About the role

We are looking to appoint an inspirational leader who is ready to embark on a fresh new challenge… Easily accessible with great transport links, Stevenage is perfectly located for job seekers from parts of, Herts, Beds, Cambs, London and Suffolk.

Woolenwick Junior School is a community school for 7 to 11 year olds with 234 children on roll.  The “Blast” club provides before and after school care to pupils at the school, which is a valued service by our parents.  When last inspected in March 2014 the school was judged “good” by Ofsted.

Working collaboratively to meet the needs of all our children…

We have a good reputation for inclusion within the community, something we are absolutely committed to.  We have a higher than average pupil premium. We are very proud to be a flagship SEND school and we are privileged to have a dedicated family worker, INCO and SENCO to support our families and children, many of whom come from challenging backgrounds.  Our School’s greatest strength is its nurturing nature where children are happy, safe and secure in their learning.   We also currently have the contract to be the lead agency for the Stevenage North group of Children’s Centres, extending the Woolenwick community along with our out of school provision Blast club.

A new chapter in our schools journey…
