Advert

Halling Primary School is excited to be looking for a new Headteacher, due to the retirement of our current Headteacher.  Having recently joined the Cliffe Woods Academy Trust in April 2019, Halling benefits from support from Executive Headteacher and Trust Business Manager.  Cliffe Woods Academy Trust understands the need for individual schools to have their own identity, therefore some policies may be Trust wide, however a large majority of decisions are made at local level, meaning that Halling Primary school stays exactly that… Halling’s!!!!

Halling Primary School is located in the attractive village of Halling, situated beside the River Medway between Snodland and Cuxton. There are good transport links with easy access to the M2 and the M20 as well as the recently opened bridge across to Wouldham and Burham.

The school has just been expanded to allow an increased PAN of 60.  Further expansion is taking place in order to extend the hall and other facilities.   Once the current expansion works are complete (October 2019) the school will have the very best learning environments for our children.

Halling School has a good OFSTED rating with outstanding behaviour and safeguarding and an outstanding Early Years Foundation Stage. Our staff are committed, friendly and reflective, always striving to achieve the very best outcomes for all of our children.

The successful candidate will be:-

  • An enthusiastic and energetic Headteacher or Deputy Headteacher with proven successful Primary experience who is dedicated and hard working
  • A motivational and aspirational leader with high expectations of all staff
  • Confident, inspirational, able to communicate and deliver a clear vision for the school
  • Committed to developing our children to reach their full potential
  • Approachable and willing to work with staff and Governors to implement strategies to move the school forward.
  • Able to develop and establish excellent relationships with the community and stakeholders

We can offer:-

  • An excellent opportunity to expand leadership experience in a good performing school set in beautiful countryside location
  • Highly skilled, motivated and committed staff
  • A dedicated and hardworking Academy Trust and Governing Body
  • Happy enthusiastic children who enjoy learning, are proud of their school and who are capable of achieving high results
  • Relocation contribution (considered)
