Headteacher - Frederick Bird Primary School
About the team we are recruiting to
Leadership Scale – Group 5 – L22 to L28 £74,9283 to £86,040
At Frederick Bird Primary School, our shared vision is for every child to be a proud member of our community, surrounded by care, positivity and happiness. We aim to educate and nurture them to be the best that they can be in our ever-changing world.
What is the job role?
We are searching for a new Headteacher to lead us on the next stage of our improvement journey as we aspire to realise the high standards we set for our children, our staff and our whole community. The school is on a rapid journey of improvement which is challenging but exciting and much progress has already been made.
We are currently in the process of joining Inspire Education Trust who have been supporting us with school improvement from the wider Teaching & Learning team since November 2022. We are very excited about this new partnership and can already see the difference working alongside the Inspire team. With our Ofsted inspection being very recent and the fact we are moving into a Trust, we now have at least 3 years to continue to develop to secure at least ‘Good’ at our next inspection.
Who are we looking for?
We are looking for an exceptional individual who is:
• innovative, hardworking and passionate about improving educational standards
• an inspirational and strategic leader; with a proven track record of improvement
…and who wants to:
• empower and motivate staff and pupils to achieve their full potential.
• promote and maintain excellent relationships with parents, carers and the wider community.
• develop healthy, independent and curious learners.
• acknowledge and celebrate strengths of all individuals.
• meet the challenges of the future and continue on our improvement journey
