The Governors of this thriving community school are seeking an experienced and inspirational leader with a commitment to a child-centred approach and the school ethos of ‘Caring, Sharing and Learning Together’.
We are proud to offer a supportive community where we all share a passion for learning and are continually building on our current excellent practice. We have happy children who enjoy attending school which was reflected strongly in our recent parent survey.
