Are You Determined to Give Children the Very Best Start in Life?
Would you like to teach at one of our primary schools in a collaborative and exciting multi-academy trust?
Are you looking for a teaching journey which will give you the opportunity to be involved in the development and progression of a dynamic trust and community, with excellent CPD opportunities and genuine career development?
If so, Vale Academy Trust is looking to appoint dynamic and innovative teachers across all key stages – including early years - who are determined to succeed and who are keen to learn alongside enthusiastic, committed colleagues as we continue on our journey to excellence. Our children are at the heart of everything we do and we aim to help every pupil achieve the highest standards across a broad and exciting curriculum.
Our Trust recognises that our staff are our most valuable asset and investing in our people is a key strategic priority. An extensive programme of staff development, for teachers at all stages of their career is central to our vision.
The Vale Academy Trust was formed on 1/10/13 when three local schools came together to work in partnership to ensure high quality education for children aged 3–18 in our locality. We were the first Trust in the country to include both church and non-church schools, preserving the unique nature and ethos of each whilst sharing the Trust’s vision of collaboration and mutual support. There are now eight member schools; six primary and two secondary. Our current focus is recruiting teachers for our primary schools.
For further information on the Trust, visit our website (http://www.vale-academy.org/) and click on the Vacancies tab. You will also be able to click through to the websites of each of our member schools via the Vale Academy Trust website.
Applicants will be eligible to apply for accommodation at St Marys Lodge, owned by St Mary’s Convent, in Wantage. St Marys Lodge has 6 smart, newly converted flats offered exclusively to recently qualified teachers at below market rent. Visit www.stmaryslodge.org for further details.
