Job/Person Summary

Following the announcement that our Headteacher will be leaving us in August, The Governors of Bushy Leaze Children and Families Centre will be looking to recruit a Headteacher for a January 2022 start.

Bushy Leaze Nursery School is one of only three maintained Nursery Schools in Hampshire. It is judged Outstanding by Ofsted, a grade it has maintained since 2002. We believe that what makes the school both outstanding and unique is the commitment and focus to not only each individual child in the school, but the support provided to each family and the wider community.

Bushy Leaze is a very special place, working with families right from the early stages of pregnancy up until starting school, offering a maintained Nursery School with a specialism in SEND, Family Support Services, and Outreach teams who provide support to pre-schools and families of all ages. We are committed to working together with families to build a happy, caring and inclusive environment where everyone is valued. Together we can make a difference.

We are therefore seeking a unique and ambitious leader who has the desire and potential to continue to drive our school where supporting families is at the core of what we do.  The successful candidate must be able to demonstrate that they understand and believe in this approach. Whether you are looking for a new leadership challenge or want to start your senior leadership career with us, we would be delighted to hear from you. 

Visits to the Nursery are strongly recommended. If you would like to visit the centre please call 01420 87675 to arrange a visit.
