Are children at the heart of your work? Are you ready to lead an academy to further success? If so, read on. 

The Directors of The Diocese of Southwell and Nottingham Multi Academy Trust are seeking to appoint a headteacher to Cross Keys St Peter’s C of E Primary Academy. If successful, you will be working alongside a committed and enthusiastic governing body and a wonderful staff. 

Cross Keys St Peter’s is a very special place. Located in the beautiful village of Farndon, the academy is at the heart of a supportive and engaged community. The academy grounds have been very well developed to provide outdoor learning for all pupils. This is a very happy school. Children are keen to learn and love the opportunities that the committed staff provide them with. The opportunity to make a real difference to the children and their life-chances is awaiting the right candidate. We are looking for someone who can provide children with an exceptionally high-quality educational experience. 

If this sounds like your next step, you will need to be someone who:

  • Locates children at the heart of all their work.
  • Inspires colleagues to be the very best that they can be.
  • Values, promotes and celebrates our core Christian values in all that they do.
  • Provides expertise in primary practice.
  • Works with resilience, integrity and courage.
  • Brings exceptionally high expectations to all that they do. 

You will be supported by a Trust that does things differently: we aren’t corporate - and we don’t impose pedagogical policies. We don’t shift teachers around at little notice and we know that strength lies in the quality of our people. Critically, we are ego-free and work together to place the best interests of pupils at the centre of every decision and action. You will join our Senior Leadership Team of headteachers to move both Cross Keys St Peter’s and the wider Trust forward. This really is a Trust that you can trust. In return for your commitment, we will provide exciting opportunities supported through bespoke CPD, tailored specifically to your needs. You will be directly supported by the academy improvement team and will benefit from the wider support of our expert practitioners. We want you to stay in this Trust and will find opportunities to keep you interested and excited about your work. This is a rare chance to make a huge difference, to join a school at the heart of its community. 

If you are interested, please contact the academy on 01636 680360 to arrange a visit. Application packs are available available via the SNMAT website https://www.snmat.org.uk/ by downloading below or emailling: Angela Adams - aadams@snmat.org.uk
