Are you passionate about school improvement, the need to raise achievement and inspired by improving the lives of children? If so join our highly successful Academies Improvement Team by applying for this post.

The Diocese of Norwich Education and Academies Trust (DNEAT) has a proven track record of improving schools and is entering another significant and exciting phase of growth. We seek an outstanding leader to play a pivotal role in further developing our organisation in order to ensure high quality education for children across Norfolk and North Suffolk within the context of our inclusive Christian ethos, vision and values. We have had an extremely successful year in 2018 characterised by improved standards and successful Ofsted outcomes. An Ofsted review of the Trust in March this year found:

 ‘recent inspections of Trust schools and Trust-wide assessment information reflect a positive pattern of ongoing change. Pupils are making better progress because the quality of teaching, learning and assessment is improving. High-level ambition and raised expectations are at the heart of this cultural shift’.

The successful candidate will be accountable for ensuring the educational success of academies in a defined regional group within the overall framework of the DNEAT approach to school improvement. You will be responsible for providing support and challenge to each academy’s Headteacher/Head of School and Local Governing Body across all aspects of their work.

We are looking for outstanding educational leaders, who command the respect of head teachers and can make a significant contribution to their success. You will have a proven track record of school improvement, with the ability to read a school, understand what is required and coach others to success.

You will have the personal qualities to work effectively with individuals within the organisation and beyond, to challenge where necessary and to create a culture of learning and improvement across the primary phase. You will be skilled in working in partnership with others, helping to create a team which ensures the success and achievement of all children.
