We are looking for a dynamic and inspirational Headteacher to join and lead our warm, open, ambitious school in April 2022 or sooner.
We are part of a richly diverse and integrated community and are committed to the Church of England’s mission to serve the whole population.
Christian values are at the heart of all aspects of our school life and thus we are a school where every child and every adult is valued and included so that life can be lived in all its fullness.
In providing a safe, happy and orderly environment, and with high expectations we seek to inspire a love of learning through a broad and balanced curriculum, encouraging every child to use their God-given talents.
The Governors have taken the strategic decision and submitted an application to become an Academy within the Southwark Diocesan Board of Education Multi-Academy Trust. The timing of the proposed conversion (if accepted) will be in agreement with the new Headteacher.
Believe in the mission and ethos of our school;
Be a strategic leader with a proven track record of school improvement, including advancing the quality of teaching and learning;
Be passionate and relentless in improving educational standards, providing high quality leadership, management and inspiration, driving forward change to shape the future direction of the school;
Be able to develop effective partnerships with staff, governors, parents, the parish, the local authority and its safeguarding teams, and the wider community;
Be able and ready to work in collaboration with other schools within the Southwark Diocesan Multi-Academy Trust if the school joins.
We can offer you:
Amazing, well behaved children with positive attitudes to learning and pride in their family-feel school;
Hardworking, caring, dedicated and friendly staff and supportive parents;
Governors committed to support and improvement;
A nurturing working environment with a focus on wellbeing;
Excellent professional development and career opportunities;
An attractive salary.
