The Role

Our MAT is moving into an exciting new phase led by a new leadership strategy since September 2019. Whilst we know there is work to be done following the outcome of our recent Ofsted inspection of Chingford Foundation School, the school has the full support of our parents/carers and staff and remains well over-subscribed for September 2020. We believe we are in a very strong position to reverse this position quickly. Prior to the inspection we had already begun to implement plans to take the school to outstanding in the future: our MAT objectives declare an unequivocal aim to reach outstanding for each of our constituent schools and the MAT itself.  Our vision include plans to grow the Trust with the right partners in the future. South Chingford Foundation School is already an Ofsted Good school. If you are appointed to this role you will be presented with a wonderful opportunity to help mould our team, our plans and have impact from day one in post.

In essence, we wish to create an exceptional professional development model for staff which allows their practice to flourish, using pedagogical strategies that secure outstanding outcomes for young people.  The teaching and learning teams in each of our schools are highly skilled, well connected and passionate in their roles. They are already working together across the two schools to share best practices. The successful candidate will be leading a committed team of specialists to deliver a streamlined and high quality professional development and pedagogical development strategy across the Trust.  Teachers from any subject discipline will be considered and there will be an expectation that the successful candidate will have a teaching load commensurate with the level of this post and that they will teach at either site.
