Archdiocese of Birmingham

Corpus Christi Catholic Primary
A part of the Romero Catholic Multi Academy Company

Executive Principal
ISR Based on combination of pupil numbers in both their home school and Corpus Christi
One year contract in the first instance

Following the retirement of our long- standing and well respected Principal, the Directors in partnership with the Academy Committee of Corpus Christi Catholic Primary School are seeking to appoint two outstanding leaders who have the vision to create ‘moments that matter’. The school is in the process of expanding to two forms of entry.
The expectation is that the Head of School would progress to the post of Principal within a year but there would be flexibility to extend the arrangement with the agreement of the governance/schools involved.

Corpus Christi Catholic Primary School offers a wonderful, inspirational and caring environment to the parish and community it serves. The school was delighted to sustain the judgement of ‘Good’ in the recent Ofsted Section 8 inspection on March 7th 2018 which confirmed that “Pupils are keen to come to school, they settle quickly to lessons and are proud of their individual successes.”

The successful candidates will:
• Be practising Catholics committed to the ethos and purpose of Catholic education
• Have a proven record of successful leadership which has secured improved outcomes for all children at whole school level at the relevant level of experience
• Will have an analytical and robust approach to school improvement
• Will have the ability to motivate staff, pupils and parents, working in partnership
• Will be able to work together to raise the profile of the school within the wider community and with the partner schools within Romero

The Executive Principal will be a Headteacher who can relish the professional opportunity that arises from this post:
• The opportunity to extend leadership outwardly from their own school; creating learning experiences for children across both schools; professional development of staff across both sites and a way to strengthen effectiveness of governance
• The opportunity to strengthen own skills as a strategic leader to support the Head of School to develop a clear understanding and knowledge of a range of operational strategies to secure improved outcomes for students in readiness to take on the post of Principal at a later stage
• The Executive Principal is expected to have the flexibility to strategically lead over their existing school and Corpus Christi as appropriate and will be held to account by the Board of Directors.
• The candidate must have the support of their Governing Body to lead a second school.

Directors and Academy Representatives can offer:
• Wonderful children who are eager to learn in their journey of faith and learning
• A modern, vibrant school building with the benefits of a 4D learning room, fantastic grounds and stimulating learning environment
• A thriving community of faith where all children are valued and cared for
• A dedicated, hard working leadership team and staff team committed to securing the best for all pupils
• A supportive Academy Committee who are keen to challenge and assist the school to achieve its mission and vision
• A collaborative network of Principals who will support, guide and assist you to improve the quality of educational provision at Corpus Christi through the partnership in Romero.
• A forward-thinking MAC that provides HR and Finance support services centrally so you can focus on leading Corpus Christi
