  • Headteacher – Newick CE Primary School

    Headteacher – Newick CE Primary School

    Salary range: L13 – L19

    Starting Date: September 2019

    Number on roll: 220

    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 (leadership.recruitment@eastsussex.gov.uk) 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 dtaylor@newick-ce-prm.e-sussex.sch.uk.

    Please also visit our school website: https://newickschool.org.

    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.

  • Organist and choir leader at St George’s, Crowhurst, East Sussex

    Type: Parish By: Diocese of Chichester When:

    THE SCHEDULE: JOB DESCRIPTION (non-contractual)
    SALARY: Between £2000-£4000 depending on experience and whether all the responsibilities are taken on in the job description.

    The Parochial Church Council of St George’s has set out the areas it would like an organist and choir leader to tackle, but would not want to discourage a good candidate, who was unable to fulfil them all. There is a willingness to tailor the appointment to the right candidate and to scale the payment appropriately for this. If the appointed candidate, for good reason, is subsequently unable to fulfil any contracted duties and the PCC remains supportive of the continuation of the employment, then the PCC will again scale the payment in relation to duties actually being performed.

    1. To play the organ, at the 11am Sunday service, in Crowhurst. The important Sundays in the church calendar include Mothering Sunday, Palm Sunday, Easter Day, the Patronal Festival (normally the closest Sunday to the 23rd April), Whitsunday or Pentecost, Trinity Sunday , All Saints’ Sunday and Remembrance Sunday. 
    2. To play the organ at other major occasions which fall on a weekday, which at Crowhurst include Good Friday, Christmas Eve Christmas Day and All Hallows’ Eve. 
    3. To play at the Crowhurst School service on Wednesdays in term time between 9am-9:30am
    4. To work to recruit, with the support of Rector, wardens and Parochial Church Council, a new robed choir to sing at the regular church services including festivals and special occasions; the latter to be agreed with the Rector.* 
    5. The appointed candidate will cherish the musical heritage of the Church of England, but be willing to be innovative when appropriate. The New English Hymnal is normally in use, but we have more contemporary hymns on the first Sunday of the month. 
    6. To engage with the local school(s) with a view to encouraging staff and pupils to join the church choir. Crowhurst Village School is agreeable to a junior choir rehearsing as an after school club and would be delighted to work constructively with the appointed candidate. 
    7. In undertaking 6 to offer musical assistance to the school such as taking a weekly hymn practice. 
    8. To train the church choir and to arrange and conduct suitable weekly practices. 
    9. In undertaking 7 above individual tuition may be required. Please be aware of the latest Church of England Guidance on appropriate behaviour. 
    10. To be responsible for the supervision of the care and maintenance of any musical instruments, music or other accessories required by the choir. 
    11. When requested to do so by the Rector, to attend meetings of the PCC and its sub-committees. This has not been a regular expectation in the past. 
    12. To liaise with the Rector on the progress of the choir and any proposed activities other than normal church and festival services eg competitions. 
    13. Evidence of a DBS search will be required.

    To play at the Crowhurst School service on Wednesdays in term time between 9am-9:30am 

    *Until the start of 2019 the church had a small choir, which was down to two members, which was why the sad decision was taken to disband it. It is suggested that the previous members, who were highly committed, should be approached to see if they would be willing to join a new choir. There is good reason to believe that others would join a choir.


    Applicants are encouraged to give the Rector, the Rev’d Dr Michael Brydon, a telephone call (01424 892988) or to email him on mbrydon86@btinternet.com for an informal chat.

    Candidates are invited to apply formally by producing a letter stating their previous experiences and why they would like to apply for the job as outlined above. We reiterate that we will tailor the appointment to the right candidate, so an inability to fulfil all of the above, or to provide previous evidence of having done so is not a barrier to an application. Please email applications to the rector at mbrydon86@btinternet.com or post them to The Rectory, Church Lane, Catsfield, East Sussex. TN33 9DR. All applications need to have been received by the 22nd March. We will respond to all applications and let you know whether we wish to call you for an interview.
