Job/Person Summary

Lanterns is a Local Authority maintained nursery school, judged outstanding by Ofsted in December 2017. It is a popular, vibrant and thriving centre at the heart of the community. At its heart is the nursery school that caters for approximately 120 children. Approximately 40% of the children have identified SEND, many of which are supported within the specialist SEN provision within the school. The learning environment is outstanding and the relationships between child and key person are core to the success of the centre. In addition to the nursery school there are a wide range of services supported by friends of Lanterns, a registered charity. Lanterns has a dedicated team of staff and Governors who commit to outstanding practice and believe the children and their families are central to everything they do.

The school has had a period of interim leadership over the last two years and we now seek an inspirational and dynamic individual who has the vision, enthusiasm, commitment and skill to lead us through the next stage of our journey. 

You will have a passion for early year’s education, be an innovative, quick thinker with the ability to implement and drive through change. 

The Governing Body is committed to supporting your professional and personal career development.  If you have the experience, vision and leadership skills that we seek, we would be delighted to meet you.
