This is an excellent opportunity for the appropriately qualified and experienced leader within our CMAT, at Sacred Heart Catholic Voluntary Academy. The school is built on clear faith principles and with a very positive, respectful culture. Sacred Heart is a Catholic Academy within the Diocese of Nottingham and the City of Leicester and is part of the St, Thomas Aquinas Trust along with 22 other Leicester City, Leicestershire and Rutland schools.
As Headteacher, the successful applicant will work closely with the CMAT Director of Performance & Standards and the CEO to shape and develop the direction of the school, and to monitor the impact of all work done.
This is a reserved post, meaning that we are looking for someone who meets the definition of a practising Catholic (the details of which are included with this pack). Beyond that, we are seeking someone with a demonstrable track record of evidenced school improvement work; someone who is a genuine team player, and who can show through examples that they are able to take people with them on their strategic journey.
We will offer the successful applicants a happy, welcoming and supportive team where everyone is committed to staff development and raising standards for all in an enjoyable and purposeful environment.
