Job/Person Summary

Community, Opportunity, Achievement 

There is so much to say about Riders that it seems a daunting task to try and summarise it in a tiny job description.  We are a large Infant and Junior Federation at the heart of Leigh Park.  We encourage you to read our history and all our data and stats on our website, and learn about Ofsted from our reports (currently Infant RI and Junior Good) but we don't want to throw a lot of facts at you.  We want you to understand the essence of us and be inspired to find out more.

Maybe you've heard of Leigh Park?  It's a big, warm-hearted estate north of Portsmouth - a proud and fabulous community which we are lucky to be immersed in.  The challenges of school leadership here are far outweighed by the rewards of being trusted, accepted and embraced by this community and the joy of standing with our neighbours to achieve real and impactful outcomes for our children.  There are no excuses. This is our ethos and is captured in our school mission statement-

"Standing together with our community to unlock opportunity and secure achievement for all"

Perhaps it's not so hard to summarise as we thought.   Are you inspired to stand shoulder to shoulder with this community; to find the key and help unlock opportunity for the Riders family; to find your joy in securing real, meaningful achievement for all our children?  We want to be a model of excellence in education - bespoke, impactful, authentic and real, at the heart of Leigh Park.  That's the job.  Are you the person?

Application Procedure

Visits to the school are warmly welcomed and can be arranged by contacting Nicky Emery on 02392 475342.
