Description

Thank you for your interest in Lanchester Primary School.

Lanchester Primary School is a very well-regarded school in central Watford, having had a very positive Ofsted inspection in July 2019. Along with our two sister schools, we have now joined the Danes Educational Trust. You will be joining the school at a time when we will be reaping the huge benefits of our involvement with Danes.

Our vision at Lanchester is that every child is valued, celebrated and encouraged to be the best version of themselves that they can be. Our children realise their full potential through taking pride and having fun in their learning. In so doing, they grow into confident citizens of their world, who can make a positive difference.

We inspire our children to enjoy their childhood, while becoming:

• Independent, resilient, lifelong learners

• Thriving, adaptable and aspirational people

• Caring, considerate and respectful members of society.

We are a two-form entry primary school situated near the centre of Watford with excellent transport links into / from London, we are also close to the M25. You can visit our school website: www.lanchestercfs.org.uk for further information about the school.

The governors and myself are committed to the well-being and continuing professional development of all members of staff. We are a part of the Danes Educational Trust who have a track record of excellent pupil attainment and achievement and offers exceptional professional development opportunities both within the Trust and School.  

Successful candidates must be able to demonstrate that they share our values, are highly motivated to work with colleagues within school to continuously develop their skills, pursue professional excellence, and are able to enable pupils to make excellent progress. If this is you then we would be delighted to receive your application.
