Vacancies at OLOL

This page will show any current vacancies at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Primary School. Please note that we require all applications to be downloaded, and posted/delivered to school once they are signed and dated (unless the advert specifically says that email is an alternative submission method).


We advise any applicants to make an appointment to visit the school so that you can see our Mission in action and determine if OLOL is the place for you!  In addition you can look at our website and our Twitter page


It is very important that anyone applying for a vacancy at OLOL reads our Safeguarding Page and attached Safeguarding Policy, as well as any supplementary paperwork on this page, to be fully advised of all expectations and checks that will be undertaken in the event of an offer of employment being made. No unconditional employment offers will be made and all checks completed before any employment is confirmed. Application forms should be completed fully, following the instructions in the document, with no gaps (so please write N/A in any space that does not require an answer from you). Incomplete forms are likely to be rejected at the shortlisting stage. 


Applicants for posts at OLOL will be asked to provide qualification and identity check evidence at interview. In addition, relevant online checks will be made. Please bring the original of any document you are asked for and ensure that office staff are made aware of any name changes so that searches on all known names can be made.  


All applicants should read the OLOL Pay Policy to ensure they understand how their pay will be calculated on appointment (attached below) and are happy with the terms. Salary negotiations will not take place once in post. 


Online searches

The Governors reserve the right (in line with KCSIE guidance) as part of the shortlisting process to consider carrying out an online search as part of our due diligence on shortlisted candidates. This may help us to identify any incidents or issues that have happened, and are publicly available online, which the school might want to explore with any applicant at their interview.
