Wanted! One Master Chef to create with 200 children and staff!

Have you unbridled enthusiasm and limitless energy? Can you generate a sense of purpose and focus within a happy relaxed atmosphere? Are you passionate about achieving success and happiness for every child? Can you provide dynamic and inspirational leadership? Then you might be the person we are looking for.

The Governing Body is seeking to appoint a headteacher to lead this popular school. We pride ourselves on having an excellent reputation in the community based on the care we take to provide children with a happy, safe and well supported environment based on the school’s six core values of respect, responsibility, citizenship, caring, trustworthiness and fairness.

As a Growth Mindset school, we believe intelligence grows and is not fixed. Children are given every opportunity to be successful and shine across our wide and rich curriculum with effort and attainment given equal emphasis. We are looking for a forward-thinking individual, who is dedicated to continuing this ethos and who is able to lead our school on the next exciting stage of its journey.

Within your application we would like to hear:

• How you would motivate every child to be the best that they can be.
• How you would drive Cumwhinton forward to achieve our school vision.
• What qualities you have that will enrich our school community.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Appointment is subject to suitable references and a satisfactory enhanced disclosure from the Disclosure and Barring Service. Reference checks will be made prior to interview.
