Our school is a very happy, warm and well-resourced place to learn and work and we are looking for a new head to deepen and refine practice even further as we move towards our next inspection.
To support our development, in April 2019 we officially became a founding member of the Children First Learning Partnership Multi Academy Trust. Whilst allowing us to remain as a school with our own unique identity and agreed autonomy, we pride ourselves in being the provider of a range of mentoring and coaching support across the MAT as well as being active participants in a range of networking and leadership development activities. This membership has provided our school with many additional opportunities to grow leaders of the future. Staff turnover is extremely low as all staff continue to thrive on new challenges and strong CPD opportunities provided for them.
The successful applicant will be on the Executive Board of the MAT and will be responsible for ensuring the strategic plans for the school are implemented effectively. In return, you will be fully supported and professionally developed by an experienced CEO and highly professional centralised team of staff. Please visit www.childrenfirstlp.org.uk for further information about the Trust.
