Flexible start date – April 2023 onwards
Due to an internal promotion, we have an exciting opportunity for a school leader to join our Trust Family in the beautiful South Hams. All Saints Thurlestone C of E Academy lies at the heart of a thriving village community, framed by the stunning backdrop of the coastline and surrounding villages, and is under an hour’s drive from Plymouth and Newton Abbot.
As a small school there is a real sense of community where our children experience a rich and engaging curriculum that will enable them to have the best start in life and flourish in all they do. Thurlestone is strengthened by being part of a wider community of schools across Devon and Cornwall, ensuring our children and colleagues benefit from working together as a single organisation.
We are seeking someone who will drive our mission and beliefs so that every child has the right to live life to the full. Our School Trust is committed to improving educational outcomes for the most disadvantaged children, ensuring that every child experiences an excellent curriculum that is distinctive to their community.
Thurlestone is a church school and our new Headteacher must be committed to upholding the Christian distinctiveness of the school and continue to develop its Christian character through the educational offer.
Our School Trust is underpinned by our four core beliefs; we are stronger together, a sense of belonging; removing barriers and realising the possible. This means that by working collectively, we can achieve our absolute best to ensure that children, especially the most vulnerable, can flourish.
As well as providing the very best education for the children of Thurlestone, you will be part of a wider team of Headteachers who develop practice, share expertise, and innovate for the benefit of all children and colleagues within the Trust. We are an organisation where professional development and growth is supported and celebrated; we want you to feel professionally nourished and whose wellbeing is supported through our offer to you.
We want to support you in deciding if we are a School Trust that you would like to join. We strongly recommend that you arrange a visit to the school and a virtual call with our Trust Lead so that you can better understand if we are an organisation which excites you and can support you to flourish.
Please contact our People Team on email@example.com to arrange an appointment.
