  • Be an excellent organiser and communicator with a proactive and friendly attitude
  • Have a commitment to on-going personal and professional development
  • Value diversity, equity and inclusion and have high expectations for every child
  • Be innovative and creative
  • Be an effective team player and contribute to the whole school community

We value each other’s identity and we are committed to promoting opportunities for all by ensuring equity across the MAT. Together, we learn and grow by embracing multiple perspectives, experiences and cultures. Our differences are our strengths.
