therefore looking for a leader who will actively support and promote our ethos in every aspect of school life.

We believe that success is found in who you are as well as what you do, and at all of our schools we aim to provide an outstanding education, supported by excellent pastoral care and high standards of behaviour, set within a distinctive ethos. We want to equip our pupils with academic achievement, experiences and personal attributes to enable them to succeed in the next stage of their education.

Woodside C of E Primary School is part of the Birmingham Diocesan Multi-Academy Trust (BDMAT) and therefore will be supported by and connected with a network of Church of England schools within the region. The Trust was established in 2017 by Birmingham Diocesan Board of Education, which has a strong track record of providing excellent educational provision and achieving rapid school improvement across all phases. The trust currently has 17 schools, all primary, spread across three local authority areas: Birmingham City (9 schools), Warwickshire (6 schools) and Solihull (2 schools). In addition, we are building our first secondary school, Christ Church C of E Secondary Academy which is due to open in Yardley Wood in September 2021.

The vision of the Trust is to ensure pupils have ‘life in all its fullness’; providing an education that will offer a wide range of opportunities and experiences within a Christian framework.

Interviews are scheduled for Monday 28th June 2021 at the school.

For informal enquiries, please contact BDMAT’s Chief Executive Officer, Christopher Mansell through his PA, Sheila Benbow who can be contacted at s.benbow@bdmat.org.uk or telephone 0121 426 0449.

Further details of the school, trust and post can be found at https://bdmatschools.com/ and also on the school’s website http://www.woodside-ce-school.co.uk/web Application forms for the post can also be found on these websites; alternatively, prospective applicants can request a form from Sheila Benbow. Application forms should be returned electronically to Sheila Benbow. All completed applications must be received by 12 noon on Friday 18th June 2021.

As this post is for a headteacher of one of the diocesan church schools we also request that applicants provide us with the name and contact details of a third referee. Your third referee will be asked to comment specifically on your suitability to be the spiritual and educational leader of a Church of England school. If you are a committed member of a church or faith community, please ask your church or faith leader to be your third referee and nominate them on the application form. If this is not possible, please ask someone who is able to comment meaningfully on your qualities which will enable you to lead a Church of England school.

Visits to the school are very much welcomed and encouraged and can be arranged through the school. http://www.woodside-ce-school.co.uk/web/contact/450157 Telephone 01827 715507 to arrange with the school office.
