Vacancy: Academy Principal (Full-time role)

Grade: L11 ( £52,643 ) to L15 ( £57,986 )

 

 

St Mary’s Primary, Whitstable 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 January 2021 due to the promotion of the current post-holder. 

 

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 under the academy’s motto of “ Joy, Courage, Honesty, Excellence & Community”.

 

The successful applicant will take the lead role in providing inspirational Catholic education based on our shared Gospel values, and will be seen by students, 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.

 

St Mary’s, Whitstable is an inclusive academy. Its dedicated staff, helpers and Governors work hard to ensure that every student is supported and challenged to be their very best. In an atmosphere of mutual respect, trust and care, the St Mary’s team works together in the spirit of the Gospel to serve the local community, wider parish and the Diocese as a whole. Through mutual respect, responsibility and self-discipline each individual is encouraged to grow spiritually and intellectually so that unique and positive contributions can be made to society and the world.

 

St Mary’s Whitstable is a two-form primary academy located in Whitstable, serving the Parish of Our Lady Immaculate, Whitstable and the local area.  Its most recent denominational inspection in November 2016 judged it as ‘Good’ and its most recent Ofsted inspection in April 2018 also judged the academy to be ‘Good’ in all areas.

 

St Mary’s, Whitstable and KCSP are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, and require all staff, helpers and Governors to share this commitment. Offers of employment are subject to an enhanced disclosure and barring service check and section 128 check.
