Working together, we can all achieve success.

Elvington Church of England Primary School is a happy, lively and successful school situated just a few miles south of the city of York.

We are proud to be an inclusive and successful village school, serving our local community and numerous families beyond. With over 140 pupils on role we strive to offer our children a caring, stretching and vibrant learning environment - in which pupils grow, thrive and achieve.

Our core values (Respect, Hope, Perseverance, Friendship, Thankfulness and Trust) reflect our Christian foundation as a Church of England School and provide the basis for everything we do.

Following a recent Ofsted inspection affirming we are a solidly ‘Good’ school, we are now looking to appoint a new Headteacher to join us on the next step of our development journey.

This is an exciting opportunity for an inspirational and ambitious primary leader with high expectations and ambitions to lead our school forward, to build on our reputation in the community and our achievements in the classroom.

You’ll bring practical expertise in how to deliver exceptional teaching and learning - and how this translates into extraordinary learning environments for children and a rewarding professional experience for staff.
