We can promise the successful candidate a friendly working environment with hard working staff, supportive parents, dedicated governors and pupils who are eager to learn.

“Pupils achieve highly”
“Staff are exceptionally positive”
Children say “They enjoy learning and thinking hard”

Calmore Infant School provides a unique environment where children and staff can learn and grow. We make learning fun, interactive and memorable and build on children’s experiences, ensuring links are made to prior and future learning of their curriculum journey. Staff are positive, supportive and keen to continue to improve our provision.

You should role model our values of ‘Motivation and Challenge’, ‘Celebrating Success’, ‘Independence’ and ‘Respect & Care for each other’.

We are looking for someone who is seeking the challenge of leading a positive and strong school, whose staff are committed to meeting the needs of all children. You will oversee the delivery of an effective and robust recovery curriculum and continue to ensure that mental health and wellbeing is embedded in the ethos of the school.

We want someone who will lead our team with integrity and passion and also demand ambitious individual outcomes for all children, whatever their perceived barriers to learning. You are required to raise achievement for pupils and you will be supported by incredible staff and supportive governors in order to achieve this aim. We have kind, polite and hardworking children who love learning.
