There’s an atmosphere of excitement at Nansen Primary School which has recently announced the appointment of Cath Rindl as head teacher.
The vibrant school, in Alum Rock, is already benefiting from Mrs Rindl’s strong leadership skills – and staff are committed to making Nansen one of Birmingham’s top performing primary schools.
Now Nansen Primary School is looking to recruit new talented and ambitious teachers that are looking for rewarding challenges.
“This is a great opportunity to play a leading part in taking Nansen to the next stage of its development,” said Mrs Rindl.
“We’re on the look-out for what we describe as ‘explorers’ – because that’s what we’re after: those who want to explore both their potential and the opportunities that exist with a school that is going places.”
Nansen’s namesake is the acclaimed Norwegian explorer, scientist and humanitarian, Fridtjof Nansen.
“Fridtjof Nansen is our role model. He was a great humanitarian working tirelessly for refugees and the displaced – a Nobel Peace Prize laureate as well as a champion skier, ice skater and leader of a team that made the first crossing of the Greenland interior in 1888.
“We reckon he would feel very much at home at Nansen as we encourage our children to explore the world around them.
“Within the past few weeks, they have participated in a project led by Birmingham Rep, taken part in a Happening History Workshop, re-enacted the story behind the Chinese New Year, embraced World Book Day – and watched the Great Britain Davis Cup tennis team train at the Barclaycard Arena – and had their photos taken with the Davis Cup itself!
“All of this in a vibrant multi-cultural area of Birmingham – which is the UK’s most exciting city giving huge opportunities for everyone that wants to have a go.
“Anyone with teaching – and exploring – in their blood should come and see us. We’d be delighted to show them around and discuss how they can play their part at a school where excitement and challenges are evidenced in everything we do.”
Nansen Primary School is part of CORE Education Trust which is guided by its values of Collaboration, Opportunity, Respect and Excellence.
