Job summary

We are excited to be recruiting a Principal at Atlas Academy as our Trust appointed Executive Principal retires and we look to secure its substantive Principal for the next phase of its development.

Atlas is on an exciting improvement journey with new senior leaders and a clear plan for its future success. The team have introduced some strong initiatives such as a tightly coherent phonics scheme and a knowledge rich curriculum. Staff are flourishing from the additional training and support given by our Trust Central Team as well as Read Write Inc, Early Excellence and the Primary Knowledge Curriculum team.

Leaders have introduced incremental coaching to support improving pedagogy and included pupil voice in their school improvement activity to drive successful improvements in behaviour, learning and healthy eating. We now seek the right leader who will embrace these firm foundations and move it to a secure Good on its next inspection.

• Instill an ethos of high expectations for achievement and behaviour for all pupils

• Maintain strong working relationships with the community, agencies, and stakeholders, including parents and LECC members
• Oversee staffing allocation, including support staff, across the academy

We are looking for individuals who have:
• Effective management styles that encourages participation, innovation and confidence
• Experience of having helped lead a school that provides an excellent education for its pupils and has an excellent standard of teaching and learning.
