Head Teacher
Leadership Scale L8-14 NOR:103 Group 1

Required September 2020

St Peter's is a vibrant caring school. Its underlying Christian ethos and values are biblically based on 'the fruits of the Spirit', namely, love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, self-control and faithfulness. These completely underpin the life, work and decisions of the school. Every child is treated as a unique and special individual where there is the opportunity to develop particular talents and skills, and also where time is given in supporting and encouraging children to persevere at any area of the curriculum or school life that is more challenging for them.

Our last OFSTED report marked us good with many outstanding attributes and our SIAMS inspection rated us as outstanding. To take us further, our governing body is looking for:

  • An inspirational leader that can take the school to even higher levels of achievement
  • An excellent communicator that can motivate, inspire and develop the talent of both pupils and staff
  • A headteacher with the ability to nurture and develop our strong sense of Christian community within the school and the area that we serve

In return we offer you delightful and engaged children and a strong and supportive governing body who share a high commitment to the welfare and education of the pupils. We also offer you the opportunity to develop your own potential.

We are committed to safer recruitment practices and to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all children. We expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. The post is subject to an enhanced DBS check.
