  • Someone with a clear vision of how school data can be efficiently collected and used to inform effective educational strategy
  • An individual who is passionate about inclusion with a complete commitment to ensuring that ALL pupils have high aspirations and are empowered to achieve their personal best, including children who qualify for Pupil Premium funding or have SEND requirements
  • An educator who is uncompromising in the delivery of an enriching and varied curriculum which is focused on supporting children to develop the right skills to succeed
  • A leader who is open-minded and prepared to be appropriately challenged and who will bring us innovation, engagement and a great enthusiasm for learning
