The Governing Body is committed to securing the best candidate for this role and we are welcoming applications from all candidates, regardless of faith or religious belief.

Clore Shalom is a warm, caring and fun loving pluralist primary school, where children with great potential and thirst for learning thrive under the care of a nurturing and dedicated staff team.

We are a school on a journey and require a leader who possesses an absolute belief in the potential of young people, and the ability to both inspire the children and empower the staff in steering the school towards its ongoing improvement goals.

We will expect the Headteacher to set a culture of high expectations and make sure all pupils are supported and encouraged to aim high and achieve the best they possibly can. For our school community, it is also crucial to continue to develop our vibrant extra-curricular atmosphere and strong pastoral care network.

We believe this role is suitable for leaders who feel ready for the challenge of moving our School forward. If you can see our potential and have the confidence, ambition and vision to grasp it, then this role will provide you with a rewarding opportunity, both in terms of making a difference for the children’s sake and fulfilling your own career aspirations.

We would be delighted to receive your application if this opportunity fulfils your ambitions and welcome applications from all religious denominations.  If you would like to visit the school then please contact the School Office ( or 01923 855631).
