About Share Multi-Academy Trust
Share multi-academy trust is a partnership created to provide services and support to benefit the children we teach. We believe that by working together, sharing our expertise and resources, schools grow and improve.
We officially started operating on 1st April 2015 and our members consist of two national teaching and national support schools in Heaton Avenue Primary School and Shelley College, together with Millbridge Junior, Infant & Nursery School and Cowlersley Primary School. Heaton Avenue and Shelley College are the co-founders of the Green Light Alliance, a national teaching school, with the brief to train teachers and improve standards across a partnership of schools.
We want to create a mutually supportive family of schools because we believe that, by sharing our expertise and resources, we improve the quality of education for our children and young people.
Our central belief is “Valuing People, Supporting Personal Best” and we apply this to everybody in our organisation, staff and children alike. We try our best to support and encourage each other, we work hard at communicating effectively and we always try to achieve the very best we possibly can in the circumstances. We review our practice honestly and are always open to suggestions as to how we can improve further.
Professional and career development is at the heart of what we do. In addition to our supportive appraisal systems, staff have access to a wide range of training and development opportunities including internal training sessions, external courses and sharing best practice across the trust.
The Green Light Teaching School Alliance is also an integral part of our professional development offering, whereby staff are able to share skills, experience, talent and capacity to help improve the learning and achievement of young people across the region and beyond. Across our partner schools there are Subject Experts, Specialist Leaders of Education, Excellent Practitioners, trained Coaches and Mentors, as well as Outstanding Leaders offering support and training. We are offering an opportunity of a career development programme that could take teachers on a journey from trainee to senior leader and beyond.
If you’d like to know more about our staff and their career paths, please see our staff career profiles.
We are in located in the Huddersfield/Kirklees district, with many of our schools in close proximity to a number of towns and cities including Leeds, Manchester and Sheffield. Due to the excellent road links, journey times are minimal, with many of our staff travelling from these areas on a daily basis.
We believe in making the world a happier place to work. We do that by providing a package of flexible employee benefits, including:
• An attractive pension scheme for both Teaching and Support Staff.
• School’s Advisory Service – staff well-being support and medical cover, including amongst other things: counselling; physiotherapy; and operations.
• Share Academy Savers – the home of our employee benefits. Offering discounts on everything from groceries and shopping through to holidays, insurance, days out, restaurants and more.
• Salary sacrifice benefit schemes - salary sacrifice enables staff to give up some of the cash value of their pay to receive other benefits which saves on tax and national insurance. The Trust currently runs the following salary sacrifice schemes:
o Childcare Vouchers - savings of up to £933 a year. Childcare vouchers can be used for pre-school and nursery costs plus after school clubs, summer camps and even independent school fees.
o Bikes – savings of up to 42% on the cost of a new bike.
o Techscheme – savings on the cost of Desktop machines, Laptops, Apple Products, Phones and software.
