A wonderful opportunity to lead our school from good to outstanding
St Joseph’s is a one-form entry primary school serving the diverse local Catholic community of Deptford (an upcoming area of South London near Greenwich increasingly popular with students and young families) where many of our pupils live.
Our school, situated off Deptford High Street, has outstanding transport links and is 7 minutes from London Bridge (by train), Canary Wharf (DLR) and a 10-minute walk from Greenwich.
Our recent Ofsted Inspection in December 2017, under the new framework, achieved a solidly Good judgement - offering our next Headteacher a strong platform to realise the school’s potential to achieve outstanding.
Following the imminent retirement of our Headteacher, applications are now sought from practising Catholic school leaders who will have the passion and desire to lead and celebrate the spiritual life of our school community.
You will be joining a vibrant and welcoming school - an exciting place to work with happy, friendly children from a range of backgrounds who are eager to learn; and well-motivated, compassionate staff who work hard to deliver a first-class education. The school is ably supported by dedicated governors committed to supporting the new Headteacher on the school’s journey towards outstanding.
If, as a first-time or existing Head, you believe you offer the leadership which inspires and motivates others towards excellence and which will ensure the very best education for our children, then we would love to hear from you.
