Are you inspirational and aspirational? A talented leader with a passion for excellence in early education? Do you thrive on developing highly-skilled teams of practitioners, ensuring children enjoy an excellent education?
Our three-form entry infant school and nursery is ready to welcome its next leader, someone who is willing and able to build on our many existing strengths as we enter a new phase of development for our community school.
The new headteacher will share our drive for inspirational teaching within a safe, creative, and nurturing environment. We require a leader able to raise standards, build successful school communities, and develop strong relationships with children, parents, trust colleagues and the wider community. We have a highly effective Speech and Language Provision, and are looking for a leader who is committed to inclusion and, if not already an expert in this area of SEND, has the passion and commitment to become so.
As a leader within Bridge Academy Trust we seek a partner who has a genuine desire to work with and beyond our primary and secondary schools across Essex, contributing to the wider education system and the longer term vision of excellence for our communities. In welcoming you to our Trust, we commit to you and your leadership development, and can offer significant opportunities for networking and development within and beyond Acorn Academy.
We welcome applications from all suitable candidates, regardless of any protected characteristic. Visits to the school are welcomed and encouraged.

Children are taught in single age classes and their learning is facilitated by their teachers around themes that the children have chosen. The school is well resourced and there is an interactive projector and whiteboard in every classroom. The school is committed to the professional development of all staff and encourages everyone to attend both local and national training to meet their needs.
