St John’s Catholic Primary School is a Catholic primary academy and part of the Kent Catholic Schools’ Partnership (KCSP), a multi-academy trust (MAT) established by the Archdiocese of Southwark for Catholic education across Kent. Currently a MAT comprising 24 academies (19 primary and 5 secondary), KCSP is seeking to appoint two inspirational and dedicated Interim Assistant Headteachers from September 2022 due to the promotion of the current post holders.

St John’s are seeking to appoint two new Interim Assistant Headteachers who will be committed to the vision of the school and who will help to further develop the excellent and exciting work and foundations that the academy has in place.

Reporting to the Co-Headteachers, the interim Assistant Headteachers will be class based roles (2-3 days teaching commitment) and will be expected to lead in areas of assessment, curriculum and other strategic roles to ensure that the leadership team strive together for children following the academy’s values of “Resilience, Respect, Resourcefulness, Reciprocity & Reflection”.

The successful applicants will take a role in providing inspirational Catholic education based on our shared Gospel values. We are therefore seeking to appoint either practicing Catholics or individuals who are fully willing to support and uphold our religious ethos.
