Head of School (Primary)

Website Beaulieu Convent School, Jersey.

Head of School (Primary)

Come and join our Beaulieu family and lead our lovely Catholic Primary School for us but be part of something much bigger.

Beaulieu provides an exceptional learning environment, where children and young people aged 3-19 thrive and grow. Beaulieu offers a very special blend of excellence in pastoral and academic development for every student in our care. The combination of our Catholic tradition, established by the Sisters of the Immaculate Conception, and the unique flavor of the School provides an education that goes beyond all academic and other achievements. Strong principles rooted in our Catholic ethos, coupled with innovative teaching methods and a keen focus on real-world issues and emerging technology, all on one campus, makes Beaulieu a rich and rewarding place to learn and work.

Following a number of years of outstanding leadership by our current Head of School, and the reorganisation of our Executive Team here at Beaulieu, from September 2022 I am, on behalf of the Board of Directors, looking to recruit an outstanding Catholic Primary practitioner to join the Executive Team. The successful individual will assume pastoral and professional care on behalf of the Executive Team and the Board of Directors for all our staff, students, and parents within the Primary area of our School family.

Beaulieu Primary provides a unique environment and is a very important part of our Catholic School family. Our staff are truly committed to the ethos of the School and are dedicated and trusted professionals. This team has been entrusted with the day-to-day management of the School over the past few years, as the previous Head of School was given the opportunity to gain additional experience through leading and supporting the Secondary School, whilst maintaining her role as Head of School Primary.

The Head of School (Primary) will be accountable to me, the Executive Headteacher, and will work in deep collaboration within the Executive Team, comprising the Executive Headteacher, the Chief Operations Officer, and the Head of School (Secondary), supported by other senior leaders. The ability to work collaboratively and within such a team, for the benefit of the whole school, will be an essential prerequisite for this role.

Living and working in Jersey has many additional benefits and these are well documented on the Government of Jersey Website: https://oneteamjersey.gov.je/

This is a unique opportunity at a unique school. It is rare that senior positions within our Island Primary School sector are permitted to be advertised and recruited for off-island, especially when supported by Residential Qualifications, enabling you and your family to move to Jersey, buy a property, and remain as residents on the Island, so this is a highly sought after opportunity with major tax and lifestyle benefits.

If you are looking for an exciting new opportunity and believe that you could bring much to further strengthen our Catholic family here at Beaulieu, above all by being a professional who is called to serve others and to lead by witness and example, then I would be very interested to hear from you.
