Head of School
Group 2 / ISR L15 – L21 / number on roll: 353
Required September 2021
Nelson is a community school for boys and girls aged 3 – 11, serving the local and wider community in Whitton and Twickenham. The School is part of a small Primary Multi-Academy Trust.
Based in the heart of South West London, Latchmere Academy Trust is an ambitious Multi-Academy Trust (MAT) at the beginning of its journey. We aim to deliver an outstanding primary curriculum, backed with exceptional teaching and learning, for all children in the care of the Trust.
Following the promotion of our current Head of School we are looking for an exceptional individual with an overwhelmingly positive outlook who has the drive, energy, optimism and expertise to build on the positive work done to date, raise standards and take Nelson Primary School on the next stages of its school improvement journey.
Nelson joined Latchmere Academy Trust, a sponsor academy, in September 2017 following an inadequate Ofsted judgement. Over the subsequent two years, with support from the Trust and the dedicated input of the Nelson leaders and staff, the school was promoted to Requires Improvement with good features by Ofsted in 2019. We are now setting our sights on achieving an overall Good judgement at our next Ofsted inspection.
This is an exciting time to join the Latchmere Academy Trust as a senior member of the team. You might be a deputy, ready for the next step, or an established head of school looking for a new challenge / opportunity with an organisation that shares your own values. Most importantly you will have the children at the heart of all you do, be passionate about teaching and learning, and have the emotional intelligence and communication skills to help you get the best out of others.
If this sounds like you, and you are excited about being our new Head of School, you are most welcome to visit Nelson, please contact Angela Cavill, Head’s PA to make an appointment. Contact details can be found by clicking the Apply Now button or by viewing the attachments below.
