About Cumbria Academy for Autism

Cumbria Academy for Autism is a brand new, aspirational special free-school. It will serve the boroughs of Allerdale and Copeland in West Cumbria, providing a unique educational experience for 56 students between the ages of 4 to 19 years old. We will deliver high quality education and intervention in a learning environment which will enable children to achieve their full potential in their future lives. We are passionate about improving the life chances of autistic children and young people in West Cumbria. After three years of planning and applications we have now been approved by the DfE, with local authority support, to open in September 2019.

We are seeking to recruit dynamic individuals who will share our vision. We aim to recruit an exemplary and highly energetic leadership group and staff team that will quickly establish CAA as a centre of excellence for autism learning.

We are looking for leaders and staff who will have a positive contribution towards an open and trusting culture, who can bring a collaborative and ‘can do’ solution-focused attitude and who know that the only way to achieve excellence is to maintain and motivate high-performing teams across the school. Successful candidates will demonstrate their enthusiasm, drive and dedication to make CAA a school that can guarantee to maximise pupil progress and achievement through an outstanding learning experience.

If you feel you can meet the needs of all our students without limitation, and are excited to support CAA on its journey, then we look forward to hearing from you. Please be sure to follow Cumbria Academy for Autism, on the TES site, to receive notifications of our vacancies as they arise.
