Our valued and respected Headteacher is retiring at the end of the academic year after having energetically led the school through several years of self-improvement, culminating in a strong good judgement by OFSTED in May 2019.   The Governors are seeking to appoint an ambitious, enthusiastic and inspiring leader to steer the school on the next stage of its journey.

The school is at an exciting point in its journey. Our “Nurture, Inspire, Flourish” motto permeates all that we do. Excellent processes and structures are established ensuring outstanding behaviour and opportunities for learning. The priority is now to translate these structures into outstanding results throughout the school.   This is an excellent prospect for an ambitious and visionary leader. Whilst being extremely well supported, there is scope for making a personal impact.

You will lead a committed, hardworking and close-knit workforce, supported by an active Governing Body and strong Senior Leadership Team.   Courtney Primary School has beautiful, well-kept modern buildings and stunning views. We pride ourselves on our outstanding display boards and library which act both as a stimuli for learning and also as a statement of intent for the high standards we ask of our pupils and our staff.   The school is one form entry and, as a result, has a wonderful family feel. Community ties run deep and staff are exceptionally committed to providing the best for each pupil and member of staff.

We welcome visits to the school where there will be opportunities to meet children and staff. To organise a visit please contact the school office.   Visit dates and times to be arranged on request.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all children in our care and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. This is embedded in all our recruitment and selection practices. All appointments will be subject to appropriate vetting including enhanced DBS disclosure checks along with relevant employment checks   We particularly welcome applications from under-represented groups including ethnicity, gender, transgender, age, disability, sexual orientation or religion.

Applicants are welcome to download our recruitment pack, prospectus and application form.  Applications must be made on our application form and emailed to the school office: by 12 pm on Wednesday 18th March 2020.
