Akroydon Primary Academy joined Trinity Multi-Academy Trust in February 2017.  We share the vision of all schools in the trust, which is to ensure that each and every one of our children receive an education that sets them on the path for life-long success.

We achieve this through ensuring that children are educated in an environment that is inspiring and nurturing so that they can achieve more.  We have exciting plans for our growth and continued improvement and this is an excellent opportunity to be part of our academy community.

We have benefited greatly from being part of Trinity MAT, in our first full year in the trust we have improved our headline measure (percentage of pupils achieving ARE in RWM), by 37% (from 25% to 62%).  These outcomes make the academy the second most improved primary school, out of more than 100, in Calderdale.

The successful candidate will have a passion for engaging children with the natural world and have the ability to inspire and encourage, whilst setting good clear boundaries.

You must be fully committed to optimising the opportunities that are available to children and young people, secure in the knowledge that you will be joining an ambitious and forward-thinking primary academy that is part of a growing Academy Trust.
