Head Teacher - St Peter's and St Rumon's Tavistock
Full time, permanent
Salary L10 - 14 (£51,311- 56,579pa)
Are you a visible, supportive, and experienced school senior leader who is genuinely interested in community and excited by the opportunity to really make a difference? Then make the move to St Rumon’s Infant and St Peter’s Junior School as Headteacher.
St Rumon’s and St Peter’s Schools form Tavistock Church Schools Federation, part of St Christopher’s Trust - a family of 17 Church and Community Schools spanning three local authorities and providing a network of collaboration. Situated on the edge of Dartmoor, Tavistock is a vibrant, growing town with an active community. The infant and junior schools meet the diverse needs of pupils across their 2 sites through their happy and caring Christian atmosphere. Pupils are eager to learn and staff and governors are committed to the school’s development and journey.
A great opportunity for an experienced leader who is looking for a new headship role, you will join the school on its journey of improvement. That means you will have real scope to influence current practice, develop a clear vision for the curriculum and further establish the schools within the local community. Providing the dynamic and professional leadership it takes to ensure every pupil receives a high quality, principled education will be key. An ability to build community is vital to this role, with numerous opportunities to be a visible part of local events.
To apply, you will need to be a passionate practitioner who thrives on getting stuck in and has a clear vision for the curriculum. You will already have some experience in a school leadership position, be willing to share your professional knowledge with others and excited to embrace our school values. You will be as comfortable greeting parents each day as you are collaborating with your Trust colleagues. At the centre of your leadership you’ll be committed to promoting and safeguarding the welfare of pupils and protecting and enhancing the Anglican ethos, working with the Church family and guided by Christian values.
As well as a competitive salary and attractive benefits package, the Trust provides a rich programme of CPD and collaboration through an established leadership network. Being part of an outward looking Trust with key partnerships, you’ll learn from others in order to broaden your perspective, whilst also being supported through your own personal wellbeing by the Trust’s supervision programme for Headteachers.
