Sacred Heart Catholic Primary School & Nursery - Vacancies

Class Teacher

Passionate about making a difference to children's lives? This is an exciting opportunity to have a significant and real impact on outcomes for children.

Sacred Heart Catholic Primary School and Nursery is a friendly, caring school serving the parishes of Sacred Heart and St John Fisher in Southend-On-Sea, and are part of the Assisi Catholic Trust. The Governors of our school invite applications for the following position that will help us as we grow.

We are looking for a bright, talented, passionate teacher who can bring a love of learning to our school. This position could be an EYFS, KS1 or KS2 role. We have nearly finished our journey of expanding to a two-form entry school - we are yet to add a second form in Years 5 and 6; so, an interest toteach in Year 5/6 would be an advantage, but not essential.

We welcome applications from NQTs who can demonstrate their potential and enthusiasm for teaching and learning. This post offers a fantastic opportunity for a teacher looking for their first challenge, in a supportive, nurturing work environment.

As we are expanding year on year, we are also interested in applications from teachers who are aspiring to leadership within the future. Inspirational teaching is important to us, so we are interested to hear from those who lead from example within their classrooms or have the potential to do so.

We pride ourselves on our enriching curriculum that reflects the very caring nature of the school. This is evident in the behaviour of our children who are kind and caring and who enjoy coming to school. We are proud to call ourselves an 'inclusive' school, where everyone works hard to ensure that pupils, whatever their starting point, receive stimulating learning experiences. There is a tangible sense of team spirit that permeates the school and the enrichment activities encourage learning, which is evident in the children's personal development and achievement.

Visits to the school are normally warmly welcomed; however, this is not possible at the moment. If you would like to find out more, please email the school at to schedule a telephone call with a member of our senior leadership team.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expect all staff and volunteers to support this commitment. All applications must be completed using the Catholic Education Service Application Form.

Please contact the school office via email at or call on 01702 534546 for an application pack.

Closing Date: 4th June 2020 (midday)

Interview Date: Virtual interviews to be held - week commencing 8th June 2020

All appointments are subject to safer recruitment requirements to ensure the safeguarding of children and young people. All positions will involve appropriate checks and clearances.
