About Drake Primary Academy

School Background: You will be joining Drake Primary Academy at an exciting time as we continue to develop our curriculum to achieve the best possible outcomes for children. We have dedicated staff and our children love learning. We are a forward thinking school that has an exciting values led curriculum.
Drake Primary is a successful, highly regarded single form entry primary academy with a PAN of 210. The academy was built in the 1950s but it has been modernised in recent years. The academy is very popular and often oversubscribed for the September foundation intake. The Academy was inspected in July 2015 and received a good grade overall. Behaviour and safety were areas of particular strength and this reflects the strong emphasis placed on the children’s social and emotional development in our calm, caring environment.
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.
