Stirling Primary School is situated near the centre of Doncaster and is a popular school serving a diverse area. The school welcomes the variety and opportunities for learning that this cultural diversity brings. There is currently a building extension programme underway that will add further capacity.

Following a period of instability and high pupil mobility, the school is now looking to move forward with strong leadership driving rapid improvements in attainment and progress whilst providing a strong foundation for children’s learning and healthy life opportunities through a broad and balanced curriculum.

 The school is now looking to appoint a strong headteacher who will:

  • Provide positive, strong leadership and strategic direction

  • Further develop  good links with parents, governors and the community
  • Celebrate and develop the achievements of pupils and staff
  • Recognise and celebrate the cultural diversity of the school and  the community it serves
  • Demonstrate a strong commitment to social inclusion and provide inspiration to pupils and families
  • Develop and strengthen an  innovative approach to a broad and balanced curriculum

Governors are seeking a candidate with outstanding professional, management and teaching abilities. The successful candidate will be fully committed to providing the best education possible for all pupils within a culture of continuous improvement. They will be committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of pupils and staff through working closely with relevant agencies.
