Veritas Primary Academy opened as a brand new primary academy in September 2015, and has since established itself as a 'Good' school with Outstanding aspects of personal development and nurture (Ofsted inspection 2018).
At Veritas Primary Academy our vision is one of aspiration, enrichment and opportunity. We want Veritas to be a place where children make happy memories and where they aspire to be the best they can and through learning opportunities and high quality enrichment, the skills to become responsible citizens and to lead happy, healthy lives.
At Veritas Primary Academy our mission is to work together to create a school that thinks and dreams big for its pupils
Expectations are high for all who make up the Veritas community and these standards are reflected in the wonderful physical environment we have developed to enable children to flourish within and beyond the school walls.

We believe that children learn best when they are motivated, happy and interested so we are committed to providing a creative curriculum which meets the needs of every individual.

What we are looking for in our next Headteacher
We are seeking an outstanding Headteacher, who is an innovative, responsible and insightful professional, with the passion, drive, and enthusiasm to build on Veritas Primary Academy's considerable strengths. You will be able to lead, motivate, develop, and inspire a school team of staff and governors who are passionately committed to giving pupils a wide range of real-life and enriching experiences, within a culture of highest expectations.
We are looking for a Headteacher who has a passion for inclusion and supporting the needs of children who have a special need. We are looking for someone who can see the potential and strengths in all children.
You will demonstrate a clear understanding of what it takes for a school to retain an 'Good' judgement and the competency to lead the school to an 'Outstanding' outcome. In addition, you will be able to demonstrate your ability to manage, prioritise and organise your workload, to show flexibility and resilience and recognise the need for pastoral care for all members of the community of the school. A commitment to well-being and mental health is essential.
