The Harris Federation is a successful, highly collaborative and enterprising group of academies in and around London. Our network of academies is setting standards of excellence through an experienced and supportive approach with the aim that every child in London can have the best possible education, enabling them to fulfil their potential and decide their own future. The focus of the Harris Federation is on transforming some of the most challenging schools in London into exceptional places of learning. That means that when you work at a Harris academy, you are playing a part in something very important – giving children the freedom and the opportunities to choose their own futures.  

Harris Primary are a high performing group of primary schools all located in or around central London, mostly in areas of disadvantage. 

Our central primary consultants are a highly supportive team of specialists who have played a key part in this achievement, and help underpin Harris as a top performing MAT for primary education. Every one of our consultants has a wealth of knowledge and expertise in teaching and learning and working with academies to help develop teachers to become exemplary classroom practitioners.

We are looking to appoint an inspirational primary practitioner to our growing team of primary Teaching & Learning Consultants. This is a unique opportunity for an experienced middle leader who is currently leading a phase, or a subject and would like to further develop their leadership experience to impact on the quality of teaching across our primary academies. For those experienced and interested in SEN, we also offer the opportunity to support our network of SEND/Inclusion leaders.

This is an opportunity for you to fast track your career and gain expertise by working with a group of academies in London and to extend your understanding of different leadership and teaching approaches. Our consultant posts are an opportunity to prepare you for a future principalship.

The role involves coaching and mentoring, team teaching classes, modelling best practice, assisting in the recruitment and selection of outstanding teachers, and developing CPD opportunities. The post holder would have the opportunity to work with our in-house ITT subject mentoring.

Although based at the Harris Federation offices close to East Croydon Station (with fast access to central London and the M25), the role will mostly be located within the academies. Our academies are all located within a maximum 90-minute commute of each other, so we can share resources and knowledge, working together with on-call support from the Harris Federation.

Why work for the Harris Federation?

 As a top performing Multi-Academy Trust, we offer access to a professional and supportive community of academies, fellow Principals, and mentors to help develop and progress your career. Whatever your experience, you will benefit from the support of a highly experienced, collaborative and enterprising academy group, with unrivalled opportunities to progress to Executive Principalship and beyond.

We look for talented individuals who want to be a part of transforming education in London, and helping create exceptional places of learning.

Harris is a Federation and not a chain; each Harris academy is different, reflecting the particular aspirations and leadership style of its Principal. All of our primary and secondary academies are rated ‘good’ or ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted and we are recognised for transforming the life chances of the children and teenagers we educate.

If you would like to discuss the post in confidence, please call Sabeena Hasan, Regional Primary Director, on 020 8253 7777.
