EXECUTIVE HEADTEACHER - LUNE VALLEY FEDERATION.

FEDERATION BETWEEN LECK ST PETERíS AND HORNBY ST MARGARETíS CHURCH OF ENGLAND PRIMARY SCHOOLS.

TO START 01/01/2024 OR AS SOON AS POSSIBLE THEREAFTER.

Due to the retirement of our long standing executive Head Teacher, we are looking to appoint at a very exciting time. Previously, Leck St Peters and Hornby St Margaretís were managed collaboratively for many years. After reflecting on the great success and advantages of the two small schools working together, the governors have decided to federate, formalising our strong relationship with both schools creating the Lune Valley Federation. This creates a secure and exciting post for our new Head Teacher. Our new federation status will embellish the schools strengths and create strategic opportunities.

Our schools have strong Christian beliefs; therefore, the successful candidate will lead our schools according to our Christian values. To maintain our culture and build on our schools strengths we require someone who is inspirational, ambitious and compassionate. We are small friendly schools, in which you will build a rapport with each and every child, parent, carer, governor, member of staff and the local churches.

  • We value all members of our school community as created in the image of God and therefore of infinite worth.
  • We see everyone as an individual and seek to encourage them to reach their full potential.
  • Our curriculum is broad and diverse and takes full advantage of our unique geographical location.
  • We have a nurturing and encouraging community which helps children to thrive, building confidence and resilience.
  • We have enthusiastic and experienced team members.
  • We have well behaved and polite children who are well supported by their families and the community.
  • Hornby and Leck sit within close proximity of the Lancashire, North Yorkshire and Cumbria county borders. Our schools are part of Yorkshire Dales National Park and the Forest of Bowland, with only a short distance between the schools.
  • Both schools are within approx 15 minutes to the M6 and a stone's throw to major cities, historic villages and the Lake District National Park.
