Frimley Primary School is a large (U6) diverse and inclusive school in sunny Hastings, Hawkes Bay. It is the Lead school for the Tukituki RTLB Cluster (cluster 23) and is part of Ngā Hau e Whā Kāhui Ako.

o   Our school has been on a transformational journey over the last eight years. In this time we have thought deeply about giving effect to Te Tiriti o Waitangi through developing:

o   Effective partnerships with Whānau, Hapu, Iwi, Pacific fono and the wider Hapori.

o   Culturally sustaining teaching practices reinforced with current pedagogy.

o   An excellent strategy to grow the use of Te reo me ōna tīkanga for our staff and students.

o   Redesigning our curriculum to be Place Based learning and centred in Kahungunutanga.

We are looking for a passionate, hardworking leader with integrity who is guided by strong personal values and sets high expectations for self and others. The ideal person will need to demonstrate that language, culture, and identity are an essential part of their vision for learning and teaching, and they will believe and embrace Te reo me ōna tīkanga Māori. They will be someone who can 'weave' a diverse group of people together with a common kaupapa.

Further to this we seek someone with strong strategic thinking, financial management and organisational skills to lead initiatives that embodies the aspirations of our school community.

Our school has living values and a strong community spirit that are core to our success. If this sounds like you, we welcome your application.
