Respect, Responsibility, Resilience

Are you already a successful senior leader seeking a new challenge?

Do you share our passion for education and want to make a difference to children's lives?

Carr Green is a large primary school set in extensive grounds. We aim to provide a stimulating, supportive and happy learning environment for our pupils as well as a broad range of recreational experiences. Governors are now, in anticipation of the retirement of our well respected headteacher, seeking to appoint a visionary and outstanding leader to take up this rewarding position from September 2021.

As our headteacher you will continue to lead us on our journey of excellence, providing collaborative leadership that is dynamic and inspirational whilst seeking to preserve the important values at the heart of our school. You will be a proven leader who is pioneering, courageous and passionate about teaching and learning and who is committed to the provision of an inclusive education for all our children.

We are a forward-thinking governing body with aspirations for school development and an understanding of future opportunities, and we believe this position represents an exceptional opportunity for someone with drive, vision and ambition to lead an already outstanding school with a long-serving and committed complement of staff. Accordingly, we are looking for an individual with significant senior leadership experience in the primary sector (previous experience as a headteacher or deputy headteacher is viewed as essential) who possesses outstanding interpersonal skills and the ability to enthuse, motivate and engage pupils, colleagues and other stakeholders.

The successful applicant will be supported by an experienced and hard-working leadership team and an enthusiastic team of teaching and support staff in working with well-behaved pupils who are recognised as being hardworking and keen to learn.

Due to the measures currently imposed by government with regard to the pandemic, and related concerns over observing social distancing it is more difficult to view the normal operations in the school. However, if you ring Paul Mashinter, the current headteacher, it may be possible to arrange a visit following Covid-19 safe guidelines or have an informal chat; you should ring the school office 01484 715969.

It is strongly recommended that you take the time to visit Our Website.

An applicant pack and application form can be downloaded from Our Website or from www.educatehr.co.uk. Completed application forms should be returned, via email, to recruitment@educatehr.co.uk for the attention of Gill Meeson (HR Director, EducateHR Ltd).

Closing date for applications is Friday 26 February 2021 (at 12 noon).

Assessments/interviews will be held on Wednesday 10 and Thursday 11 March 2021.

Carr Green Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of our students and all staff and volunteers are expected to share this commitment. The successful applicant will be required to undertake appropriate pre-employment checks which will include references from previous employers, confirmation of the right to work in the UK and appropriate DBS and prohibition checks.
