St Joseph’s Primary 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 an inspirational and dedicated Academy Principal from September 2022 due to the retirement of the current post-holder.
St Joseph’s is a one-form entry primary academy located in Northfleet, serving the Parish of Our Lady of Assumption and the local area.
St Joseph’s is an inclusive academy. Its dedicated staff, helpers and governance committee members work hard to ensure that every student is supported and challenged to be their very best. Each individual is encouraged to grow spiritually and intellectually, so that unique and positive contributions can be made to society and the world. Its most recent denominational inspection in January 2020 judged it as ‘Outstanding’ and its most recent Ofsted inspection in May 2009 judged the academy to be ‘Outstanding’. St Joseph’s are seeking a new Academy Principal who will continue to build upon and further develop the excellent work and foundations that the academy has in place.
Reporting to the Executive Principal, the Academy Principal will be responsible for the day-to-day leadership and management of the academy and will lead a team that strive together for children following the academy’s values of “Love, Respect, Belonging, Joy, Kindness, Wisdom”.
The successful applicant will take the lead role in providing inspirational Catholic education based on our shared Gospel values, and will be seen by pupils, parents and carers, and the wider parish as the person directing their learning, and as the academy’s pastoral leader. We are therefore seeking to appoint a practising Catholic to this role.
Visits to the academy are warmly encouraged and will give you the opportunity to see all that this wonderful setting has to offer. Please contact the academy’s office on 01474 533 515 to arrange your visit.
