Trustees and Governors are seeking to appoint a dynamic and skilled professional, with an aptitude and impact in curriculum, assessment and pupil outcomes, in a primary context. The successful candidate will be an exceptional leader who is ready for a new challenge and able to demonstrate strategic leadership and management skills alongside having the drive and ambition to help lead Essa Primary through its next stage of development.

The successful candidate will:

In return, you will get a lot back from our young people – they are lovely – and you will be working for a Trust that will take an active interest in your wellbeing and development.

If you feel you have the skills and commitment to support us in getting the best from our pupils then we would love to hear from you. Interested candidates are most welcome to visit the school and visits can be arranged through the school office ( / 01204 201310)
