What skills and experience we're looking for

We are looking for a School Improvement Lead to join our Trust. The Roseland Multi-Academy Trust consists of three secondary schools, two primary schools and a Teaching School Hub. The Trust’s mission is “to provide outstanding education for our communities, where everyone succeeds” and we put our staff at the heart of everything we do to create a team spirit in our highly successful schools.

The School Improvement Lead will be employed to work Trust-wide ensuring quality assurance and school improvement across our settings. You will join our Trust Improvement Team (TRIP), be supported by the Senior School Improvement Lead and CEO and will work within our Trust Executive Team, leading the development and use of quality assurance systems and improvement strategies.

This is a role for an aspiring leader who has the ability to critically evaluate educational processes, procedures, systems and policies to enable rapid and sustained improvements in aspects of the overall effectiveness of a school. The post-holder will be able to quickly form strong professional relationships with school leaders, gain their confidence and provide high level coaching that enables them to achieve their school’s ambitions. You will have experience of outstanding practice in areas of the inspection framework and will have experience of successfully leading change for improvement that has positively impacted on students’ attendance, behaviours and engagement in their learning. The ability to model best practice, use the best researched informed strategies, present in complete confidence and gain staff, student and parent confidence is essential.

What the school offers its staff

The School Improvement Lead will join the Trust Improvement Team (TRIP) which is led by a Senior School Improvement Lead. As well as another full time School Improvement Lead, we have also seconded, for a fixed term, a School Improvement Lead who has a maths focus across the Trust. You will work closely with the team, the CEO and the Executive Leadership Team, which includes our Executive Headteacher for our primary schools and our three secondary Headteachers. Within the Executive Team you will also liaise with our CFO and Human Resources Manager. It is a close team and one that likes to challenge for improvement. The Trust also has external school advisers, one for primary and one for secondary. It will be important to work closely with our external advisers and establish strong working relationships that critically evaluate each school’s improvement plans and their journey in achieving them.

Further details about the role

This role is crucially important in the next step of our journey in achieving our mission. All of our schools have improved since joining the Trust. The Roseland Academy went to Outstanding in 2017 and will be inspected within the next academic year. The outcomes remain high and our Trust Improvement Team’s role will be to quality assure all aspects of school life to ensure The Roseland Academy continues to offer outstanding education.

Our primary schools, Gerrans School and Tregony Community Primary School, are led by an Executive Headteacher and are both Good schools. Tregony Community Primary School has gone from strength to strength and has excellent outcomes. Gerrans School provides strong personal development and excellent extra opportunities for its pupils and is currently developing its curriculum intent and implementation in line with Tregony Community Primary School.

The Trust sponsored Treviglas Academy in 2019 as an Inadequate school and re-brokered Falmouth School in 2020, also graded Inadequate. Both schools are improving and this year received Requires Improvement in their most recent OFSTED reports. Both schools have new Leadership Teams and are on a good trajectory of school improvement.

If you are ambitious for school improvement and can collaborate effectively, then this is an exciting opportunity. We are looking for applicants who can think and deliver strategically, work well within an executive team to establish strong trusting but challenging relationships to ensure our schools go from strength to strength.

Commitment to safeguarding

The Roseland Multi Academy Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, and expects all staff to share this commitment. Everyone who comes into contact with children and their families and carers has a role to play in safeguarding children. In order to fulfil this responsibility effectively, all professionals should make sure their approach is child-centred. This means that they should consider, at all times, what is in the best interests of the child.
