Equitas Academies Trust was formed in September 2012 and incorporates Aston Manor Academy (Secondary) and Chilwell Croft Academy (Primary). Both Academies are happy, exciting and inspiring learning environments for their children who are from a vibrant mix of cultures. The staff and Trustees have a great sense of pride in their schools and care passionately about their pupils.
Chilwell Croft Academy is a rapidly improving Primary School with committed, enthusiastic staff and very supportive parents. During a recent Ofsted inspection Chilwell Croft Academy was judged as a school requiring improvement but leadership and management, pupil behaviour and early years provision were rated as good (October 2016). The Academy has been on an extremely rewarding journey over the last 18 months and is moving in the right direction. The Academy leaders and staff place a strong emphasis on positive attitudes, high quality learning, and a strong team approach. As a consequence, the school has made very strong progress and is a happy and harmonious community where pupils from different ethnic heritages work together well and feel safe.
Chilwell Croft Academy is seeking to appoint a Headteacher who is a strong strategic leader. The successful candidate will be capable of all aspects of school management and be passionate about overall improvement. They will be able to demonstrate creative and innovative practice and work in partnership, leading and communicating effectively with children, parents, staff and Trustees.
The successful candidate will be a motivational and approachable leader who has a track record of being an exemplary classroom practitioner. They will be expected to have a strong commitment to the learning and development of every child within the Academy and have an understanding of the community ethos. The successful candidate will possess the drive and determination to help transform Chilwell Croft Academy into an ‘outstanding’ school of the future.
This is a fantastic opportunity for someone who believes they have got what it takes to make a real difference to the life experiences and achievements of inner city pupils.
