Exe Valley



Permanent post from 1st September 2021.

Pay range: L2 to L6 [£43,251 to £47,735]

Brampford Speke Church of England Primary School is looking for an experienced leader to work with us from 1st September 2021, following the departure of the current Head of School to another school in the federation. Brampford Speke is a small and friendly school with high expectations and levels of achievement. The school is part of the Exe Valley Federation, which comprises 6 local village schools and is led by John Jolliffe, the Executive Headteacher. The new Head of School will be working as part of the leadership team and will be able to share expertise and knowledge across the federation and support colleagues in other schools at all levels.

Our Christian ethos and heritage and community involvement are very important to us and the successful candidate should have a good understanding of the importance of developing the school’s ethos in line with the SIAMS inspection framework. Substantial experience of working in a Church School would be an advantage. The school’s last SIAMS inspection was in 2018 and the school was judged to be good, receiving a positive report from the inspector. The school was inspected by Ofsted in 2017 and was also judged to be good.

If you are a dynamic and inspirational leader who is keen to work with us to move the school forward as part of the federation team, then we would love to hear from you.

Due to the current circumstances, visits to the school prior to interview will not be possible. However, there is more information about the school on the federation website [www.exevalleyfederation.co.uk] and you are welcome to contact the school office with any questions you may have about the school. Please telephone the school office [01392 860374] or email brampfordadmin@exevalleyfederation.org.uk. More information and an applicant’s pack are available on the federation website.

The closing date for applications is Friday 30th April 2021 at midday and interviews will take place during the following week. Completed applications should be emailed to the Executive Headteacher, Mr John Jolliffe, via the school office [brampfordadmin@exevalleyfederation.org.uk].

The Exe Valley Federation is committed to keeping all our children safe. Candidates will be expected to demonstrate their knowledge of safeguarding and hold an Enhanced DBS check.
