Following a rigorous selection process last week, we did not appoint to the positions of Director of Performance and Standards. These posts are key in our desire to raise standards in all our schools across the Trust and we have to ensure we make the correct appointments.
However, this situation has allowed us to think a little more creatively about these vacancies. We currently have some very talented primary Headteachers in within the St Ralph Sherwin Trust and we believe that these colleagues could take on the roles successfully on a secondment basis.
This is a quite unique and exciting opportunity to work across our primary schools supporting and helping to raise standards further as well as receiving some outstanding professional development. Unlike the original advert, the focus would be entirely primary based for the successful candidates. Applications are invited from any primary Headteachers by mid-day on Monday 14th May.
We will be in touch in due course about arrangements for the secondary schools with regard to school improvement support.
