About Wolsey Academy
Work with us, and you’ll make an impact on our community – every day.
Wolsey Junior Academy is a happy academy, where the success of every child matters. We are proud of the education we offer our and believe strongly that a great education is one of the most precious gifts a child can receive.
How we work
Underpinning all we do is a belief that every moment a child is in school must be used effectively. If time is wasted, it is lost forever. So all our structures and policies are designed to maximise children’s learning while they are with us. We aim to make learning experiences varied and inclusive, and raising standards, particularly in Literacy and Numeracy, remains our main objective.
A UNICEF Rights Respecting School
As a STEP academy, our values – Passion, Urgency, Positivity, Aspiration and Commitment – are at the heart of everything we do. We provide an environment where children feel safe, valuable and respected and, as a Rights Respecting School, create many opportunities for them to take leading roles in school life. Meaning Wolsley pupils become very confident and self-assured individuals.
STEP Academy Trust
We know that it is the exceptional quality of our staff that is key to our success. That’s why we’ll invest in your career and give you an unrivalled benefits package.
We are a growing family of primary academies that strive together for excellence. So we spread best practice, transfer staff to support partner academies, share specialist knowledge and consistently challenge the status quo. Giving you every opportunity to grow and develop in your role.
We want you to do well, that’s why we offer:
- Great opportunities for accelerated promotion – right across our nine-academy trust
- Fully funded leadership training courses (MPQML, NPQSL, NPQH)
- Fully funded Masters and PhD courses
- At least seven NQT development days each year
- Pay rises for all teaching staff above those awarded nationally (we recently awarded all teaching staff a 2% pay increase – double the 1% recommendation from the Government).
And with free lunch everyday, we’ll keep you well fed too.
We are always looking for talented professionals who share our mission. If you share our drive to improve the life chances of all children, we’d love to hear from you
