About Ad Astra Infant School

The TEACH Multi Academy Trust was created in April 2015 and has 4 primary schools and Poole SCITT, which is an outstanding Initial Teacher Training Institution. These five organisations work together to benefit the children, their families and the local community.

Despite a very mixed catchment, we have high expectations for excellent behaviour to help children to feel safe and learn well. We are proud of our Unicef Gold Rights Respecting schools and have a ‘Children First’ philosophy in everything we do, to promote an educational experience, which is truly primary focussed.

The Trust is extremely proud of its reputation locally.

At the TEACH Trust, we pride ourselves on being forward thinking and have taken decisive action since April 2015 to make our Trust a success. The successful candidate will be employed by the Trust as a whole, and although the initial post will be based at Ad Astra Infant School, the post holder could be expected to work at any of the schools within the Trust.
