What the school offers its staff

At Howden Junior School and Howden C of E Infant School we provide a friendly, stimulating environment, which allows each child to respond positively to opportunities, challenges and responsibilities. We encourage pupils to work both independently and co-operatively, to think creatively and critically and to solve their own problems.

Within the Education Alliance Multi Academy Trust, there are lots of opportunities for collaboration and also further opportunities to develop and progress. As a trust, we are here to make great schools and happier, stronger communities so that people have better lives. For too long in many schools, staff have been asked to choose between being seen as good at their job and being a good mum, dad, partner, son, daughter or friend. We are doing everything we can to support our staff to balance the demands of their jobs and those at home.

To support this, we:

Trust our staff to plan, prepare and assess at the best time for them, allowing them to go off-site in their PPA

Have centralised our Behaviour Policy so teachers are freed up from supervising detentions

Demand ethical leadership built on professional trust

Reject fads and ensure our CPD is evidence-informed and predominantly subject specific

Have reduced data collections to twice yearly

Do not expect staff to respond to emails outside normal working hours

Do not deploy staff at other Trust schools unless it is at their request

We have removed the following:

Performance management objectives and performance-related pay

Lesson observations and high stakes, toxic accountability

Onerous marking policies

Requirements for daily or weekly lesson plans

Above all, we recognise that seeking to remove the number of tasks staff undertake will have little effect on improving work/home balance if this happens within a toxic culture. To support this, we offer training for our leaders to ensure they are able to translate our values into behaviours which are built on the principles of dignity, respect, professionalism and integrity.

About the schools

Multi-academy trust

The Education Alliance Multi-Academy Trust was established in 2015 so that South Hunsley School and Sixth Form College could support the setting up of Hunsley Primary School, the East Riding’s first Free School. In February 2016, Malet Lambert School, an 11-16 school in Hull, joined the trust and the following year, Driffield School and Sixth Form joined as a sponsored academy. The Snaith School, an 11-16 school joined us in April 2019 and North Cave CE Primary School in November 2019. Howden Junior School joined us October 2022 followed by Wilberfoss CE Primary School in May 2023. Howden CE Infant School joined us in September 2023 followed by Naburn CE Primary School who joined on 1 October as a sponsored academy.

In addition to the ten schools, the trust also operates Yorkshire Wolds Teacher Training, the only Outstanding SCITT based in East Yorkshire, which is training a new generation of primary and secondary teachers in East Riding and Hull.

Our people:

The Education Alliance is led by CEO, Jonny Uttley, who is an experienced Headteacher and a National Leader of Education. Ethical leadership is at the heart of everything we do and we believe in the importance of local leadership and governance to keep our schools at the heart of the communities they serve. All our leaders have a strong moral obligation to the success of all our young people and it is through a genuine commitment to team working that we seek to add value to all our schools.

Our purpose:

We are here to make great schools and happier, stronger communities so that people have better lives.

The way we do this is by:

Always doing what is right
Trusting in each other and standing shoulder to shoulder
Doing what we know makes the difference
Doing what is right means always acting with integrity, in the interests of others, and being honest, open and transparent.
