Are you an experienced SENCo looking for a new leadership challenge?

The governors are seeking to appoint an inspirational and talented leader who wishes to take a significant role in the continued development of The Preston & Wingham Primary Schools Federation. This is a unique opportunity for a leader with exceptional interpersonal skills and an unwavering belief in the potential of every child to form part of the federation's Senior Leadership Team, comprising of the Executive Headteacher & the Head of School (Preston) / Head of Curriculum, from April 2019 to ensure the pupils at both schools receive an outstanding education. The successful candidate will have specific responsibility for the day-to-day leadership and management of Wingham Primary School along with inclusion across the federation.
