Career Opportunities for Teachers during 2018
About Samuel Ward Academy Trust
We are a partnership of 19 schools located in four geographical ‘hubs’ (Haverhill, Newmarket, Bury St Edmunds and Sudbury). We share the same values, face similar issues and are geographically close enough to support and challenge each other.
We recognise the unique characteristics of each of the communities we work in and how they are reflected in distinctive school cultures. We encourage cultural diversity, celebrate the special qualities of each of our schools and recognise that to become sustainable, communities must develop and grow.
We are not looking for corporate solutions but a partnership that respects, sustains and supports. Our model is about creating interdependence, schools that are more self-sustaining than stand-alone academies, less dependent than local authority schools and more independent than schools in corporate chains.
However, we do all subscribe to a shared set of values, principles and operational processes that ensure quality of education for all our young people. Our central belief is that every young life is special; open to possibility, gifted with the potential to help change the world for the better, but also bound by the limits of their own circumstances. Our ambition is to unlock the potential of children, remover the barriers to aspiration and ensure that all our children succeed.
We are looking for dedicated, inspirational teachers to help us achieve our ambition.
Whatever stage you have reached in your career, whether NQT or Lead Practitioner, a Key Stage or Subject Specialist, a generalist teacher offering broad-based expertise, or if you are a supply teacher seeking completely flexible working we would like to hear from you.
As part of the trust, you will be offered:
* a wide range of CPD opportunities (in school, through the Suffolk Borders Teaching Alliance)
* the opportunity to join the Trust’s Research School
* opportunities for career progression (including the opportunity to participate in the Trust’s Leadership Development Programme)
* relocation assistance where applicable
* a supportive working environment
* a great place to work.
