Flexible start date – January 2023 onwards
Due to the retirement of the current and much-loved Headteacher at Lifton, we have an exciting opportunity for a school leader to join our School Trust family. Lifton Community Academy is a vibrant community where children are enthusiastic and motivated to achieve the very best they can. Lifton is a school in West Devon near the Cornwall border which is in a beautiful setting.
As well as academic excellence, our children experience a vibrant curriculum offer where outdoor learning is valued. The school is an important part of the community and the children, parents and community members would love to see this relationship continue to flourish. Lifton is a wonderful school with a warm heart and the Lifton family is excited to welcome their new Headteacher.
We are seeking someone who will drive our mission and beliefs so that every child has the right to live life to the full. Our School Trust is committed to improving educational outcomes for the most disadvantaged children, ensuring that every child experiences an excellent curriculum that is distinctive to their community.
Our School Trust is underpinned by our four core beliefs; we are stronger together, a sense of belonging; removing barriers and realising the possible. This means that by working collectively, we can achieve our absolute best to ensure that children, especially the most vulnerable, can flourish.
As well as providing the very best education for the children of Lifton, you will be part of a wider team of Headteachers who develop practice, share expertise, and innovate for the benefit of all children and colleagues within the Trust. We are proud that we are a single organisation where professional development and growth is supported and celebrated. We are an organisation who want you to feel professionally nourished and one who supports wellbeing through our offer to you.
We want to support you in deciding if we are a School Trust that you would like to join. We strongly recommend that you arrange a visit to the school and a virtual call with our Trust Lead so that you can better understand if we are an organisation which excites you and can support you to flourish.
The Learning Academy Partnership is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. DBS disclosures are required for this post along with the other necessary checks. All offers of employment are subject to an Enhanced DBS check, and where applicable, a prohibition from teaching check will be completed for all applicants.
