This will involve helping to plan and deliver lessons, organising events based on the liturgical calendar, and creating extracurricular opportunities and closer links with the Diocese, local community and parish.  

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. The successful candidate will be required to undertake an enhanced DBS check.

Application forms can be downloaded from the school website: They should be completed and emailed to or posted directly to the Headteacher, Mrs D Lennon at the address above.
