About St Margaret's Primary Academy

Dear Candidate,

Thank you for your interest in this role at St Margaret's Primary Academy.

It's not been an easy year has it? With the worry of Covid-19 and all the challenges the year has brought with it. We understand that it has been an uncertain time. Not least for our staff, pupils and parents.

As a result, we are more determined than ever to offer our team and our children the support they need and deserve.

If you've done your research, you'll know that I was newly appointed to the role of Headteacher in September 2020. I can honestly say that we have the most welcoming, caring and collaborative team, who I know would make any new colleague feel right at home straight away.

I believe in the wellbeing of all staff members, having been a full-time class teacher only recently - I understand and can still vividly remember the pressures of the classroom. We aim to work smarter, not harder, to lead with empathy and most of all create an environment of personal and professional growth for all the people committed to making St Margaret's outstanding.

This is an opportunity to join a school, shaped in a different way. Yes, we are working to improve outcomes, environment and standards to secure a 'Good' but we don't do it for Ofsted. We do it because we are proud practitioners, who are respected, highly skilled and upskilled throughout the year. Because we are committed to giving our children the best life chances possible. And because we're St Margaret's - we remember why we do this every day and we are not afraid to break down barriers and think outside the box!

We are delighted that you are considering joining the team. If you are passionate, ready to learn, have high expectations and integrity. If you believe in working together and aren't afraid of having audacious goals then we're the school for you. (If you have a great sense of humour then that will definitely help too!)

We look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to our school.
