What we can offer:
• Full support from a dedicated team of senior leaders from around the trust
• A first class Behaviour for Learning system
• Excellent teaching resources
• Career progression and cross-trust working
• An excellent CPD package for all staff, including a further comprehensive programme of professional development provided through the Trinity Institute of Education and West Yorkshire Maths Hub
