  • The desire and ability to promote and continually develop our school’s inclusive values and strong Christian ethos.
  • High expectations for children’s personal development, happiness, welfare, behaviour and attainment.
  • A clear vision of excellence in primary education with the ability to think strategically and lead the school through the next exciting phase of its development.

  • An ambition to provide distinctive leadership of the school, along with the capacity to be open to the advice and guidance of others.
