The governors are seeking to appoint a dynamic, forward-thinking, approachable and enthusiastic practising Catholic leader who will continue to build on the recent improvement of our Academy. St Aidan’s was identified as Requires Improvement by Ofsted in December 2018 with the school coming out of Special Measures after  ‘rapid and significant progress’ recognised by HMI in previous monitoring visits. Personal Development, Behaviour and Welfare has been recognised as ‘good’, with HMI commenting that ‘pupils’ behaviour is consistently good in and around school. They are considerate of the needs of others, welcoming and keen to learn.’(Ofsted December 2018)
The governors will be looking for a Headteacher to continue this development and drive the school quickly towards being good and, ultimately, outstanding.

We are looking for a new Headteacher who has:

  • a clear vision of excellence in Catholic primary education
  • leadership skills of the highest quality, and who is able to motivate, inspire and support a committed staff
  • outstanding classroom-practitioner skills, with a secure  knowledge of the curriculum
  • high expectations of pupils, their progress, achievement and behaviour, and who will encourage a supportive and positive environment in which the children are fully focused on their learning
    experience at senior leadership level with strong interpersonal and communication skills
  • direct experience of headship (governors will consider a confident senior leader who can demonstrate  their skill set and where their capabilities match the role)
  • the vision to promote and enhance our Catholic ethos in partnership with the parish and local community
  • a proven track record in delivering school improvement.

In return we can offer you:

  • an academy committed to maintaining its excellent Catholic ethos
  • a staff committed to high-quality teaching and learning and a culture where everyone is valued and encouraged to succeed
  • a dedicated leadership team, collegiality of staff and a strong complement of Catholic teachers
  • supportive parents and local community who are keen to support the academy on its journey to outstanding
