    Netherfield CEP School is a remarkable place to work, learn and grow.

    Due to the retirement of our current Headteacher, the governors, staff and pupils of Netherfield CEP School are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic and inspirational Headteacher from September 2021, who will sustain and build on the success of our wonderful school.

    In our school our Christian vision shapes all we do: Love never Fails (1 Corinthians 13).

    We have a relentless desire to develop further and offer the very best level of education to our pupils. Our approach blends innovative and creative learning opportunities with a high-quality curriculum. Outcomes for our pupils are excellent and are at the heart of everything we do.

    We are looking for someone who:

    • Loves their job and takes pride in everything they do.
    • Is fully committed to supporting the Christian values of our church school.
    • Inspires and motivates through innovative leadership.
    • Develops children’s learning through wider experiences.
    • Has high expectations of all children and staff.
    • Is flexible in their approach and is open to new ideas.
    • Is enthusiastic about parental and wider community links and able to build positive relationships with families.
    • Has commitment, enthusiasm, integrity, personal impact and presence as well as excellent interpersonal and organisational skills.

    In return, we are offering:

    • A warm and welcoming school community.
    • Established, highly skilled, dedicated, and caring staff who have high ambitions for each child.
    • Happy and enthusiastic children who enjoy learning and strongly uphold the school values.
    • A committed and supportive board of governors which provides an appropriate level of challenge.
    • An open culture with healthy relationships based upon mutual respect and understanding
    • An opportunity to lead and guide a highly effective school with clearly organised structures and an ethos designed to celebrate inclusion and diversity.

    We know that great schools thrive because of the people in them, and we value everyone at Netherfield CE Primary School. It is a privilege to be part of this remarkable school. Our distinctive approach is the fruit of careful review, refinement and renewal, underpinned by an absolutely uncompromising commitment to providing our pupils with the most appropriate and effective learning. We believe that this is a genuinely rare and exciting opportunity.
