A primary academy in Great Yarmouth is recruiting for a new principal.

Edward Worlledge Ormiston Academy, part of the Ormiston Academies Trust, has posted an advert for a new headteacher.

The advert describes it as a “happy, thriving school that shares a sense of community and togetherness”.

It says the school is “totally inclusive”, which high levels of pupils with complex needs.

The school, on Suffolk Road, is undergoing a building programme, which is due to be completed in summer this year.

“When this build is finished there will be room to offer appropriate free-flow and play space for our pupils, having changed from a junior school to an all-through primary over the last four years,” the advert says.

The candidate would start in September.

The school’s current headteacher, as listed on the website, is Dawn Kightley.

Its last Ofsted report, published in 2014, rated the school as requires improvement, and good in one area.
