About Co-op Academy Stoke-on-Trent
Co-op Academy Stoke-on-Trent is at an exciting stage in its development. Six years after becoming a sponsored academy we have students making continued positive progress, a much improved ethos, excellent behaviour and attitudes to learning and a “Good with Outstanding features“ accreditation from Ofsted, achieved in March 2013. Our 2016 results meant that we should be in the top 20% nationally for Progress 8. We moved into a brand new £23m Academy building in September 2012 with many state of the art facilities, which provides an excellent learning environment for students and staff.
Our vision is to empower everyone to reach their potential and be the best. We are a caring and supportive community; we pride ourselves on providing high challenge but also significant support for our students, whether that support is academic or social and emotional. In 2016 we were the regional winners of the prestigious DfE Character Award. We are proud to be a diverse community, we welcome everybody. Our core values are equality, responsibility and respect. Our behaviour and rewards system is built around these core values. We are conscious that we are shaping young people for the future and not simply training them to pass exams.
We are looking for colleagues who are up for these challenges; who want to make a real difference to the lives of the children they work with; who want to challenge the consequences of poverty and deprivation through education; who are committed to their own professional development and who want to be outstanding teachers, classroom assistants, administrators, leaders, and support workers across a wide range of roles in our academy.
The Academy is part of the Co-operative Academies Trust (CAT), a multi-academy trust with academies in Stoke-on-Trent, Manchester and Leeds.
What we offer…
• The opportunity to work in a highly successful Academy with a growing reputation as a high-performing educational setting.
• Significant opportunities for professional development and growth within the Academy and the Trust.
• The opportunity to work under the ethics and values of the Co-operative.
• Co-operative Academies Trust benefits package.
