What skills and experience we're looking for

The right candidate will work alongside an experienced and committed governing body to lead the school to further success. We are looking for someone who can build on the good work of the current headteacher and provide children with an exceptionally high-quality educational experience. If this sounds like your next step, you will need to be someone who:

  • Values, promotes and celebrates our core Christian values in all that they do.
  • Locates children at the heart of all their work.
  • Inspires colleagues to be the very best that they can be.
  • Provides expertise in primary practice.
  • Works with resilience, integrity and courage.
  • Brings exceptionally high expectations to all that they do.

What the school offers its staff

You will be supported by a Trust that does things differently: we aren’t corporate - and we don’t impose pedagogical policies. We don’t shift teachers around at little notice and we know that strength lies in the quality of our people. Critically, we are ego-free and work together to place the best interests of pupils at the center of every decision and action. You will join our Senior Leadership Team of headteachers to move both St Mary’s and the wider Trust forward. This really is a Trust that you can trust.

In return for your commitment, we will provide exciting opportunities supported through bespoke CPD, tailored specifically to your needs. You will be directly supported by the academy improvement team and will benefit from the wider support of our expert practitioners. We want you to stay in this Trust and will find opportunities to keep you interested and excited about your work.

Further details about the role

This is a rare chance to make a huge difference, to join a school at the heart of its community, and an organisation that is looking to be the best Multi Academy Trust that nobody has heard of (that’s deliberate).

If you are interested, please contact the academy on 01623 822518 to arrange a visit.

Application packs are available available via the SNMAT website https://www.snmat.org.uk/vacancies/ or email: Sarah Edwards - sedwards@snmat.org.uk

Commitment to safeguarding

SNMAT is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of young people and expects all staff to share this commitment. The successful applicant will be subject to appropriate child protection screening including checks with previous employers and undertake an enhanced DBS
