What skills and experience we're looking for

We are seeking an outstanding practitioner, who is an innovative, responsible and insightful professional, with the passion, drive, and enthusiasm to build on Silkmore Primary Academy’s considerable strengths.

You will be able to lead, motivate, develop, and inspire a school team of staff and governors who are passionately committed to giving pupils a wide range of real-life and enriching experiences, within a culture of the highest expectations.

You will demonstrate a clear understanding of what it takes for a school to retain an ‘Outstanding’ judgement and the competency to lead the school to another ‘Outstanding’ outcome. In addition, you will be able to demonstrate your ability to manage, prioritise and organise your workload, to show flexibility and resilience and recognise the need for pastoral care for all members of the community of the school.

Our mission is to work together to create a school that thinks and dreams big for its pupils. We like to think of Silkmore as a family, that embraces everyone in its community, from pupils and staff to governors, parents and carers.

We live and breathe our school motto: Aim High, Achieve Together. This message underpins everything that we do, be that in the classroom, the sports field or in the wider community.

Our bespoke creative mini mission curriculum enriches children's learning experiences and it shows that a love of learning is fostered in every child, in every classroom every day. It is delivered through a wealth of relevant, real-life problem-solving opportunities where Connexions are made between subjects. A lively curriculum is designed to be varied and engaging and as a result, children are absorbed in their learning, actively seeking ways to overcome any obstacles that they may meet.

What the school offers its staff

  • A wide range of professional development opportunities and the opportunity to work with some of the best educational professionals in the country,
  • Membership of the Teacher’s Pension Scheme TPS,
  • Access to professional coaching and mentoring,
  • Annual leadership events, workshops and conferences,
  • Performance related bonus against agreed KPIs

As part of REAch2 employee benefits we also offer an eye care scheme, access to an Employee Assistance Programme for you and your immediate family and membership to ‘perks at work’ – which includes discounts on holidays, shopping, family days out and much more.

Further details about the role

Please be aware that all short listed candidates will be required to complete a REAch2 Application form prior to interview.
