Leadership Scale L1 – L6  

‘Helping every person achieve things they never thought they could’

We have a very simple core purpose; ‘to help every person achieve things they never thought they could.’ Everything we do revolves around this.  Our Academy is moving forward at pace.  We have created an ethos and culture that puts students at the center of our thought processes and allows teachers to teach innovative and memorable lessons.  Students have positive attitudes towards their learning and behave with consideration and respect for others. We believe collaborative and developmental approaches help enhance the teaching practice of our staff and in turn improve the outcomes and achievements of our students.

We recognise the people that work within the Lever Academy Trust are the decisive element in helping all our students to achieve things they never thought they could.  We expect the very best from everyone every day and are focused on people.  We offer staff ‘Wellbeing Credits’ which give staff the opportunity to maintain a healthy work-life balance.  We invest heavily in staff CPD and our training programmes have been recognised nationally as examples of best practice.  We understand that our staff make the difference!

The school is committed to safer recruitment practice and pre-employment checks will be undertaken before any appointment is confirmed.  This post is subject to an enhanced disclosure from the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS). The school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and it expects staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
