Part of the North West Academies Trust - Ellesmere Primary School inspire young people to be ambitious, independent learners, who are passionate about the world around them. Based in the Shropshire town of Ellesmere, close to the Welsh border, we have a strong sense of community and work closely with our partners to enable children to ‘be the change they want to see in the world’. Key to achieving this is ensuring we deliver creative, stimulating learning, which engages children of all backgrounds and abilities, and inspires a thirst for knowledge.

One of our top priorities is the welfare of every individual within our school. We teach our children ways to promote and support their own and others’ wellbeing and we encourage everyone to celebrate difference and challenge inequalities.

We believe that ensuring our pupils feel happy, respected and valued, provides the foundations for successful learning. As a school, we operate within a specific set of ‘Ellesmere Values’; Respect, Responsibility, Kindness, Teamwork, Creativity and Community.

Since joining North West Academies Trust in 2016, our learning environment has greatly improved, following a £3.5m investment in facilities improvements. This includes improvements to the layout of the school, better energy efficiency and new purpose-built classrooms.

The functions and specific responsibilities below are to be undertaken in conjunction with the duties of a Headteacher as defined in the Teachers’ Pay and Conditions Document.

 

Specific Responsibilities

The Headteacher will be a model professional, setting an excellent example to teaching and support staff. They will work in close partnership with the senior leadership team in actively and demonstrably promoting enrichment, entitlement and achievement through building and implementing agreed school policies. The headteacher will lead by example of their practice, and by positively encouraging and supporting all members of staff.  The Headteacher will work collaboratively with the senior leadership team to ensure that the school offers a high-quality, exciting, engaging, well-resourced, differentiated, and well-matched curriculum for all children.

We focus on driving up standards and have experience of improving standards in education to provide the right learning environment for all children to achieve their full potential.
