Following the success of the current Principal, who has been appointed to the role of Headteacher at St Modwen’s Catholic Primary School Burton-upon-Trent, the Board of Directors in partnership with the Academy Committee, seek an innovative and vibrant leader who will embrace and enjoy all that has been achieved at Saint Patrick’s. We are looking for a Principal, who will ensure that in a fast-changing educational landscape, the school continues to develop a reputation as a ‘beacon of excellence for Catholic Education.’
This is an exciting time to lead our school, as Saint Patrick’s has been on an upward trajectory of school improvement. As the 21st Century evolves, envisioning what Catholic schools will look like in the future requires openness and imagination. We are looking for a Principal to play their full and effective part in the educational provision of that future, through a Christ-centred Servant Leadership approach.

Support for Senior leaders
Saint Patrick’s is a wonderful one-form entry school, full of motivated and happy children in the North East of Coventry. Set in beautiful grounds with the Parish in close proximity, taking up the post of Principal at Saint Patrick’s is an opportunity for an aspiring leader to work in collaboration with an enthusiastic team of staff and pupils in partnership with schools across the Multi-Academy Company. The school is overdue an Ofsted inspection from March 2020 therefore we propose to fully support a new leader coming into post.
If the successful candidate is not currently a Principal/ Headteacher and they are progressing from a Senior leadership position as an Assistant Vice Principal/ Headteacher or Vice Principal/ Deputy Headteacher role, high quality support will be provided during the Summer term of 2021 from Mrs Dee Williams, Interim Executive Principal.
Due to the impending Ofsted Inspection (as the school is currently judged as ‘Requiring Improvement’) we want to ensure the successful candidate is fully supported through their first term. The offer of an Executive Principal is part of our induction package to ensure the Principal has a supportive start to their career. The Executive Principal role will be withdrawn when appropriate.
If the successful candidate is an existing Principal, then appropriate support will be tailored for their needs according to experience through our usual Principal Induction programme.
This school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people/venerable adults and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
We look forward to hearing from you and to meeting you.
