Further Information

The Directors of St Thomas More Partnership of Schools Trust wish to appoint an experienced and successful school leader for St Matthew's Catholic Primary school. This is an exciting opportunity for an existing Head, or a senior leader looking for their first headship, within the supportive environment of a Catholic Multi-Academy trust. Applications are invited from practising and committed Catholic teachers. The children in our school “model their good behaviour on the positive adults around them. They showed kindness and consideration towards each other, held doors open unbidden by adults and listened respectfully when others were talking. Innovative ideas contribute well to the strengths evident in pupils’ personal, social and emotional skills development” (Ofsted, 2018) and we are looking for someone who is determined to provide them with the very best education possible and lead our school into its next chapter, driving the continued improvement and growth of the school.

We are looking for someone who:
- Places the development of faith at the heart of the community and continues to develop the Catholic life of our children in partnership with our local parish Our Lady and St Cuthbert’s.
- Working with the Governing Body, develops and communicates compellingly the school’s vision and whose strategic leadership empowers all pupils and staff to excel.
- Understands how children learn and the development of an engaging, imaginative and challenging curriculum which is rooted in the context in which the children live.
- Works effectively in partnership with parents and the local community.

We can offer:

- A school that is at the heart of the local community.
- Children who are eager and willing to learn and confident in their school environment;
- A unified and skilled team which is unwavering in its determination to excel;
- Governors who are committed to supporting and challenging the school to secure the best outcomes for children;
- A school that is part of a multi-academy trust of high calibre schools, offering opportunities for support and sharing of good practice and resources.

If you wish to be part of our ‘outstanding’ future, we look forward to hearing from you!
