What skills and experience we're looking for

The St John Paul II Multi Academy are seeking to appoint a Head of School for Holy Cross Catholic Primary School. This is a very exciting opportunity for someone who is seeking a leadership role within a community that prides itself on the care, commitment and educational standards provided for all children. The Head of School will be appointed to support the Executive Principal (who is also the Deputy CSEL of the Multi Academy) in the day to day running of the school.

This unique opportunity has arisen due to the promotion of the current Head of School. This position would ideally suit someone who aspires to make a difference to children through effective leadership and management.

We are seeking to appoint someone who:

  • Is a committed practising Catholic.

  • has the confidence to run the school day to day in the absence of the Executive Principal.

  • can work with initiative, able to make decisions and work collaboratively with others to ensure policies, practices and procedures are consistently followed.

  • has the drive, ability and commitment to raise standards across the curriculum.

  • is resilient, innovative, creative and forward-thinking.

  • has highly developed interpersonal skills to work with all parties in the school community and with other schools/external agencies.

  • is confident to deal with safeguarding concerns that arise.

What the school offers its staff

At Holy Cross we can offer you:

  • A positive caring ethos based upon the values of the Catholic faith

  • Well motivated happy children who love to come to school and are excited about learning

  • An exciting opportunity of collaborative working as part of a forward-thinking Multi Academy that provides opportunities to support and develop your continuing professional development

  • A committed and supportive staff and environment where you will be encouraged to develop your professional career

  • Committed leaders, governors and colleagues across the academy to support you within the role.

  • An inspirational Parish Priest and Parish community who want the very best for the school.
