Academy Principal

Holy Family Primary is an academy and part of the Kent Catholic Schools’ Partnership, a Catholic multi-academy trust. It is seeking to appoint an enthusiastic and professional Academy Principal from September 2019.

Reporting to the Executive Principal, our Academy Principal will be responsible for the day-to-day leadership and management of the academy and will lead a team that continually works together under the academy’s motto “Love Jesus, love learning, love each other”.

The successful applicant will take the lead role in providing inspirational Catholic education based on Gospel Values and will be seen by pupils and parents as the person directing their learning, and as the academy’s pastoral leader. As a Catholic Academy, we are seeking to appoint a practising Catholic to this post. We pride ourselves on the nurturing 'family' atmosphere and Christian ethos that is experienced by everyone who works in or visits our academy.

Holy Family Primary is a one form entry Catholic academy located in the south of Maidstone, serving the Parish of South Maidstone and the local area, and its recent denominational inspection (S48) judged that it offers a ‘Good’ Catholic education. Its last Ofsted inspection concluded ‘Requires Improvement’ overall and we hope this will change for the better at re-inspection shortly.

A visit to our academy is strongly encouraged and can be booked by contacting the academy office at office@holyfamily.kent.sch.uk

Holy Family is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and requires all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Offers of employment will be subject to an enhanced disclosure and barring service (DBS) check and S128 check.
