Core Leader


Job Title:             Core Leader

FTE:                      Full Time
Job Status:          Permanent
Start Date:           September 2023

Are you an excellent, committed teacher with proven leadership experience?
Maybe you have some middle leadership experience but want to develop further?
Is your leadership style kind, compassionate yet intolerable of mediocrity?
Are you someone others look to for support, guidance or inspiration? (Maybe all 3!)

Have you led significant change or impacted whole school outcomes?

If you answered yes to at least three of the above, then read on…

We are looking for two ‘Core Leaders’, one to lead the lower school (EYFS & KS1) and one to lead our upper school (KS2).  Alongside this, you will take the lead on either English or Maths across the school. These are significant responsibilities, including leading large staff teams and will therefore come with regular release time from class teaching responsibilities and suitable TLRs.

First and foremost, you need to be an excellent classroom practitioner who is a role model for others. Secondly, some leadership experience is necessary – either you are an exceptional leader already or you are a rough diamond that needs a bit of polishing – please see the person specification for eligibility.

After many years languishing in Special Measures, our school is in a very different place and we require the right people to take us to the next level. Ironically, the journey out of category was straightforward, however it is this next phase which can be stubborn and complex. We need people who are innovative, creative, think outside the box, pay attention to detail, have sky high expectations of themselves and others, relentless, driven, reflective, compassionate and above all…fearless!

If this sounds like the project for you then let’s have a chat on the phone or come and visit our delightful school.

Thank you


Mo Rahman
