What the school offers its staff

Our Beliefs – Culture and Benefits

  • Our goal is to strip away the unnecessary and focus on the important stuff – making our schools the best possible environments for our young people.
  • There is no expectation or belief that getting to school early or staying late is the only way of showing you’re working hard. All staff should work in a way that suits them, making sure that they have time for themselves and their loved ones.
  • No lesson observation gradings, no showcase lessons, no tick sheet approach – we focus on a culture of typicality and will always work at developing a positive and inclusive culture of support and challenge.
  • No expectations to answer emails out of school working hours.
  • Open door senior leadership across the organisation – no issue is ever too small to discuss if it’s important to you.
  • A strong focus on mental health and wellbeing – staff with responsibility for ensuring that there are resources and signposting for any staff that need support.
  • In house leadership development programmes as well as access to various NPQ courses.
  • SSLP Star of the Term – each term headteachers and SLT will be asked to nominate staff for this award. The winning member of staff will be presented with a £50 voucher for a local restaurant / pub.
  • Every member of staff in each school is entitled to 2 x wellbeing half days. These can be requested in advance and can be for any reason.

Our Beliefs - Workload

  • No need or expectation to write or rewritelessonplans in a particular format.
  • An assessment and marking policy which significantly reduces workload by moving from “marking” culture to an effective assessment culture.
  • A goal of ensuring that there is no more than one cover lesson per half term, less if possible.
  • Data will never be asked for twice in different contexts.
  • A maximum of 3 data collection points per year group.
  • If a new policy or practice is introduced we will strive to take away something old, ensuring that we review everything we do annually.
  • Consultation on key policies which include workload assessments.
