We are a one-form entry catholic primary school with a big heart and lots of promise.
Our Lady and St Brendan’s Catholic Primary School is looking for a substantive Headteacher following the retirement of our previous Executive Headteacher at the end of the Autumn Term.
OLSB was graded RI by Ofsted in June 2017 but in the latest follow up section 8 inspection we were judged to be “taking effective action” to be good. This combined with a steady, upward trend in pupil progress offers our next Headteacher a wonderful opportunity to lead a school community already determined to be judged good at its next inspection.
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.
If, as an existing Headteacher looking for their next challenge (or indeed a Deputy Head/exceptional Assistant Head looking for their first step into Headship) you believe you can offer the leadership which inspires others towards excellence and which will ensure the very best education for our children, then we would love to hear from you.
A requirement of the post is that applicants must be practising catholics.
You will be fully supported by committed and experienced Governors as well as an LA and diocesan team offering a bespoke package of coaching and mentoring to support your particular needs, as well as the practical and strategic support as an established member of the Bradford Catholic Schools Partnership Teaching Schools Alliance.
