Paid weeks per year: 52
Salary: L24b – L30 (£74,295 - £86,061) plus a competitive and attractive relocation package, subject to individual circumstances.
Start date: April 2022
St Luke’s Primary is a three form entry community school, which sits in the heart of an active, diverse and vibrant neighbourhood within the city of Brighton and Hove. St Luke’s is over subscribed with an education philosophy and inclusive practices popular with parents. It has been judged ‘outstanding’ twice (2010/2013).
Due to the early retirement of the Headteacher, St Luke’s is looking to recruit an innovative, collaborative and outward-facing leader with the skills and vision to drive continuous improvement. This is an opportunity for an existing headteacher who shares the vision of inclusivity, strong relationships, intelligent practice, and high expectations for all.
About the role
So, what is our vision?
Always inspired by academic research, we have worked collaboratively over several years to shape the way we learn together as a Learning Community. Relationships are key and at the heart of our school community.
Our pupils have voice and agency; learn to learn and become citizens together and to take responsibility for everyone’s progress.
Talk and enquiry sit at the heart of our Learning Community and we are currently exploring and building our dialogic practice which is strongly bound with our whole school Philosophy for Children and thinking skills curriculum.
Just like the children, our staff take risks, embrace new ideas and research and explore new pedagogy. To facilitate this we collaborate through a professional development and coaching model.
St Luke’s has a strong local reputation for its inclusive practice and SEND provision but we don’t easily call ourselves ‘inclusive’. To be truly inclusive is something towards which we strive with whole staff and community commitment.
If you offer leadership which inspires and motivates others towards excellence and which will ensure the very best education for our children, then we would love to hear from you.
Visits to the school during the weeks commencing 18th October and 1st November are warmly welcomed and can be arranged by calling the Admin Manager, Lisa Miller: 01273 675080 or: email@example.com
Closing date: Monday 8th November
Interviews: 22nd and 23rd November
Completed application forms should be emailed to the School Business Manager, Marita Murphy: firstname.lastname@example.org
