This is an exciting time to join Cathedral Schools Trust and to help drive the continuing improvement of the primary phase of our family of schools.
As part of the Central Team, this role offers an inspirational combination of dynamic, supportive colleagues and an historic setting with offices in the Trust’s Bristol Cathedral Choir School, on College Green in central Bristol.
The Primary Teaching and Learning Lead will play a key role in creating an environment where all colleagues can achieve their best. This will include coordinating the primary ITT provision and the support for Early Career Teachers; developing a programme of CPD opportunities for colleagues in the primary phase; and by acting as a mentor and coach to staff at all levels across the Trust.
We believe in sharing good practice and collaborative working, while ensuring that each of our schools continues to have its own unique characteristics. The Primary Teaching and Learning Lead will broker and build on opportunities for partnership and collaboration across the Trust, supporting progress towards each school’s development plan priorities.
With both the oldest and newest schools in the city as part of our family, Cathedral Schools Trust offers a unique combination of historic foundations and new opportunities. We are a fully inclusive MAT, with both non-faith community schools and Church of England schools, that celebrates diversity and encourages excellence for all members of our community. Music is an important part of our schools, enhancing our sense of community via performance and celebration.
CST is a Mixed MAT and is currently made up of three secondary schools (Bristol Cathedral Choir School, Trinity Academy and St Katherine’s School) and four primary schools (Headley Park Primary School, Victoria Park Primary School, Stoke Park Primary School and Cathedral Primary School). The trust has had an affiliated Teaching School Alliance providing support for primary and secondary schools across the region, a comprehensive ITT route and offering CPD opportunities for staff including NPQ and MA accredited courses. There are also opportunities for staff to become accredited SLEs, LLEs and NLEs.
Our staff are proud to work for the Trust and value the strong, respectful relationships between colleagues. As a Trust, we are not complacent. We listen to staff and act on their feedback to drive meaningful change to continue to make CST an outstanding place to work.
