Headteacher – Newick CE Primary School
Salary range: L13 – L19
Starting Date: September 2019
Number on roll: 209
The Governing Board are seeking to appoint a new Headteacher, after our Headteacher of eleven years moved on to head up a school significantly larger than ours.
Newick Primary School is a single form entry village school, with an EYFS class and one class per year group. Based in the heart of rural East Sussex we overlook woodland, and are privileged therefore to also have a Forest School.
In 2011 we were rated outstanding by Ofsted, and in 2017 we were rated outstanding in our SIAMS inspection.
Our new Head will understand the challenges that those ratings bring and will be committed to maintaining excellence across the School in the years ahead.
Our new Head will also be committed to maintaining our distinctiveness and effectiveness as a Voluntary Controlled Church of England School.
Newick Primary School is also a Teaching School. The new Head should have the commitment to expand the capacity of the Teaching School in order that its requirements to recruit teachers, undertake school to school support and provide CPD opportunities in line with DfE expectations are fulfilled.
To apply, please email the Leadership Recruitment Team (firstname.lastname@example.org) at East Sussex County Council to request our recruitment pack.
Prospective candidates wishing to visit our school should book an appointment by contacting the school office on 01825 723377 or by emailing our School Business Manager, Denise Taylor at email@example.com.
The closing date for applications is 12 noon, Monday 18th March 2019. Interviews will take place on Wednesday 3rd and Thursday 4th April 2019.
Newick C.E. Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We will ensure that all our recruitment and selection practices reflect this commitment. All successful candidates will be subject to Disclosure and Barring Service checks along with other relevant employment checks.
This post is covered by the Childcare Disqualification Regulations 2018.
The school will need to ensure that they are not knowingly employing a person who is disqualified under the 2018 Regulations in connection with relevant childcare provision. Accordingly, the successful candidate will be required to demonstrate to the school, by completing a self-declaration form as part of the pre-employment checks process, that they have not been disqualified under the 2018 Regulations.
If the preferred candidate is found to be disqualified under the 2018 Regulations, the offer of employment will be subject to the application by the preferred candidate to Ofsted for a waiver and the receipt of a waiver from Ofsted.
