Our much respected and popular Head Teacher is retiring and the governors of Asmall Primary School would like to appoint a Head Teacher who would continue to put the best interests of the children at the heart of all they do.

Following a serious fire, we are proud of our smartly refurbished building and completely new equipment stocks. However, we are prouder still of our standing in the community as a happy, nurturing and inclusive school.

We would want our new Head Teacher to:
  • Demonstrate the drive, leadership, creativity and flexibility to build on our current high standards of teaching and prudent financial management.
  • Value every child and staff member and ensure that both pupils and staff have high aspirations for achievement
  • Foster the well- established culture of strong, open and honest relationships with all stakeholders, children, parents, staff, governors, and the local community alike.
  • Continue to make learning a happy experience for every child.

    We would offer our new Head Teacher:
  • Children who are happy, valued and motivated.
  • Staff who are skilled, committed, and collaborative.
  • Governors who are engaged, dynamic, and supportive.
  • A working environment that is clean, modern, and well equipped and pleasantly situated in a semi-rural location.

    We look forward to welcoming you to “The Asmall Experience.” To arrange a visit during weeks commencing 20th and 27th March, please contact Michelle Speak, Head Teacher on 01695 576654.
