At St. Margaret’s CE (Cont.) Primary School our ethos is underpinned by our vision statement which is ‘Let your light shine…’ and was described in a recent SIAMS inspection as a place,’… that does not just shine, it powerfully glows like a beacon of light within the school and beyond.’ (SIAMS 2019)

Due to the promotion of the present postholder after ten years of dedicated service, the Governors seek to appoint a committed, experienced and dynamic teacher with senior management experience to continue to support the growth and development of our wonderful school where, ‘…the unique needs of every individual are met and adults and pupils thrive.’ (SIAMS 2019)

Applicants will need to build on the school’s achievements with vision and enthusiasm and provide leadership of the highest quality in the academic, pastoral and management fields. They must be able to show evidence of the successful implementation of change and must be supportive of the strong Christian ethos and values of the school.

As a disability confident employer, we are committed to employing disabled people and people with health conditions, making reasonable adjustments to support disabled applicants where required.
