A unique and exciting opportunity has arisen to become the first Head of Academy at our brand new school, St Michael’s C of E Academy, set in the heart of Paignton, South Devon.
St Michael’s will be an exceptional and inclusive Church of England School and part of the highly successful Learning Academy Partnership family of schools. The Learning Academy Partnership is a highly successful Multi Academy Trust made up of both Church of England and community schools situated across Torbay and Devon. We are passionate about improving life chances for every child and are proud to be recognised nationally as being in the top 10 high performing Trusts for high outcomes and the progress that all our children make.
Our schools are each at the centre of their local communities and celebrate their individuality and distinctiveness. A core feature in how we work as a Trust is our collective and united approach in delivering an exceptional education for all children. We do this through working very closely together in mutual support and challenge to empower excellence for our children, families and the communities that we serve. You will therefore be joining a family of Leaders, fully committed to supporting and empowering you throughout your leadership journey and the development of our newest school. You will also play an important role in the development of our Trust in contributing to shaping and driving our future direction. In short, our ethos is one of working together to Collectively Empower Excellence.
St Michael’s Church of England Academy will be opening its doors to nursery and reception children in September 2020 and will increase by one Year Group year-on-year, until we have classes in every Year Group from nursery through to Year 6.
Applications are invited for the post of Head of Academy with responsibility for the day-to-day leadership and management of the school. This is a great opportunity to become the first Head of Academy of this new school. In the first instance the role will initially have a 0.6fte teaching commitment.
