Class Teacher job summary

Thank you for your interest in working for Steel City Schools Partnership. As a Multi-Academy Trust with a very clear vision and ambition, Trustees are keen to ensure they recruit and retain the highest calibre of candidates to be part of Steel City Schools Partnership to provide the very best education possible to the children we serve.

To provide an excellent education for all

Achieving Excellence Sustaining Excellence Sharing Excellence

Steel City Schools Partnership was formed on April 1st 2013 following a long-established partnership between three local schools – Fox Hill Primary, Mansel Primary and Monteney Primary. Following a period of improvement, SCSP welcomed two new schools to the Trust – Greenhill Primary and Windmill Hill Primary – both on February 1st 2018. Woodseats Primary joined SCSP on September 1st 2019, Brook House Junior on April 1st 2021, Lound Infant and Lound Junior joined on September 1st 2021 and Bankwood became our tenth school, joining us on April 1st 2023. The Trust is delighted to be working with Derbyshire and Sheffield Local Authorities and with more schools who are considering joining SCSP.

The Multi-Academy Trust has been established to ensure a primary-led partnership of schools with an ambition to work closely with other academies and schools in both formal and informal arrangements. The Trust aims to provide a high-quality learning environment that inspires and motivates children, staff and the wider community to engage in education and learning. The “To provide an excellent education for all” philosophy drives policy, practice and governance in order to achieve this. Leadership development, succession planning and capacity building are also priorities for the Trust.

As a Multi Academy Trust we work closely and value greatly our relationship with a number of local and regional partners, being a Strategic Partner with the regional Teaching School Hub, Great Heights. SCSP has been very successful with our CPD programme and outreach work, leading training for a range of educational and leadership programmes. We have lead staff who are subject experts at all levels of the current National Professional Qualifications. Our CEO is a National Leader of Educations and an Ofsted Inspector, as is one of the EDSI.

Our success is due to our biggest and most valuable asset – our staff team. SCSP can offer you:

  • Guidance of a supportive and experienced executive team who invest in the development of their leaders
  • Access to healthcare and wellbeing services
  • Encouragement for further and continued professional development
  • Pension Scheme

Academies currently within Steel City Schools Partnership:

Bankwood Primary

Bankwood Primary joined SCSP in April 2023 after a period of working with SCSP since May 2022. This partnership was a result of brokerage by Sheffield LA to support the school at a time of no leadership, governance and awaiting publication of the Ofsted report. As a school in Special Measures, there is much to do, however there is a real willingness and passion from all staff who are deeply committed to the school and community. The school has approximately 70% of the pupils deemed to be disadvantaged and serves an area of diverse and complex need. Headteacher - Sarah Reynolds

Brook House Junior

Brook House is a good school (Ofsted – November 2022). It is a larger than average, 3 form entry Junior School, situated in the South East of Sheffield. The school serves a close knit community and has wonderful external grounds, backing onto the Rother Valley Park. The school is popular within the community with many pupils coming to the school from outside the catchment area.

Brook House works closely with its feeder infant school, Beighton Nursery Infant, its secondary, Westfield as well as with other local and regional schools Headteacher – Richard Fairgreave (from Sept 2024)

Fox Hill

Fox Hill is a successful school (Ofsted Good - July 2019) in the north of Sheffield serving predominantly the Fox Hill estate. The school has approximately 57% of the cohort deemed disadvantaged pupils and also hosts an Integrated Resource base for 21 pupils with ‘complex and multiple’ special educational needs. The school was rehoused in a new building in 2015.

Fox Hill works closely with the local secondary school and is a graduated English Hub (Whiston Worrygoose) network school for early reading and phonics. Headteacher – Annali Crawford

Greenhill

Greenhill Primary is a highly effective school (Ofsted Good July 2022) serving the Greenhill village and Low Edges community in the south of the city. Since joining SCSP in February 2018, the school has made significant progress in raising the outcomes and progress for the pupils. SCSP are delighted that an IR for 12 children with SEMH/ASD opened on site in October 2022 and the previous pre-school provision, became a school-led nursery in April 2023. Headteacher – Scott Ellin

Lound Infant and Lound Junior

Operating on 2 sites, Lound Infant and Lound Junior, formally Lound Academy Trust, joined SCSP in September 2021. Both schools are Good (Infant November 2022 and Junior September 2022) and serve the Burncross / Chapeltown area. Lound works closely with the other SCSP and locality schools in the north of the city as well as with its feeder secondary Ecclesfield. Headteacher – Sarah Palmer

Mansel

Mansel is a school with a real sense of community and inclusive culture (Ofsted Good- March 2023) in the north of the city serving the Parson Cross estate. Approximately 62% of the pupils are deemed to be disadvantaged yet despite this challenge, has recorded very strong outcomes. The school has benefited from strong leadership and governance. Mansel works closely with the neighbouring secondary school and is a graduated English Hub (Whiston Worrygoose) network school for early reading and phonics. Headteacher – Emily Matthews

Monteney

Monteney (Ofsted Good – March 2023) serves the Parson Cross and Shiregreen estates in the north of the city. Approximately 30% of the pupils are deemed to be disadvantaged.

Monteney is a target English Hub (Whiston Worrygoose) network school for early reading and phonics. Headteacher – Nicola Osborne

Windmill Hill

Windmill Hill Primary (Ofsted Good – June 2022) joined SCSP in February 2018 after a period of time working in conjunction with the CEO. Windmill Hill serves the Burncross / Chapeltown area in north Sheffield. The biggest challenge facing the school is the condition of the building and in December 2022 the Trust were delighted to hear from the DfE that the school was going to be rebuilt under the schools rebuilding programme. The school has made an application to reduce pupil numbers (45) due to a fall in the local birth rate in September 2023. These are planned to increase back to 60 in 2027. Headteacher – Simon Plant

Woodseats

Woodseats Primary (Ofsted Good - March 2024) joined SCSP in September 2019 after a period of collaboration with Greenhill Primary. The school is housed within a Victorian building, and is based in the south of the city on the Chesterfield Road (A61). The school has approximately 33% of the pupils deemed to be disadvantaged yet recorded results in 2022 that were broadly line with national in all key stages. Headteacher – Jack Fellowes

I trust this flavour of SCSP excites you as much as it does us. We still have much to do across our schools, especially Bankwood, including ensuring standards are maintained and increased at all key stages. With the dedicated team and collaborative approach, we are well placed to build on our many strengths.

We have both permanent and temporary positions available. Please contact the school directly to arrange a visit.
