The Governing Body is looking to appoint an aspirational, focused and supportive leader who will further develop our child-centred ethos for September 2022.

We have a successful toddler group which meets weekly along with regular community events. We also have a well equipped outdoor space which includes a wildlife area, swimming pool and a poly tunnel for use as a small kitchen garden.

Bewcastle Primary School is committed to safeguarding and to promoting the welfare and safety of children and young people and expects all staff to share this commitment. Enhanced DBS and Barred List checks are required for this post, as are excellent professional references.
