  • Builds rapport with children, parents and colleagues

  • Will ensure the ethos of the school is upheld

  • Is willing to participate fully in school life, share good practice with colleagues and be able to lead a curriculum subject across the school(depending on experience.)

We can offer:

  • Enthusiastic children who love learning

  • A positive environment where all children are able to learn and achieve

  • A dedicated, supportive staff committed to improving standards, who are also friendly and caring

(Pupils..) “are motivated and excited to learn.”

“ Leaders, including the governing body, have considered and reduced staff workload. Staff, including those who are at the start of their careers, appreciate the support they receive from all leaders and the multi-academy trust.”

“Ensuring the safety of pupils is a top priority at this school.”

Education has the power to change lives, communities and society for the better. At RLT we believe that we can achieve more for our pupils, trainees, staff and communities by working together rather than alone.

OUR ‘HOW?’ is through the highest support and challenge for our schools and each other, underpinned by our principles.

Our employees benefit from a wide variety of support including extensive continuing professional learning and development opportunities, wellbeing and staff networks and access to Defined Benefit Pension Schemes (TPS and LGPS) for all staff. For more information on what it is like to work for the Trust, and the benefits you could access, please see our “Working in RLT” guide.
