Due to the retirement of the current post-holder, the Governors are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic and inspirational Deputy Headteacher to join our schools.
We are looking for a Deputy Headteacher who:
Is a practising Catholic;
Is an outstanding and energetic practitioner with a passion for teaching and learning, including a number of years experience at Senior Leadership Level.
Is able to support the Executive Headteacher in implementing the vision of a mutually supporting community showing care for each other and living the Gospel in the 21st Century;
Has high expectations and is able to maintain and build on the current high standards of spirituality, welfare, behaviour and academic achievement;
Is a strategic thinker who would aspire to contribute to the leadership in support of our role as a National Support School
We can offer:
A welcoming school family, with a strong Catholic ethos, where we are all valued
Enthusiastic, happy and friendly pupils who are willing and eager to learn
Supportive governors who are fully engaged in school life and share the vision
Well established links with our local parishes, Diocese and Local Authority
Parents who are supportive of the children and the school
A school that promotes continuous professional development for all staff.

Our schools, St Mary’s Catholic Nursery and Infant School and St Mary’s Catholic Junior School, have been working together in a Hard Federation very successfully for the past 3 years. The Governors wish to continue to strengthen the executive team across the schools by appointing an individual who is ready to contribute to the excellent leadership already in place.

Although the appointment will be at the Junior School, there is the expectation that the successful candidate will work across both schools.

Visits to the school will be warmly welcomed, please contact Mrs. Allen at the Junior School on 0208 647 4342 to make an appointment.

CLOSING DATE FOR APPLICATIONS: Monday 25th February 2019
