What the school offers its staff

To support all our staff, the Trust is committed to finding ways to ensure that your personal, financial, professional and pastoral needs are met during your time with the Trust. Wherever possible, we seek out innovative and impactful ways to add real benefits to our teams - from helping with cost-of-living pressures, ensuring that professional development is readily and easily accessible through to wellbeing assistance - to ensure the work- life balance is being managed effectively.

Professional support is key - and the Trust has worked extensively to fund critical benefits such as:

Additional non-contact time for teaching staff - over and above statutory PPA time; this equates to 15% non-contact time for class teachers.

Deploying a fully-resourced, sequenced curriculum across 11 subjects;

Unlimited access to CPD and career development through providers such as The National College and The Key;

Funding annual pay increments - having previously provided a boost even when these are frozen nationally;

Meeting or exceeding the terms set out in nationally agreed terms and conditions - for both teaching and support staff;

Clear and well-implemented policies and professional standards - in key areas like behaviour, managing parental engagement and supporting staff in challenging situations.

You’ll find a raft of programmes through our Perks at Work platform that includes benefits like:

    • An electric car-lease scheme, through Tusker;
    • Support for bicycle and IT equipment purchases via salary sacrifice schemes;
    • Cash-back on large purchases across a range of leading retailers and chains;
    • Access to our employee assistance programmes and wellbeing schemes like free eye tests for display screen users; and
    • Comprehensive access to support for staff and their families - including online fitness sessions, counselling and legal and financial advice.
    • And as an employer, we know the little things add up to happier, more productive member of staff - so we ensure:
    • Free tea and coffee in all our settings;
    • Actively implementing workload reduction measures around marking, lesson planning and data tracking;
    • Paying staff to run clubs - and fully funding all after school clubs for our pupils;
    • Minimising the impact of twilight and INSET days by planning these and managing these clearly throughout each term;
    • Systems and core infrastructures work - printers, IT devices and networks, data management platforms - all are extensively vetted, tested and maintained - reducing stress, disruption and aggravation for busy staff;
    • Consistently applying our policies in every setting - and priding ourselves on being a fair and transparent employer.

    And set above all this - the biggest benefit of working for The Lion Academy Trust is the pupils who come to our schools every day. The impact we have on their life chances and the preparation for the secondary phase of education and beyond is critical. By joining the Lion Academy Trust, in any role or function, you will directly benefit from being part of the team that has transformed the lives of every child who has attended one of our schools.
