What skills and experience we’re looking for

This is an excellent opportunity for an outstanding leader to continue the work of our outgoing Headteacher to lead, shape and further develop our wonderful school.

You will lead a committed team of staff and work alongside a governing body that is ambitious and has high aspirations for all pupils and staff. You will continue our ‘Whole School’ approach through your leadership and have the aspiration, resilience, and the ability to build positive and trusting relationships and meet the diverse needs of the school and its community. You will build on a strong culture of learning and ambition that will see our children develop, grow and contribute an active part in today’s society.

About You:

The Governors are looking for a principled and reflective Headteacher or aspiring Deputy Headteacher with a passion for promoting excellence in teaching and learning and a strong focus on pupils’ achievement and holistic development. You will have the ability to deliver positive outcomes for all pupils, regardless of faith, background or ability. In addition, you will be strategic in ensuring our school has long-term sustainability in an ever-changing education landscape.

The Headship of a village Church school is unique: you have the benefit of getting to know a tight-knit and caring community and personally build relationships with each child, yet the role is diverse and requires a balanced skill-set and adaptability from the Head as well as forming strong relationships with the Diocese and local community. As the outgoing Headteacher is currently the SENCo, it is highly desirable that the new Headteacher is a qualified SENCo and can also take on the SENCo role, along with a teaching commitment of 0.1.

What the school offers its staff
  • A happy and friendly school, with delightful children who respect each other and have a thirst for learning.
  • A culture which allows all staff to thrive and develop.
  • An opportunity to see the huge potential that exists and the time to make Huby CE Primary School a beacon of excellence in primary education.
  • Significant levels of support from the Local Authority, Diocese, Governing Board and a staff team who are experienced, committed and passionate about our school.
  • A Governing Body committed to providing support on all matters including more sensitive or difficult issues and including the wellbeing of all staff members.
  • The school is part of a Cluster where the Headteachers meet regularly. This provides a support network for sharing ideas and best practice.
