About Stuart Road Primary School
School Background: Pilgrim Academy is a friendly, caring and welcoming place, with children's learning, happiness and well-being at the heart of all we do. We understand that children will only get the best education when there are strong and respectful relationships between both pupils, staff, parents and the wider community.
We want the pupils in our school to receive a broad range of experiences alongside a high quality academic education, being inquisitive and active learners with a strong set of moral values. The skills and values of collaboration, respect, ambition, endeavour, responsibility and thoughtfulness are woven through our curriculum and are central to our ethos. Our aim is to develop confident young people who have high aspiration, a clear sense of themselves as learners and citizens, and who can contribute positively to their futures and those of others. The Academy has a PAN of 420.
Trust Background: Reach South is a young and developing Trust which operates across the South West of England with the aim of delivering all through 3-19 education. We operate 14 academies in Plymouth, Bournemouth, Dorset and Wiltshire. We are building this Trust on a clear set of values, behaviours and curriculum principles. At the heart of those values and principles is a belief in our young people and a determination to support them to develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes to become the successful citizens for today and all of their tomorrows.
Our core business is delivering exceptional education for children and young people
with a mission to help all pupils aspire to achieve beyond the expectations that others put on them. We do this through the development of a talented and committed workforce. In order to deliver exceptional opportunities for learning, we need highly motivated staff across all parts of the organisation.
Teachers within Reach South belong to a national community of professionals, and benefit from a wide range of networks and development opportunities across the Trust. In time, our best teachers are able to work across schools, develop specialisms and step up to leadership roles within and beyond their own academy. The Trust provides a strong culture of collaboration and support, together with high expectations for staff and pupils alike.
Those we recruit are able to demonstrate that they share our values, are highly motivated to work with colleagues, within and beyond their school, to continuously develop their skills and pursue professional excellence.
