Following the retirement of our previous headteacher, we seek to appoint an exceptional and inspirational leader for Dane Bank Primary School.

Dane Bank is a wonderful single form entry, family-centred school at the core of its community and is part of the CLIC Co-operative Trust with three other primary schools (all based in the North-West). The core vision of CLIC is Changing Lives In Collaboration: ‘Together We Make The Difference’ and our values underpin everything that we do (Respect, Responsibility, Resilience, Kindness, Fairness and Empathy).

We are looking for a caring, passionate and dedicated Headteacher who will work closely and effectively with all Stakeholders – children, staff, parents/carers, families, governors, trustees, the local community and the whole CLIC Trust team, in order to secure an exemplary educational experience and excellent outcomes for all of our children. Every child matters to us and the successful candidate must be committed to collaboration and partnership working as well as embed and expand the already strong pastoral and educational support that we provide for our children.

For a private and confidential discussion about this exciting post please email to arrange a conversation with the Executive Headteacher, Jo Ashcroft.

Only applications submitted on the CLIC Trust’s application form will be considered. A full application pack, with more details about the School, Trust and Vacancy can be downloaded below.
