Are you our next headteacher?

Shine at Shelf! 

Whether we blaze like the sun, sparkle like the stars, or shimmer like a dragonfly, we all shine at Shelf Junior and Infant School!

Are you an existing head or an experienced deputy looking for a new challenge?  Can you offer our children the best start to their education and raise outcomes?  If so, we’re ready to welcome you into our family-friendly community primary school.

Governors, staff and pupils would like to appoint an inspirational, innovative and dedicated leader to take our school to its next phase of development, building on the success of the current headteacher who is retiring after nine years with us.

Working with a great team, the successful applicant will have a proven track record of highly effective strategic leadership, with an inclusive and forward-thinking approach to teaching, learning and personal development.

Informal visits to the school are welcome, and strongly encouraged, so that you can see for yourself how our children ‘Shine at Shelf’.  Please contact Lynn Horsfall (Bursar) to arrange an appointment. Tel: 01274 676782.

Deadline for completed application:- Close of business on 1st October 2018

Proposed dates for assessment/interview:- 15th/16th October 2018

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all of our staff and volunteers to share this commitment.  Enhanced DBS checks are required for this, and all relevant, posts.
