An exciting opportunity has arisen at Ambleside Primary School, a larger than average 3 form entry primary Academy within the heart of the city of Nottingham. There are 735 pupils on roll and a nursery located within the Foundation Unit caters for 78 part-time places in both morning and afternoon sessions.
Ambleside is a school full of potential – with a supportive senior leadership team, a conscientious and enthusiastic staff team who have great ambitions for the school and fantastic children who want to learn.
The school was categorised by Ofsted as a school in special measures in 2016 following a legacy of low achievement. The Trust was asked to formally sponsor the Academy following this judgement and Ambleside was welcomed into the Trust in 2018. The Trust comprises five diverse academies including special schools and PRU’s. The common thread that unites the academies is their unwavering inclusive beliefs and practice.
- Manage the Academy attendance to bring in line with national expectations.
- Implement, plan, develop and review strategies to improve attendance at the Academy
- Effectively co-ordinate and liaise with other professionals in a multi-agency context
- Contribute to interagency development to enable children and young people to stay safe, achieve and make the best of the educational opportunities available to them
