The Oxford Diocesan Schools Trust (ODST) is seeking to appoint a School Effectiveness Partner for January 2019 to support its growing family of schools.

ODST was founded in 2012 by the Church of England Diocese of Oxford to serve the children of Oxfordshire and Berkshire. We have 32 schools, the majority of which cover the primary phase, educating over 6,000 pupils; 27 of our schools are rated good or outstanding by Ofsted. We have a mixture of convertor and sponsored schools and the Trust contains both Church and community schools. ODST organises its schools into five geographical hubs which supports school-to-school collaboration and promotes professional development at school level as well as supporting our vision for a community of schools that work together for the common good.

This is a great opportunity for an individual with a track record in school improvement, probably at head teacher/senior leadership level, or with recent advisory experience.

Working closely as part of a small team based in modern offices near Oxford, the successful candidate will

  • support and challenge the development of ODST schools to ensure they are always providers of high quality education

  • play a key role in the effectiveness of ODST operations;

  • participate in the formulation and delivery of ODST education policy and values

  • build and maintain effective relationships with a range of stakeholders.

We will offer you the opportunity to play a leading role in one of the largest Diocesan Multi-Academy Trusts in the country, with 32 member schools across Oxfordshire and Berkshire.
