Burston and Tivetshall Primary School, Norfolk IP22 5TZ
This is an exciting opportunity to take over the Headship of two iconic, rural primary schools.
Burston Primary School is well known for its history, founded because of a school strike it then became the centre of the longest running strike in British history lasting from 1914 -1939 in the village of Burston, Norfolk. Today, the building stands as a museum to the strike. Every year hundreds of people turn up for a rally to commemorate the 25-year strike. Our small and intimate school has only 36 children, we have created a dynamic, friendly and secure environment with a positive approach to teaching. With small classes we can inspire each child, giving them close attention and ensuring they leave the school fully equipped for their next phase of learning.
