Why Work at St Joan Of Arc

Our commitment to our staff

The governors, headteacher and senior leadership team are committed to recruiting high quality teaching and support staff to support the development of the students we serve at our school. We are committed to supporting the continuing professional development of all our staff and to ensuring that St Joan of Arc Catholic School remains a stimulating and pleasant environment in which to work. 

The success of our students is underpinned by our excellent staff and the strong partnership that is nurtured between school, parents, governors, trustees, past students and the local community.

We are affiliated to several local Teaching School Alliance's (TSA's) and School Centred Initial Teacher Training (SCITT) providers to help develop and train teaching and support staff. We actively seek to develop the capacity of our existing staff and provide leadership opportunities to enable successful career progression.

As an employer we provide all staff with a suitable induction programme and mentor where new to leadership positions. The opportunity to engage with further academic research through assisted MA qualifications, research projects and secondment opportunities enables our staff to remain at the leading edge of education.

The school also offers all staff access to an Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) to support mental health and wellbeing, as well as schemes such as 'Cycle to Work'.

Please contact Mr G Doyle, (Deputy Head Teacher) for more information and an informal discussion on how we may be able to support you career aspirations.

St. Joan of Arc Catholic School is committed to the protection and safety of its pupils and all posts are subject to a satisfactory enhanced DBS check.
