    Headteacher (L15-21, starting range L15-17)

    Full Time – starting January 2023 (or flexible for the right candidate)

    Sacred Heart is a Primary School in which the Catholic ethos is evident in the relationships between all children and adults and in the prayer life of the school.  We work together as a community to provide a happy, secure and stimulating environment where children are motivated to learn, are valued as individuals and encouraged to meet their full potential.

    Every child is:

    • valued and respected as an individual
    • listened to and encouraged to participate fully
    • encouraged to take responsibility for their actions
    • motivated to do their best in everything

    We offer learning experiences which:

    • are fun, stimulating, creative and “hands-on”
    • encourage children to be environmentally aware
    • help them to think how their actions impact on others, locally and globally

    Sacred Heart is a highly supportive school, rated Good by OFSTED and we are looking for a driven school leader to complete our journey to Outstanding, in line with our Section 48 Inspection outcome.  This is an exciting opportunity for someone who wishes to develop their career as the successful candidate will be joining a strong Multi Academy Trust committed to staff development and a school which benefits from excellent facilities and resources in a bright and welcoming building located in the north of Peterborough.

    The Governors are seeking to appoint a well-qualified, ethos driven and capable senior leader to take the helm of our happy and high achieving school.  The successful candidate will have a proven track record of success as a middle or senior leader and will commit themselves to further improving Teaching and Learning in Sacred Heart.

    We welcome applications from candidates at the cusp of school Leadership, as well as strong established leaders.  Applications are sought from practising Catholics who will develop further our Catholic ethos; or from non Catholics who are supportive of the ethos and who may be offered the post on an initial 2 year basis.
