Delta Primary School is a one-form entry school that officially opened in 2018. It is a nurturing, supportive and inclusive school, where children have a voice and are offered a broad and creative curriculum. There is an excellent team of dedicated staff, who provide pupils with a high-quality education, which meets their needs, promotes independence and equips them with skills for life, so that pupils can flourish and achieve high expectations. Delta Primary School strives for excellence and their pupil outcomes are outstanding.

We are looking for an enthusiastic and inspirational Headteacher who has the ability and energy to lead and motivate others, with a clear vision for improving teaching and learning and who shares our vision and values. The ideal candidate will have high expectations that all pupils can achieve and any barriers to learning can be overcome through inclusive practice.

Delta Primary School is part of the ELT Partnership, which draws upon the excellent collaborative practice across all schools who collectively share responsibility for the outcomes for pupils.

There is an ongoing programme of support for new Headteachers and you will be provided with an experienced Headteacher mentor.

The wellbeing of our staff is of paramount importance and we promote a healthy work-life balance.  We are constantly reviewing our practices to ensure that our staff can focus on what matters: providing a rich environment in which children can learn and thrive.  As part of the Trust, we offer:

  • Wellbeing days
  • Attendance reward scheme
  • Perkbox app - with access to hundreds of exclusive company perks i.e. high street discounts
  • Modern technology for home and school use
  • Employee support hub
  • Cycle2Work Scheme
