The Governors of St Mary’s School, working in partnership with another Church of England Primary School, are looking for an experienced and inspiring leader and practitioner with the ability to sustain expert teaching and provision that meets the needs of all pupils, while further enhancing the school’s Christian ethos.

The post is for Fridays only and fixed until the end of this academic year, working alongside the existing Head of School, who works Monday to Thursday. Although the job description shows all possible roles the Head of School could be asked to fulfil, the expectation for this post is proportionate to one day per week. One of the main aims will be to help develop the school’s Christian ethos and vision.

The part-time Head of School will have successful leadership experience, coupled with strong interpersonal skills. We wish the part-time postholder to focus on enhancing the school’s Christian ethos and on further improving academic achievement and personal development.

As Head of School, you will be responsible for leading the day-to-day operational function on a Friday, when the Executive Headteacher is also on site. You will report directly to the Executive Headteacher and will work with them to ensure operations are working in line with the School Improvement Plan and compliance requirements.

If you would like to discuss the details of the vacancy with Stefan Roos, the Executive Headteacher, you are warmly welcome to do so. An information pack can be found here and an application form here. These are  also available from, and returnable to, the school office via email: jobs@stmarysn3.barnetmail.net or telephone: 020 8343 0866. Please do not use the Barnet application form or CVs.
