Leadership 21 to 27

Full Time Permanent

Required from 01 January 2022


New Brighton Primary School is a vibrant, forward-thinking and inclusive 3 form-entry, maintained primary school in Wallasey. There are over 600 pupils on roll, from Foundation One nursery provision to Year 6. There are also 2 resource bases, one for speech and language for up to 12 FS/KS1 pupils and another for Moderate Learning Difficulties for 12 KS2 pupils.

Governors are looking to appoint a new Headteacher with the ambition, creativity and skill set to build on the school’s many strengths and provide the strategic leadership that will take it to the next level.

The school is proud of its inclusive culture and the shared commitment to providing the very best for every pupil. The focus is very much on developing the whole child and ensuring they all have access to a wide and varied range of opportunities and experiences.

New Brighton is a progressive school, always exploring and embracing opportunities for improvement. This has resulted in recent developments such as the building of a new on-site sports hall to further enhance its strength in PE, designation as a lead school in the Computing for School Network of Excellence and as a 2Simple Software Centre of Excellence. There is a new library and research hub and the pastoral well being of pupils is a high priority, increasing more so due to Covid 19. With these changes the focus is always on improving outcomes for pupils and this motivation will drive further strategic improvements.

The school is currently graded as Good and there is a collective ambition to continually improve. The school’s greatest strength is its committed and talented staff team who welcome and embrace new approaches which can enhance their practice and outcomes for the children. The new Headteacher must share this commitment and provide the leadership that can harness this passion and drive further improvement.

This is an exciting time for the school and Governors are looking to appoint a new Headteacher who will provide the strategic and collegiate leadership that will lead the school to an even more successful future. If you are a dynamic and experienced senior leader, this role offers you an outstanding opportunity to challenge yourself in a new environment. You must have a successful track record of sustained improvement and the vision and determination to maximise the opportunities available. You will be highly motivated and driven, having an in-depth knowledge of excellence in education and a commitment to ensuring the highest quality of teaching and learning. You will have the creativity and vision to inspire and lead change together with the focus to ensure successful outcomes are reached.

You will be outward facing with an optimistic, can-do attitude that will motivate and engage pupils, staff and the wider community. You will be a confident, dynamic and empowering leader able to inspire others whilst skilled at holding staff to account and be accustomed to personal accountability for pupil outcomes and all aspects of your work.  Above all you will ensure that the pupils, their learning and developing their potential remains at the heart of all decisions.
