L6 - L12: £50,122 - £58,105 FTE

Salary: L6 - L12: £50,122 - £58,105 FTE 

Working Pattern: This is a full-time, permanent position working 1.0 FTE, 39 weeks per year. However we would consider a two year secondment for applicants who can demonstrate successful whole school leadership experience, seeking a leadership development opportunity.

This position provides an exciting and unique opportunity for a person with a proven, successful track record in a senior leadership role. You will work in a highly supportive team both at St David’s C of E Primary School, and across the Trust.

St David’s was judged “Good” during both its Ofsted and SIAMS inspections and lies at the heart of its community, in the centre of Exeter. As well as aiming high for their pupils and families, the staff  are a warm and welcoming team, who build positive relationships with families, the church community and colleagues across the Trust.  The staff strives to develop pupils’ social, moral, spiritual and cultural understanding through its six core Christian values: respect, trust, friendship, compassion, justice and forgiveness.

As an inner city school, the catchment served by the school is diverse and experience of successfully supporting pupils and families with English as an additional language, as well as those with special educational needs, would be an advantage.

Exeter is a cathedral city and the county town of DevonSouth West England. It is situated on the River Exe, approximately 36 mi (58 km) northeast of Plymouth and 65 mi (105 km) southwest of Bristol.
