Current Vacancies

Due to the promotion of our current Assistant Headteacher to a Catholic Headship post in the Diocese of Shrewsbury:

Salary: Leadership Spine L3-L7

Sacred Heart R.C. Primary School is a large primary school & Teaching School Alliance serving the Westhoughton area of the Diocese of Salford.  We pride ourselves on our nurturing approach. At Sacred Heart all staff and pupils belong to a Spirit fuelled team, where respect, resilience, empathy, confidence, ambition and independence help us shine in our academic life and beyond. These are key qualities we believe all our pupils need to discover their gift to transform society and be happy in life.

We also need these qualities in our staff members – do you have these qualities?

Our Governing Board wishes to appoint a dynamic, energetic and hard-working Assistant Headteacher, who is also organised, approachable and able to build excellent relationships based on mutual trust and respect.

It is essential that the post holder will add to the positive Catholic ethos of Sacred Heart, for the benefit of our wider team, by being willing to take a full part in the life of our successful school.

The post holder will work closely with all staff, including support staff, teachers, middle and senior leaders.

We need a highly motivated, innovative teacher, who has very high expectations in order:

  • To work as a member of the Strategic Leadership Team to lead the school effectively, improve our already high standards of learning & teaching, and achieve better outcomes for all pupils;
  • To actively model and promote the Catholic values and ethos of the school;
  • To purposefully support and energise our middle leaders, helping to support all staff across the school;
  • To offer an excellent and professional model of classroom teaching, setting and maintaining high standards of work and behaviour in and out of the classroom as an example for others.

We are not specifying all the key responsibilities as we want to find the right person for the role and we can negotiate areas of responsibility to suit the right candidate.

Initially, there will not be a class teaching commitment. However, this will only be for two terms, then any year group is possible…
