Bealings School is a Local Authority maintained primary school spanning Reception to Year 6 with 105 children. It is in the village of Little Bealings in Suffolk.

Over the last 25 years under the leadership of its current headteacher, the school has built a national and international reputation for its approach to education: Learning and teaching is a co-constructed process based on the understanding that children learn best when there’s a meaningful context for that learning, and when the children are self-motivated to create meaning. Our children are empowered through our democratic whole-school meetings run by Year 6 pupils through which everyone’s voice is heard.

uphold a love and curiosity for learning for pupils from all backgrounds
sustain our school ethos and philosophy together with the parents and governors
hold the safety and well-being of pupils and staff as central to a healthy school community.

We will offer you:

an oversubscribed school driven by its strong alternative vision of education
a close community of parents and governors that is trusting, caring and supportive of the staff
an understanding of the importance of strong professional networks and support in the demands of this role.
